How long should I put this in for?

I got an email from a friend tonight that said this:

God's cake....
Sometimes we wonder,
'What did I do to deserve this?' or
'Why did God have to do this to me?'

Here is a wonderful explanation!

A daughter is telling her Mother how everything
is going wrong, she's failing algebra, her boyfriend
broke up with her and her best friend is moving away.
Meanwhile, her Mother is baking a cake and
asks her daughter if she would like a snack, and the
daughter says, 'Absolutely Mom, I love your cake.'
'Here, have some cooking oil,' her Mother offers.
'Yuck' says her daughter..
'How about a couple raw eggs?' 'Gross, Mom!'
'Would you like some flour then?
Or maybe baking soda?'
'Mom, those are all yucky!'
To which the mother replies:
'Yes, all those things seem bad all by themselves.
But when they are put together in the
right way, they make a wonderfully delicious cake! '

God works the same way. Many times we wonder why
He would let us go through such bad and difficult
times. But God knows that when He puts these things
all in His order, they always work for good! We just
have to trust Him and, eventually, they will all
make something wonderful!

God is crazy about you.
He sends you flowers every spring and
a sunrise every morning.
Whenever you want to talk, He'll listen.
He can live anywhere in the universe,
and He chose your heart.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are
here we might as well dance!


  1. Thank you so much for sharing that. I often wonder why God is putting me through what I am going through. I just recently started following your blog because my unborn baby girl Sophia Grace was diagnosed with anencephaly on February 23rd. I sit back every day and ask myself... Why me? I may never find the answer to all my questions. But I think this post just might help. Thanks again

  2. Thank you for sharing that Stacy. It really is so applicable in my life right now!
    One of my daughter's is going through a rough patch right now and I want to share it with her.

  3. Thank you for sharing is a great reminder that all the bad turns into something beautiful if we allow it to work in the way it was designed to work in our lives. Knowing that the process turns us into something so beautiful is such an encouragement.

    Just love that! Thank you for sharing!
    My sister-in-law is pregnant w/twins & just recently went for an U/S to discover that the babies are not alive. She will be going in for surgery on April 4.
    She is grieving & this is something that I can show her that will hopefully help make sense of such a difficult situation.
    Thanks again!
    Praying for you!!


  5. Stacy,

    I'm so tickled you liked this enough to share it with your bloggers! Love you, girlfriend!

    BIG hugs,

  6. Thanks for posting this! It has been 2 years since my little one passed, but this helps to answer all the "whys" that I still have swimming around in my head.

  7. I LOVE this, my best friend Alanna emailed this shortly after Lilly passed away. I LOVE reading it!


We so appreciate your words of encouragement!
Thank you! ♥ The Aubes
