"Cake - how sweet it is."
(A quick note to my children.)I was driving down main street and I saw a pristine chocolate cake sitting in the middle of the road and it was still wrapped in the plastic covering . It had reminded me of the times when God had sent things into our lives that we needed and just when we needed them. Like the time I needed a winter coat for Rose and I found one exactly her size and for the amount of money I had in my pocket. I can't tell you how many times this has happened to me and these events have solidified my belief in God to such an extent that I've become militant about him. Once I had scoffed and said, "God, if your for real then send me a flower vase just like my broken Madonna and Christ child flower vase that sits in my kitchen window only the one you send can't be cracked and it has to be smaller to fit on the window ledge better and I want it for a quarter"..... "I laughed and said, "Good luck with that." (I never speak to him in that tone anymore and I always say please and thank you)
Children I want you to understand that as the suffering in your life begins to pan out you gotta know that
no matter what, God will take care of you. I wont tell you that your not going to suffer because I believe you are but I am saying to trust in God with your whole heart and mind and he will not abandon you... ever!
(If anyone wants the address for that cake just let me know)
Look at the birds in the sky; they do not sow or reap, they gather nothing into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are not you more important than they? Can any of you by worrying add a single moment to your life-span? Why are you anxious about clothes? Learn from the way the wild flowers grow. They do not work or spin. But I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was clothed like one of them. If God so clothes the grass of the field, which grows today and is thrown into the oven tomorrow, will he not much more provide for you, O you of little faith? So do not worry and say, 'What are we to eat?' or 'What are we to drink?' or 'What are we to wear?' All these things the pagans seek. Your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom (of God) and his righteousness,and all these things will be given you besides. Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself. Sufficient for a day is its own evil.
