My beginning was His creation.
I come from a family of bakers, my grandfather started the legacy then, he passed it to my father and my uncle and they passed it onto their spouses and then their children.
Because, I have fond memories of being a daughter of a particular baker; my father. I would like to pass along my journey as a daughter of a baker and as a child that once was lost, but, has since been found.
We were created with a purpose and for a purpose.
Beginning with Baking Ingredients
Baking ingredients have multiple uses and there are some ingredients that do not do well together. There are some ingredients that can cause some pretty bad outcomes. Forgetting an ingredient can cause something to not rise, sink or sulk.
Cake Decorating Creation
Whether it is decorating a baked cake or covering up a mistake, the mistake is still there. We may have covered it up but, know that” the cover up is only temporary. We think that not seeing the mistake it will remain hidden, well I have some news for you!
Decorating Icing Has Its Purpose
When you ice over a torn piece of cake, you will need to use a whole lot of icing to cover it up. If you are using spatula you will need to have the right amount of icing and the right consistency of the icing. All in hope that you will not cause the cake to crumble more, these decorating cover ups (mistakes) are much like our sins.
Upon the first attempt you may get a lot of cake crumbs mixed up in your icing. Know that these crumbs are still being exposed. The multiple icing layers may cover up the mistake for a short span of time. Sooner or later the icing will start giving way. The icing will pull away from the cake because, the damaged area had no foundation to hold onto.
Eventually, the cake will crumble and the covered piece will fall away. This is much like our life experiences, you know the things that we kept hidden, deep inside of us.
The cake must be on a hard surface so we can move it with out it crumbling. Our life, must have a firm foundation too and that firm foundation is God!
What do you want your cake to look like? Does the cake contents matter more than the exterior decoration? How do we become a new creation? We must spend time reading the bible. Eventually you will learn why things have happened and continue to happen. If you want to change that you too can by becoming a new creation.
I am a bakers daughter and what you may call a third generation baker. I was brought up in a family of bakers that never divorced. My father was a baker and my mom was a stay at home mom. My life had its fair share of ups and downs. Yet, to this day I choose not to allow the downs in life pull me down.
