Our grand-daughter made me a Birthday Cake. It was delicious and obviously made with ‘love’. It was appreciated very much. Memories of the time will be treasured always.
Before the outbreak of the French Revolution the French Queen Marie Antionette is famously quoted as saying to starving peasants ….If the children have no bread……then let them eat cake. (she had NO comprehension of the suffering of the people).
In a strange reversal in a ‘spiritual’ sense our 2019 world hungers for success being acknowledged. noticed and believing that only CAKE.….the Good Life….the materialistic glitter and glamour are the MOST IMPORTANT THINGS TO LIVE FOR.
Jesus who came to die for all suffering humanity and give those who will an eternal future …..
said: I AM…THE BREAD OF LIFE. Follow ME! John 10:v10 I have come that they may have LIFE in all its FULLNESS.
It’s a FREE choice. Either follow HIM and choose the BREAD OF LIFE and live by His Standards and still have cake and all of life’s higher blessings and treasures or just have CAKE without the BREAD of LIFE who came to save our souls for ETERNITY.
Bread and Cake WOW! or just…..CAKE.
A thought for today. Blessings! Peace! and Love!
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
