very ill little boy was telling his Grandma how "everything"
was going wrong...
school was too hard, family problems other than his illness, his severe pain,
just all the hardships he was going through. Meanwhile, Grandma was baking a cake.
She asked the child if he would like a snack, which of course he does.
"Here. Have some cooking oil." "Yuck," said the boy. "How about a couple of raw eggs?"
"Gross, Grandma." "Would you like some flour then? Or maybe baking soda?"
"Grandma, those are all yucky!" To which the Grandma replied: "Yes, Sweetheart,
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 the yucky stuff will make of our
lives something wonderful!"
