Back to the basics

Cake decorating has been keeping me extremely busy in April.  Thanks to all my fans, I have been creating edible art every week!  Here are some of my latest projects...

What I love about this experience is the fact that I keep on creating new things, learning new things and making people happy.  It is not always easy to figure out how to come up with a design, but I like the challenge.

However, just last night, as I was reading posts on cake decorating, I started asking my Father to give me the wisdom to continue to be in touch with Him...to always be mindful of having the right attitude and to use this gift in a way that is pleasing to Him before anything else.

To that end, I have decided to block a couple of weekends off in May.  Part of me doesn't want to but deep inside me I know what is right - if I want to continue blessing others with cake, I cannot get overtired.  And even beyond that...my family comes first before anything else.

Don't get me wrong - I'm loving cake decorating!  But sometimes when one is too excited one can overlook things - I don't want to.  And to me, it all boils down to purpose - what was the original purpose of God showing me and giving me this gift?  It was to discover that He is never completely done with us, that He has so much more for us, that He delights to see us happy, and that He wants me to share this gift with all of you.
