I just love that someone invented the crock pot! Just toss in the seasoned roast, potatoes, onions, carrots, and the secret ingredient ~ mushroom soup ~ and my time in the kitchen is done! My relaxing afternoon was about to begin.
Oh no! I forgot the cake I had promised to make. I scurry off to the store to get the needed ingredients ... knowing that I was cutting it close! I couldn’t help but smile to myself. I knew I had avoided the look of undeniable disappointment that would have stared me in the face.
When I arrived home, I was totally unprepared for what I was about to experience. The aroma was powerful! The smell of the roast brought about memories of my mother preparing the roast for Sunday lunch. Those are precious memories that I will embrace forever. If only I could tell her one more time how much I loved her.
All of a sudden, I realized I needed to take care of something that has been heavy on my heart. I had to go and see my sweet “crazy lady.”
A short time later I delivered a hot meal and hugs I will treasure forever. We held hands and looked into each other’s eyes. There were no words for a few minutes, just more hugs.
As I left, I wept softly. I knew God had it all under control. As I continued my short walk home, a scripture verse came to me which brought me comfort.
Be still, and know that I am God.
