Icing on the cake

Today is Day 11 of the Ultimate Blog Challenge.

The suggested topic for blogging, take it or leave it, was dessert time: What’s the best dessert you’ve ever eaten?

OR, you can go for an allegory and talk about what the “icing on the cake” is for you in a particular experience.

For me, my husband Ray is the yellow cake and our 3 beautiful daughters Heather, Eden, and Leah are the chocolate frosting. Our 3 precious grandchildren are the colorful sprinkles and flower decorations on top. God is all the ingredients going into that wonderful cake.

Is that too ridiculous? But so true. I love my family and am so thankful to God for them. And I LOVE yellow cake with chocolate frosting ~ it’s my fave!

What is your favorite dessert?

The little things

Yesterday when I went to our weekly small group (our home church), my sweet friend Ruth and her daughter Abi blessed me with these beautiful, fresh flowers: pink roses, pink and purple carnations, white and yellow daisies.

I love fresh flowers. This made me so happy.
