But I saw there was cake


chocolate cakeI wasn’t invited. I just popped in looking for an empty room to discuss future employment with a teacher.

But, hey, I saw there was cake — CHOCOLATE cake.

It was a surprise birthday party for one of the kids in the school. So I came in and sat down. They didn’t kick me out. And soon enough, they served me a slice of that yummy chocolate cake.

What fault do I have? I just hung around for a good thing. #PartyCrasherParExcellence

When you spy a good thing, it’s a good idea to hang around. Such is salvation. If you are able to discern (through the fog of confusion of lies in our current culture) the goodness of God, hang around. Go to church. Read the Bible. Pray.

They’ll be serving the cake SOON. At the marriage supper of the Lamb. This is another lesson I learned in the Guatemala church I started 20 years ago.

  2. WOW!! This is brief and packs a whollup (as we say in the Midwest USA). Retweeted.

  3. Also put on facebook with your site address. Thanks for this! Dawn

  4. I went astray from my faith for awhile at the end of highschool/college when my parents divorced, but when I met my husband my last year of college and he took me on a “date” to church, I knew God had sent me something really good. I started to get back into my faith with his example as my guide (he had converted to Catholicism on his own in college). Before we got married, we of course went to confession. It had been my first time in awhile. It was so cathartic to start our marriage off with a clean slate. I thank god every day he sent me my husband to bring me back closer to him. Praying with him at meals and in the critical times of our life has brought me more joy/peace than I thought possible. Your post reminded me of this part of my journey. Wise words as always. Thanks for sharing! And what a delicious-looking cake!

  5. But don’t forget that the guest who wasn’t wearing wedding clothes got kicked out ….

  6. Made me thought about the grace that we didn’t deserve!
