    Sometimes we wonder, "What did I do to deserve
    this?" or "Why did God have to do this to me?" Here
    is a wonderful explanation!
    * * * * *

    > A daughter is telling her Mother how everything is
    > going wrong, she's failing algebra, her boyfriend
    > broke up with her and her best friend is moving away.

    > Meanwhile, her Mother is baking a cake and asks
    > her daughter if she would like a snack, and the
    > daughter says, "Absolutely Mom, I love your cake."

    > Here, have some cooking oil," her Mother
    > offers. "Yuck" says her daughter.

    > "How about a couple raw eggs?"
    > "Gross, Mom!"

    > "Would you like some flour then? Or maybe baking soda?"
    > "Mom, those are all yucky!"

    > To which the mother replies: "Yes, all 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, they will all
    > make something wonderful!

    > God is crazy about you. He sends you flowers
    > every spring and a sunrise every morning.

    > Whenever you want to talk, He'll listen. He can
    > live anywhere in the universe, and He chose your heart.

    > If you like this, send this on to the people you
    > really care about. I did.

    > I hope your day is a "piece of cake!"

    > Life may not be the party we hoped for, but
    > while we are here we might as well dance.

    May your day be filled with blessings, like the sun that
    lights the sky. And may you always have the courage to spread your
    wings and fly.
