It never ceases to amaze me how God works! Although Peter and I do not celebrate Christmas, my family do. This year my son announced he was coming to spend Christmas with us on the mountain with his wife and baby. I was thrilled of course to have my grandson in my home for the first time. Then my daughter asked if she could come also, I was going to ask her but she got in to ask before I offered. Shortly after this, my daughter in law called and asked could she invite her mother and brother, I realized it was becoming a little party! I have not catered for a family Christmas in over 17 years, and so this year I decided to do some baking for Christmas; Christmas cake, mince pies, and Australia’s favorite dessert, Pavlova.
I started on the Christmas cake and had a wonderful time mixing all the ingredients and making the cake. Afterwards, the kitchen looked as if a bomb had hit it, but the cakes (I made two of them) smelled lovely as they slowly cooked. Although I have a dishwasher in the kitchen, I chose to wash the dishes by hand. I always rinse my dishes after washing them and for some reason one of the bowls I was using tipped over and spilt water all over the bench, under the electric kettle and other appliances. I was not happy, as there was a lot of water! As I was cleaning up with kitchen towel, I suddenly noticed the electric kettle was covered in cake mix. So were some other appliances and when I looked closely, it was also up the tiles of the wall. Had I not spilled the water, I doubt if I would have seen it, one needed to get up close to see it. From a disaster, came a blessing!
It made me ponder on all the times things happen to us and we curse and get angry. When often it can be a blessing in disguise. As one raises ones vibration, you become aware of how useless it is to worry, fret, get upset and get angry over mundane things. If one gives no energy to an issue, it cannot go anywhere, because it needs energy to fuel it! It is not an easy thing to do letting go of all those things, but it can be done with a Masters help. When we let go of the mundane, we can then see the real truth and this allows us to help ourselves far more than we have ever been able to do.
The cakes came out of the oven very delicious, and I made a note NOT to react again when I spill water!
