So, every holiday season I attempt to bake. Baking is a lot of work, "labor of love". Prep time and clean up time are the worst. Next to that, the waiting while baking is time consuming. I've never really thought of baking as fun. I consider baking work. A true labor of love. I'm really good at baking, but it is so time consuming, for things that I really shouldn't eat any way, and for the most part I don't. I do however, love those I bake for. I love giving my baked goods to others. They throughly enjoy them and that is my reward. Every year they are the most requested gift.
See we are not all to be the same. There are different ingredients that go into each of us. Some of us have had opportunities others have not. Some of us have been through some heat, and fire, that others have not experienced. Still there are those that have been cut on, but never made it to the icing of life. God is the one in charge. He alone decides our purpose. But, then it is up to us to work with what we have been given. It is up to us to yield to His hand, and divine purpose for our life.
