waiting to go to the mtc
waiting for the weekend
waiting for letters
waiting for lunch at work
waiting for mr. right
waiting for answers to prayers
waiting for not waiting anymore
waiting for the cookies to be done
waiting to see if i am really making the right choices
sometimes this gets old...
when i was down at school, baking and cooking were the things i did to help me clear my mind, to forget about the things weighing me down and just worry about something that isn't so trivial. i was reminded of how relaxing this is yesterday when i baked some cookies.
and as i waited for the cookies to cook, i thought to myself that i never really worry too much about how they will turn out. i have learned to trust the recipes and my life experiences with cookies and so far i've been pretty successful. sure waiting for them isn't always that fun, but eventually the waiting ends. and.. the waiting was worth it.
i guess it taught me a bit of a life lesson. i am waiting for ALL these things all the time, and how cool is it that no matter where i am in my life, the best is YET to be. i really need to just trust the instructions (recipes for success) that i have been blessed with in my life and what life has taught me so far. i don't need to worry about how it will all turn out in the end, because as long as i follow the recipe, i'll be fine. and... the waiting will be worth it.
sometimes i think... really?? this is MY life?
how sweeet is that. it is exciting. i learn. i cry. i laugh. i pray. i see miracles around me. i get answers to prayers. i read. i grow. i know sadness. but i know greater happiness. i am only one person, but i'm significant. i make mistakes. i love. this is the sweetness of my life.
and that... is the way the cookie crumbles
