Why not eat cake for breakfast?



Why not eat cake for breakfast? This day should start with celebration.


We made it y’all!


We stand at the end of 2020 - a year filled with ups and downs, amazements and astonishments, joys and sorrows, blessings and blunders, celebrations and circumstances beyond our control.


As I sat down this morning, I remembered the coconut cake in the fridge - my husband’s granny’s recipe. She sent the remainder home with me after Christmas in 1995. I was on bed rest waiting the arrival of our first child. That coconut cake brought me comfort, joy and a few extra pounds back then.


This morning it did the same. With each bite I savored on this last day of 2020, I remembered this year. Who will ever forget it?


I didn’t want to sit in the sadness or struggle, instead I wanted to begin today in celebration of the very goodness of God.


As we walk through the last day of this unprecedented year, let’s take time to focus “on the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.” (Philippians 4:8-9)


Let’s give thanks, let’s celebrate and eat our cake, too.
