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

We had such a good time last year that we decided to make participating in the tour de cure an annual tradition. Thanks so much to everyone who either donated last year or has given this year. You make all the difference. This year is especially exciting because more of my family is joining in! We decided to make a family team and our name is the BLOOD SUGAR DADDIES. Our team is growing and it is going to be a great ride and will take place on June 13,2009.
I'll keep you updated as we continue to prepare for the ride. To see my tour page go to http://main.diabetes.org/site/TR/TourdeCure/TDC530148030?px=4065695&pg=personal&fr_id=5629&et=N84VoAMzCmhr5JeH8Sp4Uw..&s_tafId=257546
