Also I made a mint chocolate chip Oreo ice cream cake for Michael's birthday awhile back. I used an angel food cake pan so that it would be thicker. That worked out, but I forgot to put wax paper under the Oreo crust so it didn't flip out of the pan like it was supposed to. I cut and served it. It turned out wonderful! I was so excited that Michael said, "I think you're more excited than I am!" He was right. I was very pleased with the results. And everyone liked it. Chock one up for DIYs!
As some of you know, my family has been going through a challenging time. Certain events have been very unfavorable, and being completely human, I have been searching for someone to blame. The only answer seems like God. I realize my anger is wrong. If I don't trust God, who can I trust, you know? But I really needed something from God. Honestly, I don't even remember what I had been asking Him for, but it was nothing like what I received.
For quite some time I have seen a comforter at the store that I really liked and wanted. I couldn't afford it and put it in the back of my mind. Well, yesterday I found a beautiful comforter at a garage sale. They wanted at the lowest $15 for it. They said it was pretty much brand new. I didn't have the money with me and we went home where I found enough for it. I got a little excited and Mom took me back later in the afternoon. I was able to get the comforter and the sheets to go with it for $17 dollars! Saving me $8 from the written price on it. I was very happy with it! We went to the store this morning, and I happened to see the exact same set. Originally $45. Blessing of the Lord.
Also this morning, a friend of ours called us up and asked if I would like a refurbished electric acoustic guitar. Of course!
So, the moral is that God's love doesn't run out on us even when we feel like running out on Him. Praise God!
May God bless you all and guide you on your path.
Teen for the Lord
