Yum, I love pie, don't you?
Fresh out the oven~and sliced, placed in a bowl,
and I add a touch of milk and sugar.
My gang prefers to eat pie with ice cream.
Both ways are perfectly fine!
Life is this way. To know what you dislike directs you to what you like.
To establish what you want in spite of being alone in your choice is also a directional path.
We need not be exactly like everyone else.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:
marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
Psalm 139:14 (This is a Psalm by David and he is praising God)
We each are fearfully and wonderfully made. Unique and designed specifically for a purpose.
If you believe you are fearfully and wonderfully made you have a foundation to live your life. You have worth, purpose, and importance to those around you, yourself, and the Creator. You will see those around you and appreciate that they are fearfully and wonderfully made as well, and your perspective reveals such.
When I posted the photo above, I thought to the moment I made the pie. My family could not wait for it to come out of the oven as the aromas were ever so incredible. I served the pie and everyone enjoyed it, exactly the way they wanted. Now my family had one advantage over you, the reader of this blog. They saw the zucchini peelings and knew I had made a mock apple pie with zucchini. One year I devoted each day to created another recipe for squash and the pie creation was a delightful surprise. They knew it was not an apple pie-yet anticipated what possibilities that a zucchini pie could offer.
Perspective is everything. Your day will end with a few outcomes
1. You will have a wonderful day in spite of not having everything you need, deserve, or expect.
2. You will have a horrible day because you need, deserve, or expect something.
3. You will die (God forbid), but this is an option.
4. You will have an incredible day taking each moment as a gift and appreciate that with the bad must come good and vise-versa.
I have known a fair share of moaning, complaining people. It is ever so difficult to be around people that can only see #2, no matter how wonderful their lives are. I challenge my readers to live a day with #4 as your goal~it is truly a wonderful way to live.
Oh and in spite the pie not being a pumpkin pie (my super-dedooper favorite pie in all the world), I loved the zucchini pie and am thinking perhaps I better make one today with the remaining zucchini from my garden!
