Why do I care? I care because these gals are part of my writing family at The Writers’ Nest. We share manuscripts at our meetings but more than that, we laugh, cry, visit and encourage one another. Congratulations one and all!!
Blogger Belinda Burston is a great fan of Victoria Sandwich Cake . So here is the question for you today. What is your favourite cake or for that matter your favourite sandwich? Share won’t you?
The Message Bible offers up 25 verses including the word sandwich. The Amplified Bible lists 40 verses mentioning cakes, every kind from barley to date and raisin but no sandwiches !
1 Chronicles 16:3
And he distributed to everyone of Israel, both man and woman, to everyone a loaf of bread, a portion of meat, and a cake of raisins.
As a follower of Belinda’s blog (Whatever He says) I feel like I know her family. Her Mom has been in poor health for quite a while and she just passed into the arms of Jesus. Two lines from her last blog caught my attention.
The first from a beloved Grandaughter
‘”It’s Uncle Bob,” she says, between her soft sobs, “Omie has died.”
The next from Belinda’s brother, Rob who was with Mum when she passed.The kindnesses of the nurses comforted him. He said. How sweet kindness feels to a heart that is laid raw.
What a profound statement. I understand that so well because of the many kindnesses to me over this past few months.
So if you will…pray comfort and peace for the family. Pray that their raw hearts will begin to experience the tender healing of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen
Belinda’s Blog -Whatever He says…is one of the best…not preachy, not cloyingly sweet..
I hope you will vote for her in the blog contest explained below…Hugs and thanks!!!
