Dinner guests…..

When you invite others over for dinner, you never know what to expect.  Will they like what you prepare?  Will the conversation go smoothly?  Will everyone have a good time?

Today I felt pretty confident about the food for my guests since I asked the woman what she suggested and she had specific ideas.

At first I felt a little flustered as I could not find the recipe, but eventually I did locate and I was happy to have my memory jogged.  Once I read the recipe I remembered it from another time.  I decided to make a specific salad I liked.  I wondered about that too as I had made it at home and it did not go over very positively.  One person did not like the dressing and the other did not like the salad, but I decided to take a chance anyway.  The dessert was easy as it was a request too and one I have made many, many times.

I was serving salmon and I also had halibut.  I wanted a quick and easy recipe for the halibut and I called a friend, but did not hear from her.  With time fleeting, I called back and she gave me a great recipe which I quickly put together.

At the end of the evening, I was very happy.  All of the food was a big hit and I was thankful things had turned out well.

I am sure I should have been more trusting.  It’s not like I am a novice cook, but I just wanted things to go well and I think that made me more concerned.  I need to learn to be more trusting in even the little things in my life.  I tend to be able to handle the big things, but it is the little ones that trip me up.  I will keep this in my memory and remember it when I start to question the little things.  God is always faithful.  I know this well.

Father, thank you for always taking care of every little detail.  Help me to be more trusting.  Amen.
