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.
