With a spill of flour on the counter and floor, I started my baking. The outdoor temperature was perfect at 76, so I opened the windows and doors and let the breeze in. I put in my favorite Adele CD and decided I would make a pecan pie first.
I “owed” many friends and neighbors. The pecan pie was a thank you for a friend who had saved us from a painting disaster. The breads were for neighbors and a recent widower. The cinnamon rolls were for a neighbor and for another friend who needed some support. That day I was in the rhythm of baking. Each step flowed into the next until I was finished. What rhythm is God adding into your life today?
