Grandma and the Cake

This is a story submitted to Home Instead Senior Care by a client. With her permission, we would like to post this story for your enjoyment!


“A little boy is telling his Grandma how “everything” is going wrong. He tells her that it rained last weekend during his birthday party, how he lost the baseball game, and that nothing seems fair, etc… Meanwhile, Grandma is baking a cake.

She asks her grandson if he would like a snack, which of course he does. “Here, have some cooking  oil.”

“Yuck,” says the boy.

“How about a couple of raw eggs?”

“Gross, Grandma!”

“Would you like some flour then? Or maybe baking soda?”

“Grandma, those are all really yucky!” To which Grandma replied: “Yes, all those things seem bad all by themselves. But when they are put together in the right way,they make a wonderfully delicious cake! God works the same way. Many times we wonder why he would let us go through such bad and difficult times. But God knows that when He puts these things all in order, they always work for good!”
