And you know what - it was absolutely the BEST carrot cake I have ever made or eaten!
It REALLY was!
Yes...I had to literally scrape it out of the pans, but when it was pried loose it was just delectable.
And it was a good reminder to me that even the best laid plans, though they may not go the way we hoped, can be made good and maybe even better than we imagined.
Just as God promises us - when bad things happen, He can use them to accomplish good... and even sweet and rich adventures in our lives.
