Okay, so I know that God likes to get me (and all of us) out of our comfort zone! Well, today he has done a doozy on me and so now I am sitting here trying to process what I have to do...let me explain!
I am going to a wedding on Saturday (which a couple of weeks ago I asked for prayer about it). It's a BIG wedding in terms of guests, food, etc. and probably going to be different from any wedding I've ever been too (a good different). There are going to be many unsaved people there, so please pray that God will be glorified during the day, and that those who don't know Him will see something in us that they are looking for and needing.
I have made the wedding cake...it's a "dummy" cake in that it is all fake. Since there are so many other desserts that are being made, the bride's mother (who is in charge of the cake) decided that no real cake was needed. Now the bride would like cake and I've been asked to make a BIG sheet cake.
Now for some cake decorators, that would be no problem. But I've never yet done a big cake like this, plus it will be a double layer cake (that's more cake, more work, more things to go wrong) and I have until Saturday morning.
I am just about freaking out about this, but I know that I can (and will!) do this...it's just pulled me out of my comfort zone and the devil is trying to tell me everything that can go wrong! I also have another cake to be done for Friday, and this is something else new to me...having more than one order at once. Since I started this business last year, I've had cakes here and there, but never two on the same day or weekend! While I am SO thankful that business is picking up, it tends to scare me a little because again, the devil tries to scare me.
So...please pray for me...that I would be able to get the cakes dones, with no mishaps, and that I can have peace and calm while making these cakes. My heart rate seems to be slowing down a bit just by sharing this with all of you! :0)
I feel like a bird learning how to fly that has just been pushed out of the nest by its parents!
Thank you for your prayer support...I will post pictures after the wedding so that you can see how the cakes turned out!
