"The deepest spiritual lessons are not learned by His letting us have our way in the end, but by His making us wait, bearing with us in love and patience until we are able honestly to pray what He taught His disciples to pray:

'Thy Will Be Done'."

desert vs dessert

when i was a kid, i learned a lot of fun ways to remember how to spell things...for instance, NECESSARY is Norman Eats Candy, Eggs, Sardine Sandwiches and Raw Yolks (gross)....SEPARATE- you always want to be sepArate from A RAT (get it?)....
a lot of spelling i learned from cheerleading too...i will never forget how to spell PSYCHED, AGGRESSIVE, or SUCCESS...ever!
the way i remember the difference between desert and dessert is the secret found in the s's...
the one with two s's is the one you usually want MORE of....DESSERT...yummy, chocolate, delicious.....frosting....mmMMMmmm....(ok, fatty, get back to your post...)
anyways, i thought today about how that's how we are in life....we are always looking more for DeSSert...the good and usually temporary things in life....not realizing that sometimes the dry, DeSert parts of our life are equally, if not MORE, important because they produce things that are lasting!!

if you are going through a deSert time, remember... "tested faith produces endurance, maturity and God's rich reward". (also, check out this song)

.....and God's RICH reward will be better than chocolate!

that's so funny! that's how i remember it too! : )
good point about life though. when i came across your gblog, the description really made me think. thank you for posting something so intense right at the top. i will be considering the personal applications of those statements for a while.
