Get your Cake and Eat it too...Words of my Heart by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

They found an Egyptian in a field and brought him to David. They gave him water to drink and food to eat—  part of a cake of pressed figs and two cakes of raisins. He ate and was revived, for he had not eaten any food or drunk any water for three days and three nights.  1 Samuel 30:11-12

I noticed in the bible that when the word 'cake' comes up it is referencing raisin cakes.  There are many raisin cake recipes out on the interent but I chose to try an all vegan one.

Truthfully Terry was not in for 'loving it.  It reminded me of a pumpkin bread or banana bread, not real sweet but the glaze brought a bit of sweetness. The glaze was made with pure maple syrup. Had the grandchildren been here they would have gulped it down with pleasure. They are always more open to something when it is primed with a bit of sweetness.

God offers us so much more... primed with His pure love for us.  Too often we are not 'in' for it and we are off going our own direction.  God is offering us our 'cake' and the ability to eat it too.  Might be worth consideration. Are you hungry?
