If you read my Good Morning Mondays post this week you would know that my friend and I visited another friend who had just had a baby.
Now when we do this we like to take something for them, maybe a meal or two.
I was a bit short of time and money this week and wondered what to do. I really wanted to take something but I was pretty sure that it wouldn’t really be enough.
I made up some bread dough and made some corn relish (compliments of our daughter) scrolls. I even had to use the last half packet of cream cheese because I didn’t have any other cheese and what is a savory scroll without cheese!!!
They did look good and I packed them into a container to take down.
Now my friend is very gracious and was thankful for everything that we brought them, and I got a very special text message later that evening and I will share some of it with you.
“Hey there beautiful friend, what a lovely treat to have you and (my other friend) and the children visit today. I love you so much and am so grateful to have you as my friend. We have all just enjoyed your scrolls in the car”.
Our friends were heading to family for the weekend and had a 4 hour drive ahead of them before they got there. They have 10 children and would have been busy packing and getting ready and my scrolls were just what they needed for tea to eat on the way.
Sometimes we think that what we have to give is never enough or good enough but this has really made me realise that it isn’t about that. God used what I had given them to make their trip easier and He knew that scrolls were just what they needed.
I am encouraged now to just do it and give and not worry about the circumstances but just let God manage them.
2 Corinthians 9:7 – Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, [so let him give]; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
