Roll the dough

Last night was a great hard working night for me – I left work a little after 4:30 pm to head to my “second job” – my church. The night was all about frying apple pies for our missions team to raise funds to go to Honduras. We started the night out with a spaghetti dinner together and after we cleaned up from that we started to work. I had the fortunate job of being a dough roller – I can tell you that my arms are truly sore this morning from helping to roll so many pies. All together last night we fixed a little over 500 pies.

I have to tell you though, making those pies was such a wonderful time for me. Even though we were working, it was relaxing (at least on the mental side). I just stood there and rolled the dough, I didn’t have to concentrate, I didn’t think about everything that was on my to do list undo at work or my to do list at home that’s every growing. I just rolled the dough, and thought about nothing, and I, yes I had peace.

I’m so glad that God gives us these little moments. Quiet rest if you will for the weary tired, overworked, under appreciated, self-esteem lacking soul! It gave me time to breath. Time to just relax and have conversation with a friend, and to remember some friends that have already crossed to glory.
I’m thankful that last night while all that surrounds us seems to be questionable at best these days, all I had to do last night was…..roll the dough.


The inner thoughts keep on screaming!
