Something Smells Wonderful!

What's your favorite smell? Among my favorite smells in the world are hamburgers on the grill, pot roast, popcorn, and anything with cinnamon or chocolate in the oven. As I write this, I have brownies baking, a rare event for me now, because company's coming! That's my idea of real fun. Nothing I love better than having friends and family visit. Our house smells fantastic!
One of the things I love most about God, is that He loves a party, too! A big party, where everyone is invited! The food and wine are the best there is. Remember Jesus at the wedding at Cana where he turned a crisis into the most memorable party anyone had ever attended? My guess is that it was a family wedding, as Mary assumed responsibility for the problem when the wine jog ran dry. She instructs the servants to "Do whatever He tells you." (John 2:5) Good advice.
Today I read in John chapter 6 about another crisis involving a massive crowd that didn't want to go home, and they were all hungry. The disciples were running the numbers to see how much it would cost to feed them. Until a little boy offered Jesus his lunch.
The Host of Heaven invited them all to sit down on the grass. Then He held the 5 small loves and 2 fishes high and thanked His Father for the food. You know the end of the story, I'm sure. No one went home hungry. In fact, there were 12 baskets of leftovers. Amazing.
Why do we ever doubt God will provide what we need?
Gotta run. I smell a party coming on!
Have a happy day,
