See that beautiful woman with me in my profile picture? That's my Grandma. And yesterday, her children, grandchildren and most of her great grandchildren, along with her brother, sister-in-law and friends, celebrated her 93 years of the life that God has granted her thus far on this earth.
You'll have to forgive me as I have tears pouring down my face as I type this post. She's the one my love for cake decorating is dedicated to. She's the one who has inspired me to use my creativity with buttercream and baking and give it all back to the glory of the Lord. She's the one who looked at me yesterday as I was sharing with her my new business venture and said, "see, I knew you could do it!" :) My Grandma loves the Lord, she loves her family, she is dedicated to the service of God and of others. She is blessed. And we are beyond blessed to be part of the plan that God has for her.
The cake I baked for her this year wasn't elaborate, it wasn't large, and awe-inspiring. But it was filled with about as much love and prayer as I could possibly pour into it. A prayer that I can continue to create and build a legacy such as she has for our family, and give it all back......to the glory of the Lord.
