Faith is a funny thing. When times like this comes along, is there anything else you can do but to have faith? I’m a realist. I like doing things. Doing things makes me feel good. It makes me feel productive as something is being done to correct or improve on the situation. It can also be linked to the percieved sense of control-afterall, u feel like u are in control of a situation when you are doing something about it right?
I learned a lesson last night. I learned that you have to do your best but there are things beyond your control. I can put in all the hours of work, put on the best smile, approach as many people as I can but that’s all I can do. I can’t drag people in nor threaten them.
As a clinician, people might find this entry strange. I mean, I believe in using best practice interventions but here am i talking about FAITH? A word that is not tangible.
As a Christian, I know about Faith. In moments of despair, faith can be most powerful. There is no doubt in my mind that faith and hope works. However, it is also in moments of despair that you start to doubt faith as well.
It is only when faith sets in that things start happening.
Last night’s lesson was timely. It reminded me of who I am and the reasons I’m doing this.
Anyway, to change the topic a little…. I have been baking lots. In fact, as I’m typing this, I’m planning to make Cheese and Cornflakes cookies tonight, if not tomorrow.
Here are some of my bakes n cooks:
Sour Cream Coffee Slice- This turned out better than expected. The slice was moist and lovely to have with a cup of coffee. ;p
Walnut Crumble Cheesecake. The bitterness of dark chocolate, brown sugar and walnut crumbs made this unique. I will definitely try this recipe again although I might add more cheese the next time round.
Almond cake. It was supposed to be a slice but it turned out like a cake! Maybe a cake slice? LoL
That was one of our dinners. First dish I cooked for dinner in 3 months. It was Ham and mushroom pasta with creamy brandy sauce. Don’t ask me how I came up with that, I just did on the spur of the moment.
Enough for now.. I’m going Back to the kitchen =)
