A Cakeheads Collaboration of Joy!

It's true that we've never before witnessed the likes of what has taken place across our world in these past couple of months.

No matter anyone's view on what has been happening in these unprecedented times, it has been scary in different ways for just about everyone.  For some, it has been nothing short of devastating.

Finding joy in this situation we've been thrust into has not been easy for many of us.

But "not easy" does not mean impossible.

And we can't truly live without joy.  We weren't designed that way.

Sometimes we need a little help to find it when our pain eclipses the strength we have left to keep looking for it,
And I truly believe that God sends us a steady stream of that help when we need it most.

It matters to Him that we find it.

Sometimes we see it, grab hold of it and hang onto it with all that we have, knowing that if we don't, we probably won't make it through to the end.

And sometimes we push it away, too angry to want to heal and too broken to want to be fixed.  

It's no one's fault.

Regardless, to embrace the joy that's there or reject it is a choice we'll have to continuously make.

Joy can be found in so many places.

We, the members of the Cakeheads family, often find joy in "creating" and cake is most often our canvas.

Parties have been cancelled.  Cakes orders have been put on hold.

So, those of us who were able, thought it might be a really good time to create something that reminds us of "joy", even if in just the simplest, smallest way...

hoping to grab hold of some of it ourselves in the process, and maybe even pass on a little bit of it to others by sharing what we've created with the world.

So I'm sharing the photos of what some of us have created with you here.

We hope that you enjoy looking at them... and we hope that the joy around you these next couple of months will be so plentiful that you'll be practically tripping over it at every turn.

(Just be careful where you walk.  I don't want to be responsible for stubbed toes or twisted ankles...even if you ARE smiling on the way down. :) Xx

My cake was inspired by an AmandaGreenwoodArt painting.
