Through my years on the planet and the various struggles that come along with existence, I have found great comfort in a "God" or a "higher power" that is bigger than me and any of my brilliant ideas as to what my life should be like.
I have had a very hard time communicating with some Godly force that I can't see or feel or touch (or ingest), and thus, it was suggested that I pick something that symbolizes God for me. I jokingly replied, "a perfect cupcake".
This instantly came to mind because I was recently at a gorgeous cupcake boutique and the simple treats, presented carefully and adorably, made me so incredibly happy I honestly felt like anything was possible. These little confections made me want to be a better writer, wife, sister, daughter, friend and person. They made me want to create some beauty in the world.
Why my God is a perfect cupcake:
It's made with love and care
It's made to bring smiles and pleasure
It inspires reverence and even possible worship
It requires patience, learning and a bit of faith to create
Who/What/Where is your God?
