Rhema. The revelation word. A-ha moments – they happen every day. Simple statements filled with deep insights which cause one to take pause and reflect. So it was that a colleague and I were chatting, at the coffee machine. Discussing the vagaries of life and its imminent changes. I said to him, something about ‘ hoping for the best but planning for the worst case’, to which he responded ‘ Truth is, it’s not the worst case scenario that’s the problem, it’s the unexpected.’ The one event you didn’t, couldn’t plan for….that’s the issue. And it’s true. I mean take thick mist on a bright Spring morning – how unexpected is that? Beautiful but in my tropical mind…unexpected. I have had my recent share of those – some captured in this post and others….will reveal themselves in the future. However, when I first saw Penny of Jeroxie’s IIP cake pops party, I signed up immediately. I knew exactly what I was going to make…..a sneaky chocolately cake pop, riding on the coat tails of Easter eggs, lamingtons and ‘chocolate’ scotch eggs. I worked myself into a frenzy that I forgot the essentials like – lollipop sticks, frosting for the cake, and other ‘long-lead’ items which I could have thought of much sooner.
