We Can Be a Funnel Cake…

I usually go to fairs & festivals for their food more than anything else (can I get an “amen!”) and my favorite classic fair food is the funnel cake. The batter is literally dumped through a funnel into hot grease which is how it gets its name. As soon as it turns golden and flaky, it is placed on a plate and sprinkled with an endless amount of powered sugar. Much like funnel cake, we go through times of pressure and change our “form.” Our ideas, thoughts, decisions, lifestyle, and habits may change dramatically because of a situation that has caused tension and pressure on our lives. It could be a horrible grade at school, not making a team, a loved one passing away, a diagnosis of some sort, being fired from a job, a relationship ending…these are all examples of being dumped into hot grease for awhile to change us. Life interruptions tend to move us out of our typical, everyday lives to a big adjustment whether it is forever or temporary. We usually don’t understand them when they happen out of the blue, but in a few days, months, or even years, we begin to see why those times of pressure happened. Sometimes, God never reveals to us why some things happen. But, y’all, if you were to reflect on your life a few years ago, how have you changed? What situations made you change into who you are now? I bet they were those “hot grease” type of situations. Did you migrate towards God or did you run away? What did you learn? God never said He wouldn’t give us too much to handle on our own because He wants us to lean on Him during those times so He can handle them for us. The next time you feel like funnel cake batter, look ahead to what the end result will be…more beauty & wisdom sprinkled on your soul. 😉

Hey, y'all! I'm Emily, a simple country girl with a BIG love for the Lord, coffee, sunflowers, cooking, and gardening. I graduated from college one year ago in Secondary Agricultural Education, and I am now fulfilling my dream of teaching agriculture to high school and middle school students while also teaching science in the mix. I am happily married to my college sweetheart, Brad, who doubles as my ag teaching partner! We are newly weds, so we are just getting around to starting a farm. As we add animals to the Cooper Fam and complete projects, y'all will be the first ones to know. :) Tator is our sweet Goldendoodle puppy that we consider to be our first child, and he keeps us on our toes all the time. Between the demands of teaching and life, I enjoy writing and encouraging others in their walk with the Lord sticking tidbits of what I experience along this journey in my writing. I hope that you will follow along and that this blog will help your faith grow longer than a country mile!
