My mom bakes a lot and I still think it’s amazing how she could tell that her cake is ready to come out of the oven by simply smelling and looking at it. Yes. She doesn’t use a timer or alarm of some sort. It never works for me though. That’s why this wee thing that was given to me as a Christmas present last year proved very helpful in my baking adventures.
Meet Mr. Chef.
Twist his bottom and stop at the mark that says how long you want him ticking. Then he’ll definitely get your attention by screaming at you so loud (without fail) when time is up – just letting you know that you have to decide whether or not you want to burn your cake. As you can see, he doesn’t look very happy (as he never smiles) but I can attest he’s doing his job pretty well. And because of that I want to give him recognition by posting this photo of him sitting on our ancestral oven that’s probably older than my parents.
Mr. Chef is really cool. And I realized I am blessed with cool people similar to him that gives me prompts when I’m about to overdo something in my life. They don’t wear hats but they are sure to shout at me (in a gentle and nice way) when they know I have to stop and rethink things before I make big decisions that may hurt or disappoint me. They are called family and true friends (real friends who genuinely care for me).
But there is someone even way cooler than Mr. Chef, family and true friends. His name is Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. He provides me not just reminders and warnings but also guidance and wisdom that I may be able to lead a fulfilling life. To Him I lift all my prayers and I do all things to glorify His name.
