Dessert is defined as: A sweet course, treat or dish; served after the main course.
As I was thinking about the holiday season and all of the desserts so many of us are going to consume; I was reminded of how dessert applies to our lives. It’s the sweet course or treat after life’s main courses. e.g.
- Main Course- Attending College Dessert- Obtaining Degree.
- Main Course- Becoming A Leader Dessert- Lessons Learned/Taught & Leaders Developed
- Main Course- Tithe and give generously Dessert- The floodgates of blessings
- Main Course- Struggles of life, darkness, insecurity, sin… Dessert- Truth, life, grace and forgiveness through Christ.
It’s essential for us to always be mindful and thankful that even though the “main courses in life” may not always taste great or be our favorite dish, there is always opportunity for dessert. Remember you also have the freedom of choice as it pertains to what you consume, nonetheless always be thankful. “We would worry less if we praised more. Thanksgiving is the enemy of discontent and dissatisfaction.” ~Harry Ironside
Don’t sweat the small stuff and don’t be stressed; instead take stressed and flip it backwards.
The Desserts of Life.
For those that still may not understand the title of this post… spell stressed backwards. 🙂
Thanksgiving is really not only about the dessert; however it’s sure a nice finality to the time with food, family and friends.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
