Turning Worry into WONDER BREAD!



Our preacher at church (Jimmy) has deemed this year, the year we turn worry into wonder. Instead of having fear rule your life, have faith and curiosity about your circumstances. This is hard to do, especially under very trying circumstances. Still I love the idea of it and what it represents.

We showed up to church last Sunday after hearing all the bad news mentioned in my earlier post, and were shocked at what was handed out to the church members. Wonder Bread. That's right. Well, apparently they don't make wonder bread anymore so they had a bakery make fresh bread and made their own "wonder" labels.

This was such a wacky yet magical thing they did. It just warmed our hearts, leaving with our own loaf of wonder bread! Jimmy had called one bakery in LA to do the job and said "Hi, we have this funky little church and we're thinking of making our own "Wonder Bread", I know it sounds a little crazy..." That's when they guy on the phone said: "I know that church! I was there last week! I love it!"

Well, I guess that's how things work when God's involved! Our church is pretty small...it's amazing he'd been there!

Do you have a worry into wonder story?

This is such a great message and something I'm trying to work on this year. I know that through faith all things are possible, now if I could just stop that worrying thing. Hope you've had a great weekend!

You want our worry into wonder stories??? I think this might be a fun weekly post...like Worry Into Wonder Wednesday...if you want a story say the word, my family is the poster child for "Worry Into Wonder". God has been so good to me, my life is a testament to His grace.

There is a Wonder Bread plant in our town and I drive by it twice a week - it gives off this WONDERful smell - the kind that makes you want to go and buy a loaf and eat it all.

Where do I begin?? There have been so many times when I find myself amazed at God's abundant grace. The most recent example has been during the past two weeks when DH and the two Sweet Pea boys have had the flu/croup/ear infections, and the hospital stay on the infectious disease floor. I started worrying, "who will take care of the boys when I get sick?" just assuming I would be the next to fall (I usually am the first to get sick). God amazed me by keeping me healthy, and keeping my attitude strong and positive. Wonder-full!
