The other day I ordered groceries and went to pick them up in lieu of shopping in a crowded store, likely with people not respecting boundaries – particularly in preparation for the long weekend. I had planned on trying a new recipe for a cauliflower salad. However, in my groceries, there were 2 ingredients omitted – cucumber and mint. I asked my son if he would be going to the store in the next couple of days. He said he was debating as he would be in need of bananas. We carried on about how awful it is to be so stressed trying to decide whether or not to go to the grocery store for a couple of items and agreed to let each other know if we would venture out. Today I decided to look up other recipes to see if I could find an alternative. I did find one that sounded good and I had everything I needed – except bacon. I thought my son might have some and he did. I told him I would trade him some bananas that I had for some bacon. It was a deal. Our burden had been lifted, decision had been made. We both got what we needed through creative problem solving and had a good laugh.
I Found God today creatively and somewhat humorously solving a problem.
