Nod to Chocolate Cake

This is a plate.  This is the space for chocolate cake.  This is the space where emotion meets food.  The texture with the tears… the sweetness with the happiness.

Throughout Clinical Pastoral Education, seminary and, now, ministry, chocolate cake becomes my delight when the world seems wrong or sad.  It’s my stone when the day is dreary.  It’s where I see the smoothness and richness of God’s hand beyond the melancholy.  My head swims with every bite of this cake.  And the day turns around when I take this plate, thank God for this day, thank God for this cake.  I devour the cake, and only crumbs remind me of the painful remnants of the day.
