Can we all agree that people are funny about their food? From infancy on, everyone has their favorite foods and flavors; people like or dislike foods for a variety of reasons. Most of those reasons make no sense to any one but the holder of the reason!
Little kids don't like bread crusts. Some family members 'fight' over the 'heels' of every loaf! Kids are notorious for not liking vegetables; husbands want the food their new brides prepare to look and taste like the husband's mother's dishes. The list goes on and on.
Over lunch today the Normanator and I mused that we are blessed to have food. When we say grace before a meal, WE MEAN IT. Not that our menus are all that outstanding - today we had creamed cabbage with leftover spaghetti and we sopped up the tomato sauce with warm, moist pita bread. As if that were not feast enough, we celebrated the meal with dessert: home canned applesauce, topped with a sprinkle of cinnamon! What could be tastier in the middle of a sunny day?
There was an abundance of bread, so I offered to share it with someone I know is in need. Serious need...turn-your-power-off-tomorrow need. She lit a cigarette and cocked her head as she told me that she doesn't LIKE that kind of bread. She would prefer to have CHEESE.
I do not share this anecdote with you for purposes of judgment; it is meant as an observation. It is a clear picture of what FREE WILL is all about.
But I did take a lesson from this. As I left this needy woman I heard a voice in my head from my past. Someone I admired admonished me to "ALWAYS accept what the Universe offers you, even if it does not look the way you think it should." If you don't accept, you literally turn off the flow of abundance and prosperity that is meant to come to you.
You could think of it the way you think of water pipes. If you turn the faucet off and beg for water, it won't arrive. YOU MUST TURN ON THE FAUCET TO RECEIVE THE WATER. It's the same with our abundance. We need to open the gates and allow it all to come to us.
It's all right. That bread has been crushed into crumbs and it will got into a variety of meals: meat loaves, casseroles, even croutons for soups. I have a notion to invite the needy lady who doesn't like that kind of bread to come by and share a meal...
Meantime I shall thank my lucky stars and count my many blessings.
