TRIPLE LAYERED APPLE BREAKFAST SANDWICH

October 15, 2013

Every now and then, there’s news that humbles you with the frailty of life. Disease and death is part of the world since man’s rebellion against God. But the sovereign, perfect, and good Father works all these things together for the salvation of those who are his children.

A couple times this past weekend, I felt the harsh sadness that comes with thoughts of death. Or all types of pain in life. And I have a bad knack for worrying too much about things happening to David. And about my own health. One small example: I have detached retinas in both my eyes – certainly not fatal, but something I’ve dealt with for a couple years and had surgery for. It normally doesn’t happen to a young person. It is likely at some point I will go blind in one or both eyes. The thought of that can really get me wrapped up in myself. Feeling pity for me and anger at God. And yet, who am I to shake my fists at him? To say I deserve better? What ever my portion is in this brief life, I trust our loving and all-knowing God brought me to it to grow me. He will preserve me through this life and into eternity.

So we do not lose heart. Though out outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

    I love your recipes! I’ve struggled some, too, about death and disease, especially mine. (I have Late Stage Lyme disease) Oddly enough, I found comfort in the movie Spinal Tap, when one character is asked to compose his own epitaph. ” Here lies David St. Hubbins… and why not? ” The “and why not?” made me think about all the other people who are in the same boat, only with different problems and worries. Why should I be any different, or seek to escape the burden I’ m carrying? God didn’t say that we will be worry-free or won’t suffer from the many problems of living on this earth, many of which are the results of our or others’ actions. He said He would be there with us at the time of our sorrow and bitter trial, and He would walk with us through the Valley of Death. And also that He is there to lighten the load. I’ve found comfort in the writing of many great saints, and currently in the writings of Anne Lamott, whose recent quote has haunted me, and forced me to think about the world around me, and my relationship to it. From her recent blog post, ” Earth is forgiveness school.” Such a short sentence, but so much is in it. I think this is one of the concepts that make up a part of the of the path we as believers are asked to traverse. Matthew 7:13-14

    WOW. I can’t even put words to how much your post resonated with me today. ALL week I’ve been weighed by worry and thinking about potential loss and sadness that is bound to come in life at some point, even if not in the immediate future. (Totally can relate on how you worry about things happening to your husband, too. It’s nice to know I’m not alone on this.) Thank you for your wise words and reminder that this life is nothing compared to the one that awaits us!

    • Rachel Schultz

      That’s really wonderful to hear, Grace! Thanks so much.

  • Laura

    1. Thanks for this encouraging post! I needed a reminder of God’s sovereignty today. He surely is good, even when we’re so wrapped up in ourselves that we can’t see it.
    2. That breakfast sandwich looks amazing.

    • Rachel Schultz

      Thanks Laura! So happy to hear.

  • Oh my gosh, I had detached retinas in both my eyes too!!!! I had surgery three years ago, crazy! I”m so glad your surgery was successful too!

    • Rachel Schultz

      Wow! We must discuss this soon.
