prep time

Holy Family asked SFC to help out at their annual "Mass on the Grass" event.  This year, they served sausages instead burgers.  In order to be efficient, they figured we should cook the sausages for a little bit first so then when it comes to the actual post-mass picnic, they can just toss them on the grill and be done in half the time.  That said, a handful of SFC guys and I came in early to cook the sausages.  When I say "came in early to cook" I actually mean I was there the last half hour of prepping the sausages.  They did 98% of the work haha (good job!).  Anyway, there were about 1,000 sausages to cook so they were at it for a few hours.  To some it may not make sense, but if you ask me, that was a good idea.

God does that to us too.  He does things to help prep us, so when it's time and He's ready to serve us...the process goes by a bit faster.  We aren't undercooked slash unprepared for that moment.  We can never be over prepared, but maybe if we anticipate too much, that is the equivalent to being burned.  It makes some sense.  God allows things to slowly happen to just prepare us.  It might not be as quick nor have a result that we want (right away), but He's preparing us for that right moment and just like all the sausages we pre-cooked today, we will be ready.

What's #30daysofmystagogia?  You can refer back to my blog on "About Time" to understand the meaning behind all of this.
