4. Challenge Lasagna

I have always loved Shrek.  “Onions have layers…cakes have layers…You know what else everybody likes?  Parfaits!… Parfaits are delicious…”  Layers.

Michele-Stowell-Challenge-Lasagna-BlogWhen I mentioned Challenge Lasagna to Christine, she reminded me that I have always loved Shrek.  “Onions have layers…cakes have layers…You know what else everybody likes?  Parfaits!… Parfaits are delicious…”  Layers.

For some reason, my mind is on main dishes. No one has just one lasagna noodle right now.  The challenges are piled on.  Noodles, sauce, cheeses, repeat.  We’re all in a challenge lasagna, or a challenge parfait if you are like Donkey, and that’s what you like best.  

There is beauty behind it all, each piece.  The release into control-less-ness.  If we point our internal vision to the incredible gifts, the lack of control seems to be a part of the gift.
