A Red Cake for a Strong Woman

For her milestone birthday she crafted for herself (no one else could do a better job) an exquisite red cake with black trims topped with fresh red roses. The insides are made of rich chocolate mud cake lavishly finished with semi-sweet dark chocolate ganache for added decadence.

It had to be RED!

There is no other colour that best describes my dear wife Cherry Bel. She is a beautiful, multi-talented, creative, artistic, highly intelligent, passionate, caring, loving and most definitely strong woman.

She could have had any job she chooses. She could have her own business if she so desired. But she chose to stay home to bring up our children. A choice some found too confronting. A choice she’s been made to question the wisdom of. But it is a choice I will be eternally grateful for and with certainty so will our children.

So here’s to you my dearest Cherry Bel! “Her children rise up and call her blessed and her husband boasts of and praises her…” (Proverbs 31:28). Indeed! Life is just beginning…! God is not finished with you yet…!
