Parm Crusted Tilapia + Pasta

20140416-193605.jpg

This might have not been the best crusted tilapia filet but it was hella good. I remember when I made it. The decision for moving to Orlando was still not made and thoughts were up in the air. As I take a break from typing for a few seconds, look to the left to the outdoors and take a breath of fresh air, it is bittersweet looking back to the moment when I made this dish. Thinking now about the unknown that I was living then without knowing of God’s plans and ideas for my future. I still may not be positive of what is to come of my life with God but I know that His plans are far better than the ones I once had for myself. I fully trust Him now like I have never trusted in Him before.

It is amazing to think about days where I had more worries than I do today. Days I did not trust in God to control my life in His own hands. Days where I thought I would never see the light at the end of the struggle. But, as I sit here enjoying the breeze and kicking back a bit, I realize how much I have as it relates to fulfillment in life. Forget the materialistic things that Bentley has eaten…huh what? Lol. I just have to look at my life in its entirety and how much spiritual joy I have where God has me.

Insane how looking back at a simple meal and its recipe can bring me to that place, right? Well, that is the joy of sharing love through cooking on this World Wide Web.
