  • Cookies were in order for a recent event Bob and I attended, and I was designated to either buy or make them.

    It was for a very special meeting and I was told not to go out of my way to make the cookies. Well, many of you know me, I just cannot let a special meeting happen with store bought cookies. (Although, I can still remember those chocolate covered marshmallow cookies my father would buy; they were so good. Making cookies is like therapy for me, well, actually any kind of baking is therapy for me. Therefore, I was on for the challenge of baking at least 100 cookies.

  • I was asked to attend a men’s prayer breakfast a few weeks ago, and the study in God’s word was from Matthew 7, “Judge not that you be not judged.”

    For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. After the Scripture was read, there were several comments from those attending, including me. After the meeting concluded and I was driving back home, I believe the Lord asked me how I was doing in keeping this word of His. I had to admit, not so good at times.
