It was an afternoon for baking at our house today! The men’s Bible study at church was starting up tonight and Bill asked me if I could make a snack for them to have. So I made up some Apple Bars for them! ♥
While they were in the oven baking, Abbie and I made up some chocolate chip cookie dough. A man at our church is involved in a prison ministry, and in addition to their regular work there, two times a year they have a major outreach at the facility. They will need hundreds of dozens of homebaked cookies! They like to have cookies baked with love…and covered with prayer! ♥ They will be taken to the prison and given out to the prisoners and staff. So we baked the chocolate chip cookies today ~ and tomorrow we are planning on making some peanut butter cookies. This is the first time we have made cookies for this ~ and it was a joy to do it and to be able to pray together that the Lord will touch the lives of whoever receives the cookies we made! I just love the practical things we can do to make a difference from right here at home! I pray our cookies will make a difference for His glory! ♥
“Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them…”
Hebrews 13:3a (ESV)
I hope you all have enjoyed a lovely day! Mine was especially sweet! ♥ I was reminded once again what a special gift “today” is!
“The LORD bless you and keep you, the LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you, the LORD lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.”
♥ Blessings to you dear friends! ♥
