Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Christmas Cookie Decorators!

Christmas Cookie Decorating is very serious business around here.
We started a tradition about 30 years ago, with a special Dutch Cookie Recipe.
We were too poor for ornaments to hang on our tree, so we baked cookies
with hooks in them, and hung them!

One of my favorite memories was when our youngest Son, Marcus, found out the ornaments tasted really good! He licked all the ones he could reach, and we got ANTS~!
It was so funny seeing him bending over and licking those cookies, thinking nobody had seen him.

So the tradition has continued through the years, and now we have a new group of cookie decorators. :)
