Cookie Day

Today’s post will be brief. I just came home from a meeting at church where we were served warm, fresh-baked cookies (sadly, not vegan, but I ate two anyway) at the end of the event.

The cookies were flawless – symmetrical, chewy – not crunchy – and did I mention warm? As in right out of the oven?

I know that I usually deal with heftier spiritual matters on this blog, but today, I’m all about the unexpected delight I experienced by the arrival of these cookies.

I love how God is in the small things. What better way to end the day than with a warm chocolate chip cookie? Suddenly, the cares of the world melt away as I savored each bite – and I believe that the Lord wants us to live each day like it’s Cookie Day (celebrating the small delights that come our way). 

Note that I am not recommending eating cookies everyday – that would be unwise. I suppose I am suggesting that we celebrate life a bit more, and take time to really enjoy the good things that God sends to us.

Dear Lord, thank You so much for the kind-hearted volunteer who baked all of the cookies for everyone (200+ people?) at the meeting tonight. Thanks also for the reminder that You are still very much in the “surprise and delight” business – especially, how important it is for us to really enjoy the blessings of any size that You send our way – especially cookies! In Your name I pray, Amen.

  1. Wowwww! This REALLY made me smile! I do this all the time-I have begun to see God in every single small delight! This is such a good thing because it just reminds us that EVERY good thing comes from the Lord. Whether its something as small as a warm chocolate chip cookie, the feeling of a cool breeze brushing against your face, or the warmth of the sun soothing your skin; EVERY thing good comes from the Lord!….Man, you’ve got great writing skills! Keep it up!

  2. Cookies are a blessing :):):) who didn’t know I was going to say that 😉 but it’s true. God loves to give us hugs and kisses all through the day. He loves to see the surprise in our spirits when he gives us small and large. He is the most loving Father anywhere, ever.

    1. I eat my cookies a la carte. I’m lactose intolerant, but I suppose I could try dipping the cookie and almomd milk and see how that tastes… you may be onto something!

      You are right – I am noticing that I enjoy the simpler things more as I get older. 🙂
