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.
