In church today, we talked about friends and what a treasure they are in our lives. How each one brings a different kind of spice and joy to our life; the teacher likened them to cookies!
~Cookies And Friends~
They come in all shapes and sizes:
Some are soft and sugar coated,
Some are snappy and full of ginger,
And some are just plain nutty!!
We can treat ourselves to many different kinds,
And there is always room for one more!
The Savior of the world also spoke of treasures. In His Sermon on the Mount He declared:
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
To all my friends, know that you are always in my heart - you are my treasures!
I want to leave you with a wonderful cookie recipe - when you eat one, think of me, because I'll be thinking of you!
