This is the time of year when our snow-bird neighbors return from Florida, so I have been baking once again to welcome them home. We have welcomed two sets of neighbors home with cookies, which gives us a chance to chat.
The most fun story comes from our sharing cookies with Joshua's friends though. Last night Joshua was playing in the front yard with some of his friends, and I took out a plate of cookies for them to snack on. They went on about how yummy they were; and the next thing I knew, they were all at my kitchen door telling me their birthdays so that I could make them cookies for their birthdays. We laughed about it and shared with my parents what had happened, and that's when my mom texted and told me that the night before in Bible study they had specifically prayed for God to use my cookies to open doors with our neighbors. What a blessing and encouragement to see such a specific answer to prayer!
