I have been sitting at home alone all day because my family is at Mills' baseball tournament. Unfortunately I has to stay home because I had to be here when the telephone repair man gets here to fix our house phone. I have been here all day and I have had a lot of time to think. I got a little hungry so I went to Wal-Mart to buy some sugar cookie dough to make cookies. I was craving them, okay?
As I sit here eating these warm cookies, I had a thought. We eat cookies because we love them. We eat dough because we REALLY love it. The one time we don't enjoy the process of making cookies is when it is baking. There is a lot of uncertainty. We really want to make these the best cookies, but we don't have much control over that. We have to decide how long the cookies stay in, but the final result is always going to be a little different.
So yes, these are the things that I think about when I spend time alone. God's plan is a late night snack of cookies and milk. You like the idea in the beginning. You get nervous in the middle when you aren't in control. You make the best of it in the end and realize that life is better with cookies and milk AKA God's plan.
Hope you all make some cookies this week and don't forget the milk. That is something to be thankful for!
Southern and Thankful
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way.

I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
