I should have known chocolate chip cookies could be a spiritual experience.  I mean, they are glorious in pretty much every way.

So today, I made cookies.  Chocolate chip cookies.  They are delicious and warm right now, filling the house with that Taste of Home smell.  And I'm also sending them away, today to someone who will be more excited about me, the cookie maker, than the cookies.  I got a little teary-eyed thinking about that, about how many cookies I've sent off in cardboard boxes, to be consumed entirely out of sheer enjoyment of the cookie with very little thought to me, the one who stirred them all together.  

And I was thinking about that, getting emotional about cookies, when I realized that I do the same thing to God.  Maybe I was even doing it right then, being exceedingly pleased with the cookies without thinking about Him, the best cookie maker ever.  

So thanks for the cookies, God.  They are delicious, but mostly:

You Are.

And amazingly the cookie maker is more excited about the making of the cookies than the cookie eater ever can be...at least, in my experience.

I miss you. We spent six weeks of our lives together seven years ago...I miss the Mandi I remember in my head and sometimes wonder how time and God have changed her.

I love chocolate chip cookies, sometimes to my detriment and I don't know if you know how much I've needed to read words like yours. Simple yet complex and thoughtful. God is good and you convey it wonderfully...I've been needing to remember that quite badly. Thank you for that.
