Yum in the Tum

Every day is a blessing, but today is a major blessing because it's the first day in a long while where I spent most of it at home. Some of my blessings today include:

1. Going through boxes of Lamplighter books. 
2. Making tea.
3. Talking with my sis-in-law on the phone.
4. My neighbor bringing me a huge potted fern, plus some homemade fudge and peanut butter almond bark. Yeah. :)
5. Making these snickerdoodles

Actually, this could quite possibly be my favorite part of the day. ;) I've never made snickerdoodles before, much as I love them. I was curious how these would turn out, and so far two people have told me they're the best they've had. YAY! :) I can't wait for Chris, Todd, and Aimee to try them (if the cookies last that long, that is!) 

Random post about my day, but I thought you should know about this recipe.

"When God made time, He made enough of it."

When I first read this Celtic saying, its simple truth jarred me. 

It made me uncomfortable.

Because this truth made me see the untruth I had been living. When I live scrambled, and my mind is full of webs of worry because I prefer to meditate on the full day I have ahead of me instead of the Book full of truth and peace, and my words are pinched and angry and hurtful because I can't slow down to think before I speak, I am believing that the infinite God didn't make enough time. 

If He pronounced all of His creation, including the amount of time, "good," then why can't I? 

He gave me 24 hours in a day. 24. Every day. People work and laugh and sing and live and enjoy and love in a day. How blessed I am as a Christian to know Who gave me the time I have! 

Every moment is grace. And yes there are errands to run and people to write and things to buy and rooms to clean and stuff to organize, but guess what? There's time. And when God made time, He made enough. :)
