Let each one give thoughtfully and with purpose just as he has decided in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver and delights in the one whose heart is in his gift. 2 Corinthians 9:7

The time is drawing near to make Christmas cookies and spread some cheer
Search through the recipe book for the perfect cookies in taste and look.
Some will have raisins, nuts or chips and some with frosting that sticks to your lips.
Crunchy or gooey, melt in your mouth. Or something decadent from the south.
Giant or bite size to fit in your hand. Covered with glaze or sugary sand.
A kitchen with flour from counter to floor. Four batches ready and time for one more.
Friends and neighbors each get a plate and save some for family on Christmas Eve late.
Mixing and baking what lovely sight. Giving and sharing makes December just right.
