salty tears shed by Jesus' followers, and the bitterness of our own sin.
Read Luke 23:27

So far, the ingredients are not very appetizing. Add 1 cup sugar.

because He loves us. He wants us to know and belong to Him.
Read Psalm 34:8 and John 3:16

Beat with a mixer on high speed for 11-15 minutes until stiff

God's eyes of those whose sins have been cleansed by Jesus.

Go to Bed! Explain that they may feel sad to leave the cookies in
the oven overnight. Jesus' followers were in despair when the tomb was
sealed.
Read John 16:20 and 22

Notice the cracked surface and take a bite. The cookies are hollow!
On the first Resurrection Day, Jesus' followers were amazed to find
the tomb open and empty.

Oh yea! I also oil paint and I make diaper cakes. Rolled up diapers tied together to look
like a cake with all sorts of baby things stuck in the sides.I have done a few weddings for
some of the young couples in the community and where I work. The flowers and decorations & directed.So they could have a nice wedding that they couldn't afford. I feel these crafty things and talents that we have can be used as a ministry.

I love custom furniture building... either design it myself or look at something and design it from there. I built these all about 5 or 6 years ago; don't have any recent pics. I built a cradle for our firstborn, and a change table with a dresser/tower for our second... don't have pics of those.
Ok so where do I go to order some of these fabulous pieces! Great stuff!

That's really cool! I'll have to save it though, my son is allergic to eggs and it probably wouldn't work with out them. But he may grow out of it eventually.

I love the diaper cakes! I got one with my first. Donating your talents to good causes can definitely be used in ministry, keep up the good work!

You're absolutely right, Jean. I've done that myself - seen a really pretty setting in nature, whether flowers or otherwise, and thought about how great God was to place them in such a beautiful arrangement. Just think how much prettier it will all be in Heaven.
