Okay, it is difficult to find a Bible translation with the above book in it, but stay with me!
One of my favorite things to do is bake for folks. My late Mother did also and so it stirs up happy memories, so when I began to have some limiting physical challenges as she had, I could not do exactly what I used to do. This was the stage at which Mom gave up. So, my reaction?
- What? I cannot bake?
- It was fun!
- People were happy!
- Dang, what good am I?
For a while I wished I could do what I “lost”and pouted! That blessed nobody! Eventually, the Lord spoke louder and got my attention. He gave me a heart and mind and I gave up too soon! If I was meant to accomplish something, He would provide a way! So, when He said “make a different cookie!” I realized if I had quit sulking, I might have gotten a lot more baking done a lot sooner.
This isn’t really about cookies, though the story is true.
When the road turns in a new direction, the trip isn’t over yet! His plan is ALWAYS best. There have been loads of surprise road blocks in my life, but when I FOLLOWED HIM, what He planned was SOOO MUCH BETTER than mine! Can I get an AMEN?
White chocolate chip cookies
1 cake mix (I used butter pecan)
1/3 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla
choc chips of your choice (I did not measure)
Mix well and bake at 375 for about 9 minutes on a parchment lined baking sheet, pay attention as time may vary. Should be light brown on bottom and will be very soft until cooled! I made mine just under golf ball sized. Smaller will need less time and ovens vary!
Laugh! I always have a few cake mixes, when they are on sale, and dislike cake generally. VERY handy for baking all sorts of non-cake treats in a hurry! As for cake, I prefer my ice cream solo!
