Jesus is the reason for the season words

Todays Verse:  And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered.  This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city.  Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child. Luke 2:1-5

Todays Goal: Todays goal is simple, Take a few minutes out of your day and visit someone who may be alone this year for Christmas. It doesn’t have to be for a long time, maybe for coffee, or offer to take some one shopping, or even visit an older person in the nursing home that could need cheering up. You could even just stop and say hi to someone you pass by in the grocery store.

2/3 cup shortening

Something Special to Do:

Since you are collecting these easy cookie recipes I have been posting, it could be a good idea to make a cookie recipe book. This can be an easy idea too, just get one of those inexpensive journals that you can write the recipes in. You can decorate the outside with some Christmas cutouts, or stamps or ribbons, or whatever your creative mind can think of!! You could even type the recipes on the computer, print them out, and attach them to the pages. It could be given as a gift for Christmas with some of the cookies you bake for someone special! Do you give cookies away as Christmas gifts?
