Time: 10:30 a.m.
When: This morning
Making cookies with my 6 year old grandson, 4 year old granddaughter and my 9 year old niece. Just “simple (but not so simple)” sugar cookies…using Play dough cutters… cooking then frosting and sprinkles of all colors. They are the bakers and decorators so try to envision the beautiful mess. (I should also mention the big huge box I had been saving for them to play with and much debris spilling outside onto the porch that were present. Adding to the look of an unkempt household.)
They all spent the night last night so I am still in the same clothes I wore and fell on my face in from yesterday (chuckle*chuckle). I had to color the vanilla frosting with jello (orange-red) since I didn’t have any food coloring. Then of course I had to taste it…smeared on my face.
Oh and scraps of paper from snowflake cutting (great witnessing about the Lord and how snowflakes are also a great wonder of our God to children!)
I look out the door and coming up our lane is a pretty and oh so shiny maroon colored car. I am wondering who it could be as the car did not look familiar. Then it hits me as this very pretty blonde haired lady in her beautiful black over coat and clicking heels and her son with a very nice suit and tie walk up-as my 14 year old with Down Syndrome zips past her out the door to play baseball in his favorite barely recognizable Snoopy shirt FULL of holes.
YEP! Jehovah’s Witnesses. UGH! Why do they always come at a time I am not prepared! LOL! I am wondering how convincing I was to them when I explained that I believe in a literal hell and that they were not going to convince me any different as I stood in the doorway ( I couldn’t even let them in the house as there is STUFF everywhere! Sugar and frosting mostly!). Any thing I knew in the moment before they walked up to my humble abode went out the window 😦
She gave me her name and is from our area wondering if I should have told her to come back…
Praying what the Lord did give to me to share in that moment fell on HEARING ears!
God is good! ❤ ❤ ❤
