Children, Carols and Christmas Cookies!

Every year the childrens ministry at our church has the children make cookies for the nearby shut-ins and some of those on the prayer list. The prayer warriors at our church have been praying for me this whole year so I was one of the fortunate cookie recipients. In addition to making the cookies, the children put them in baskets, deliver them and even sing Christmas carols. What a joy! Here are some pictures from this years children's Christmas cookie ministry.

Nathan really liked rolling the dough

The final deliverable:  a basket with delicious cookies

Here are the children in my home delivering my basket

Nathan explaining how to make cookies (very detailed explanation about how to roll the dough)

What a nice surprise to have all the children come in to say hi.

Just before they left, they sang "Jingle Bells: and "I wish you a Merry Christmas"
Many thanks to the leaders who work so hard with the children's ministry at Stony Hill Baptist Church. What a joy to see all of the young kids and what a treat to have fresh Christmas cookies!


  1. What a neat service project!!!! I'm so glad that the kids got to make cookies, and I'm even more glad that they got to bring some to you!!!!

  2. What a great idea!

    I have however been worried about the warmth of the shorts in the winter weather and then I remembered that long pants aren't always your friend when you can't bend too well.

    I went with a loose skirt but I could understand that in your case this might cause chins to wag! ;D

    It also made me realise how far I've come since I was diagnosed - my feet are now my friends again!
