Thankful Cookies

God is close.  So close.  I forget easily given in to material distractions both trivial and necessary.  But when I look upon my newborn son's face I can almost see what God has in mind for this world.  James may have my lips and Lynette's nose, but his soul came from God.  And I feel terribly humbled that something I made can act as a vessel for such a precious thing.

When I look at James' face I can't help but ponder mortality, spirituality, goodness, love, and the universe, all spinning and twisting together like a chaotic recipe for the most delicious cookies in the darkest, messiest kitchen.  Follow your nose, James. Follow your nose.
