A Few of my Favorite Things #22- Sweet Treats!

I may not be able to have Christmas cookies or cakes or pies…but by golly I can have fudge…just like my Grams used to make!  I also have her famous peanut butter bars and Hershey kisses and peppermint bark!  That’s right one of my favorite things at Christmas is sweet treats baby!  It’s a good thing that bread and pasta, cookies and cake are no longer vying for calories in my diet I’ll tell ya!

When I think of sweet I not only think of treats…I can’t help but think of when our little Baby Jackson was born.  That was my constant word to describe him.  I just kept saying He is so sweet…he smelled sweet…he looked sweet…he radiated sweet.  It’s amazing I just didn’t eat him up with kisses.  To think…God chose so save the world by sending a sweet newborn baby boy that first Christmas night.  What could be sweeter?  I’m not sure if that’s why we eat all sorts of sweet treats or not…perhaps that’s just how I justify it?  So have some cake and cookies for me…and remember that sweet baby boy sent to rescue us.

Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.  Psalm 34:8
