My business (and hobby) is making decorated cookies (@sarahscustomcookies). I have a new baby so I have been on "hiatus" since February. I decided for 7 in 7 to make some for the teachers at Evelyn's preschool as an end of year treat. Decorated cookies is a long process. Today I made dough, cut out and baked the shapes. I will work on the icing tomorrow.
as I was working with the dough this morning I was reminded of this.
But now, O LORD, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand. - Isaiah 64:8
I was thinking that none of are like a perfectly cut shape that has clean edges and a smooth surface but that the lord is gracious to work on transforming our hearts and molding us like dough or clay. I want to be faithful and obedient to help mold my children into the way that he created them to be and desires for them.
