Yesterday, on our way to the nursing home (for our usual Christmas service for the residents), our conversation came to discussing the many people in the police/fire/medical services that were working on Christmas. As we talked, the Lord gave Anna an awesome idea – what if we could make some cookies for the police officers in our town?
We made arrangements with the police dispatcher, who said that they would ask an officer to bring the cookies back to the station. The kitchen was soon a major blur of activity while we baked the cookies and Mary crafted a card. After the cookies were finished, we wrapped them in plastic wrap, and arranged them in a basket.
A little while later, the doorbell rang, and we gave the officer the cookies. We are so grateful for our police officers and the other emergency people who put their lives on the line for our protection and safety.
“And let the peace of God rule in your hearts,
to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.”
