Cookies and Crayons

Ok - I've gotten inspired by all my blogger friends who are posting recipes and photos of baked goods: bread, pies, etc...I decided to make peanut butter cookies this afternoon. Boy, are they good! (if I do say so myself)



I have had a 4th delightful little boy in my home this afternoon. He's one of our neighbor boys and his name is Jose. The boys and he have colored pictures, listened to Spanish Sunday School songs, played games (inside and outside), and ate cookies (he happily ran off to deliver a few to his family).




Outside of waving to her and just saying hello on the street, I have not actually talked to Jose's mom. But I really want to. I know their family does not go to church - Jose asks me where we go on Sundays. I would love for this to be an open door to befriend and witness to his family. Help me pray that God opens the door and gives me an opportunity and the words to say!
