I took all my good ingredients,
put them into a bowl, mixed them up,
some took just a tablespoon,
some took more than a cup.
Each one had its own part to play
to make the cookie dough,
and if you left even one thing out,
when you tasted it, you'd sure know!
When I look back at all I've been
all the not-good things I've done,
then I look at what God has wrought,
to bring us two into one!
When Jesus came into my heart,
He had to sweep so much ugliness away,
and replaced it all with wonder and joy,
showing me a brand new way.
Only then were the ingredients ready,
to become this creature so new,
only then would my heart be ready
to fall in love with you!
God just knew the exact right timing,
He knew the 'how' and 'when' were right,
and our hearts knew when we first met,
love was ours, shining so bright!
Now every day the recipe's ready,
each day is like a flavor so new,
full of joy and new discoveries,
all because I LOVE YOU!!!
