Cookies From The Heart

Cookies From The Heart

The crumbled heaps of crackers
Lay everywhere in sight
Her giggles of excitement
Echoed in the kitchen white
Icing puddles frosted spoons
Baby singing preschool tunes
With frosted hair
And a chocolate face
She asked sweetly, “Want a taste?”

Chorus:
Oh, cookies from the heart
Something she could do
To show how much she loves me
A simple gift so true
So keep the cookies coming
The handprints on the wall
This time won’t last forever
And one day she’ll be tall


She needed no recipe
for the mess she had made
her bright eyes shined with pride
a moment I’d never trade
graham cracker kisses sweet
bear hugs that could not be beat
Squeals of delight
Matched my joyous cheers
I brushed back my flowing tears

Chorus:
Oh, cookies from the heart
Something she could do
To show how much she loves me
A simple gift so true
So keep the cookies coming
The handprints on the wall
This time won’t last forever
And one day she’ll be tall

The chapel, packed with people
as music filled the air
this dreaded yet dreamed of day
designed with time and much care
memories flooding like my tears
I wished for those cookie years
she walked the aisle
then tucked in my hand
something sweet, I’d understand….

with note attached, it read:

Final Chorus:
A Cookie from my heart
I remember well
You took time to spend with me
not always scold or tell
I’ll keep the cookies coming
No matter how far the drive
when I’m a mom we’ll keep
this memory alive

The kitchen was now filled
merely with pots and pans
clean counters, four spotless walls
memories and unkept plans
then a knock came at the door
“Mom, we should have called before
but the kids wanted
to make cookies here”
no sweeter sound filled my ears…

Chorus:
Oh cookies from the heart
Something she could do
To show how much she loves me
A simple gift so true
So keep the cookies coming
The handprints on the wall
This time won’t last forever
And one day she’ll be tall…

(background of childish laughter and simple songs sung.)

“…Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me…”Matt 18:4-5


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
