Lemon Cookies & a Treasure from the Word

Hi friends~ You have been such a blessing to me and to my family through your comments and your prayers for us as we seek and wait upon the Lord. What a gift you are to all of us!!!

I know I posted this last year, but for the life of me, I can’t find it on my own blog! So, I’ll re-post, because THIS IS TRULY THE BEST LEMON COOKIE EVER! I made some a few weeks ago and can’t wait to make them again.

Cake Mix Lemon Cookies

1 box Lemon Supreme Cake mix

1/3 cup shortening

1/3 cup butter (or marg.), softened

1 egg

Mix all ingredients for 2 minutes. Roll in balls and place on cookie sheet. I press the balls out with the sugar coated bottom of a drinking glass. (The colored decorator sugar looks even prettier.)

Bake at 375 for 9-12 minutes, until they are light brown around the edges. Let cool and enjoy. (Sometimes I frost them with lemon frosting… yumm!)For more easy and delicious recipes, pop over to “Tasty Tuesdays” at Balancing Beauty and Bedlam. There’s always something special in those lists of recipes.

Thanks, again, for being a part of what God is doing in our lives. We have been very aware of His presence this past week, and we know that He will take care of us. I want to share with you a special treasure the Lord gave me in my time with Him. What a mighty and faithful God we serve!

“For the Lord God is a Sun and Shield; the Lord bestows [present] grace and favor and [future] glory (honor, splendor, and heavenly bliss)! No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.

O Lord of hosts, blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who trusts in You [leaning and believing on You, committing all and confidently looking to You, and that without fear or misgiving]!” Psalm 84:11-12

“Sun… Shield…Present grace and favor…future glory” – What a treasure! Trusting in Him “…without fear or misgiving” – What a goal and prayer for today and everyday!

Love and Our Lord’s peace to each of you…
