Pint-Sized Golf Pro

I’ve only talked to one of my neighbors since we dropped off the butterscotch haystacks, but I think they liked them. Someone asked about how to package them. I bought some small, square aluminum cake pans that came with lids and I lined them with a little bit of wax paper. That worked great because they were cheap and disposable. I also wrote a little card to each neighbor and included the recipe inside.

Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here before we know it and we will all have some great opportunities to take sweet treats to our neighbors. I would just encourage anyone to pray and ask God how you could be a blessing and spread the fragrance of the knowledge of Christ to those who live closest to you.

I’m not sure how many of you have listened to the “A Christmas Collection” CD that we have in our online store. It would be a great thing to include in a basket of goodies for the holidays. In it, my mom narrates a few Christmas stories and poems that she wrote several years ago. It’s one of my favorite products that we have. Diane always gives me a few copies to give out at Christmas.

While I’m on the topic of products that help you get ready for the holidays, let me mention one other thing. I recently heard Dennis and Barbara Rainey talking about her book Thanksgiving: A Time to Remember on Family Life Today. It is a “beautifully illustrated coffee table resource to help your family recognize God’s hand in our history, remember His blessings in the past, and express thankfulness to Him for His goodness today.” If you order the book, they will include the audio book – the dramatic presentation of the real story of Thanksgiving – for free. They played a portion of the audio book on the radio program and it had me hooked! It was very moving. So I will be ordering that for the Jones family before Mr. Jackson wakes up from his nap!

Last but not least, here is a picture of the little man in his golfer costume last night.

Here we are with our friends Janelle and Ella at our church’s fall festival. My mom will appreciate that the girls were 80’s aerobics instructors. You can’t tell in this picture, but I wore a poodle skirt and some saddle shoes.

Happy November, everyone!

“But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of him.”
2 Corinthians 2:14
