Pslam 71:17 is a verse I pray for my daughter often - that she would know and love God from a young age.
Isaiah 41:10 is a verse I recite to myself often. Especially in times of need and struggle with my circumstances around me.
Much Grace to You,

My great-aunt Marilyn's sugar cookie recipe:
- 1 C sugar
- 1 tsp grated lemon rind (I doubled it for more lemon flavor)
- 3/4 C softened butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 1/4 C flour
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp baking powder
1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Cream sugar, butter, and salt.
3. Beat in egg, lemon rind, and vanilla till light and fluffy.
4. Add flour and baking power mixture gradually into butter mixture.
5. Chill dough (roughly 2 hours or overnight).
6. Roll out on floured board until 1/8" thick.
7. Cut into various shapes.
8. Put on very lightly greased cookie sheet and sprinkle with more sugar. (I omitted adding the extra sugar on top at this step since I was adding gels and sprinkles later.)
9. Bake until lightly browned at edges 9-12 min.
10. Cool on wire racks. After cookies have cooled off, decorate with gels and sprinkles.
* Makes approximately 2-3 dozen cookies depending on the size of your cutters.
