My family's favorite chocolate chip cookies are: 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of brown sugar, 2/3 cup of shortening, 2/3 cup of butter, 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 4 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon of salt. I memorized this recipe many years ago because it works, and we like it. I tried several recipes when I was first married, and now I don't try any new chocolate chip cookie recipes. It's a simple recipe that's hard to mess up. Simple helps me walk through life. Real simple thoughts truly are greatly loved by me! If a thought is simple, I can remember it, and it helps me walk the journey of life. Psalm 117 is a simple psalm we can easily memorize. "Praise the Lord, all you nations. Praise him, all you people of the earth. For he loves us with unfailing love; the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord." That's the whole psalm...simple. Two simple thoughts: God's love never fails, and God is always faithful. Always and never are two dangerous words unless it's God speaking. We all desire to be loved perfectly, and God is the ONLY one who can fill up our tank inside. No one else can love like God. No one else can be faithful forever. Thank God today for His perfect love and faithfulness.
