Fri-daily Devotion #1

Welcome to Fri-daily devotions with Josie! Today’s devotion is from Romans 3:23.

Read Romans 3:23 in your Bible.

Jamie was amazing in the eyes of everyone. At church, she memorized all the Bible verses. At school, all her grades were A+’s and she was on the honor roll.  At home, she never fought with her parents or her brother and sister.  Jamie’s parents always bragged about  her to their friends on Facebook.  Everybody wanted to be her friend.  But one day,  while she was at school, she blew up.

“Hey Jamie, it must be nice to be the perfect child, huh?” said the school bully, Jessica.

“What does that mean?” Jamie said.

“Good kids are geeks,” Jessica said.

“Not true,” Jamie protested.

“Yes-” Jessica tried to finish, but Jamie punched her in the stomach.  The school principal called Jamie’s parents. Her parents were very upset. Jamie kept thinking, ‘How did I get angry so easily?”

“Jamie, no one expects you to be perfect. The only person who was ever perfect and the only person who ever can be perfect was Jesus. Everybody sins. Look up in your Bible Romans 3:23 when we get home,” her dad said in the car. As Jamie read the verse, she smiled. Then, she asked Jesus to live in her heart so she could someday go to heaven, where there is no sin.

Inspiring RAK

Hi, it’s Josie. Every Wednesday, I will be posting a RAK story, or random act of kindness. In Baytown (at least I think that’s where it is) a man collapsed while he was mowing his lawn. The firemen had an idea.  They turned around and went back to the house where the man collapsed. They took turns mowing the front and back. In their video, they say they fought to see who got the lawnmower first! The man’s daughter was crying she was so touched. HERE is were you can watch the video.

 

 

Cookie Pops

Hi, it’s Josie. I have a recipe for you today. They are cookie pops: cookies on a stick! For this, you can use any cookie recipe.

1. Get out all of your ingredients. To make things a bit easier, pre-measure your dry ingredients if you are making it from scratch, and not a package.

2.Follow instructions on box/recipe.

3. Right before you put your cookies in the oven, put a popsicle/craft/food stick inside the bottom. Make sure it is in the middle of the cookie.

4. Let cook.

5. When done, you can put frosting on your cookies if desired.

Everyone loves these cookies. Once, I took them to soccer and everyone loved them. I hope you do too.
