The prettiest of the cookies has to be the Macaron. This little French cookie is one I don’t bake well. And, by ‘don’t bake well’, I mean I bake something that resembles a hockey puck than a Macaron.
Oh, I’ve tried…and failed. But this year I spied this little kit at, where else, Target.
It spoke to me. It said, “Nous allons faire des biscuits!” (Let’s bake cookies!)
*** Insert random December Daily photos here, which have nothing to do with Macarons. ***
Back to the Macarons…

In the true spirit of Advent, here’s something I learned this week following along with the Advent Bible study at She Reads Truth:
Bethlehem means “House of Bread”.
In Hebrew, Beth•lehem is two words, Beth (House) & Lehem (Bread). Jesus was born in the House of Bread…and 33 years after his birth, He would break bread with his disciples saying, “Take, eat; this is My body.” (Matthew 26:26)
Reading this kind of stopped me in my tracks. His perfect irony is amazing, isn’t it? Maybe you knew this little tidbit already, or maybe, like me, you are hearing this for the first time. Either way, be still and let that soak in a moment. Because it’s pretty awesome.
