He sweetens our ugliness

On Monday night, some of the girls from our Sunday School class gathered for an Tacky Christmas Sweater Cookie Exchange.  Super fun!  I made some really yummy Peppermint Chocolate Thumbrints with Ganache filling (they won Best Overall Cookie!!), borrowed a lovely sweater from my mom (thanks, MorMor!) and headed off.

I'm telling y'all... there were some pretty awesome sweater ensembles.  The best was Brooke, who had lovely little hair bows to match, and April, who MADE her tacky sweater.  It was awesomeness. 

However, the awesomeness of the sweaters did not even compare to the awesomeness of the cookies.  These women have SKILLS! 

Before we started sampling, Brigette said a little blessing and reminded us that our tacky sweaters were a lot like us.... ugly.  But lucky for us, God gave us His Son to sweeten the deal.  The sweetness of Jesus and His amazing grace far outshines the ugliness of our sinful lives.  She encouraged us to "Taste and see that God is good."  (Psalms 34:8)  I loved the parallel!  I am so glad to get to live with these women... Godly, sweet, real women!
