Ah, the smell of Christmas in the air. The aroma of cinnamon, sugar, and sweet golden cookies baking in the oven tantalizes the senses in our house this time of year. One of our Christmas tradition is baking cookies just as my husband’s grandmothers both did years ago. We even use many of the same recipes handed down for generations.
Message for the Journey:
Family traditions provide us with a sense of identity, comfort and history. They can bring pleasure, but they can also bring pain if they are unhealthy ones. Just because something is part of our history does not mean it must be part of our legacy. May the traditions we pass down only be ones that glorify the Father.
