Love one another...John 13:34

Here is my Sew Crafty Friday project. Not very crafty, but it’s the closest we’ve come this week!

Tomorrow we are having the monthly fellowship dinner at church. Since it is so close to Valentine’s Day, we’re taking heart-shaped sugar cookies.*
We wrote Bible verses on them about love. Last year we decorated the tables with heart-shaped paper cut-outs with the entire verse on them, but with the icing we were only able to get the text or a few words. The kids are still working on some more!

Check out Shereen's blog for some real crafty stuff!

Here are just a few of the verses that we used:
Psalm 116:1
John 14:15
John 15:13
John 15:17
1 Corinthians 2:9
1 Corinthians 13:13
Galatians 5:22-23
1 John 4:7
1 John 4:19

I have pictures for at least two other blog posts, we’ll see if I can get them up this weekend.

*By the way, does anyone have a wonderful sugar cookie recipe? I used the Better Homes & Garden cook book recipe. They're ok, but I think they could be better.

Sugar Crinkles

1/2 c sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1 c shortening or butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
2 c flour
1 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

Cream sugars, butter, vanilla and egg. Add dry ingredients, except last sugar. Mix well. Roll into one inch balls, roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cooking sheet. Bake at 350 for 10 min. or until lightly browned. 4 dozen. (From Country Inn and Bed & Breakfast Cookbook Vol. Two by Kitty and Lucian Maynard. 1990)

These are yummy!

Great idea on the cookies! I'm at work so I'm going to assume that they all have to do with love!
Very creative!

These are almost too pretty to eat. But I bet everyone gobbled them up and really enjoyed them, and had fun looking up the verses!

How yummy those look. Brings new meaning to the phrase, 'eat your words' and better Words can not be found. Thanks for sharing.
