My Grandmother's Cookie Jar

A yellow cookie jar
     glossy and round
Sits on the countertop
     old and worn.

The lid no longer fits,
Air seeps through the cracks—
The cookies go stale
and I'm disappointed...

I could fill it up
With tiny snickers bars
Another piece of you
The long lost owner.

Or I could tuck it away
Just a piece of nostalgia
With no real purpose
Left in its brokenness...

This old cookie jar
     yellow and worn
Still sits on the countertop
     repurposed and reborn.

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
