Spice and Sparkle

Donna’s Ginger Christmas Cookies

an old recipe

handed down

flour, butter, ginger, molasses

shaped into:

stars, bears, trees, a camel

hung on the tree to spin in the sparkle

or - eaten round

dough pressed by

the bottom of a glass

crisp medallions with sugar crystal tops

more precious still

stories of

my great-grandmother

a life recipe:

compassion, self-control, courage

honor to God, humble service to others

shaping lives

of those to come

five generations of

spice and sparkle, sweet and strong

I remember The cotton tied around the bottom of the glass pressing into the dough. Small pinches of sticky leftover gingerbread dough quickly consumed. Smelling the rich spices as they cooked in the oven. Thanks for bringing it all back sister.
