{Faith vs Fortune...}

My
Macaroon Weekend
turned
Fortune Cookie Weekend...
{next weekend it will be Macaroons..I promise...but I do have
a very good reason...you see I realized that this
Tuesday it is my turn to do staff devotions at my school...I had
to think quick ...... this is what I came up with}

Faith Cookies










no easy task I might add..but once I got the hang of it
I was on my merry way...with much help from my daughter

recipe here


if you want to give it a try...email me
I have a few tips that will save you some time and frustration

The message I put inside my cookie is....
Faith is being sure of what we hope for
and certain of what we do not see
{Hebrews 11:1}


After making these I know macaroons will be a breeze!
{thank you for all the words of encouragement you gave me concerning
the making of macaroons....next weekend it is!}

Macaroon or fortune cookie, you are just best at what you are doing, thanks for sharing (reminding) such beautiful message!

I'm sure it's a blessing to everyone when you do staff devotions. Your ability to share an uplifting message is apparent to all of your followers here. These are wonderful.

Faith cookies....only you dear Koralee could think of something as wonderful as this. Spreading the Faith...much more important than macaroons...although I am sure they will be yummy and oh so lovely too.
Thanks for stopping by and liking the pics...happy to hear that you know the locations.It has taken me all week to rest up...back to school tomorrow.
Have a marvelous Monday tomorrow.
Debbie :)

WHAT A GREAT BLESSING INDEED! You know, a colleague of mine that gets frustrated with our public school system that does not allow any discussion of faith. I say, "Perfect. That forces me to be a Christian instead of just talking about it." Harder to do, but well worth the challenge!

BISOUS BEAUTIFUL ONE! Anita

Magpie's Mumblings said...

I made fortune cookies years ago and do recall them being a bit fiddly, but oh so worth it! Yours look yummy!

Hi Koralee!
YOU DID IT :D
Oh what a treasure you are to your teaching community ♥ I can only imagine how you are loved ~
These are going to be something to remember tomorrow ~ I know it would be that way for me if one of my faculty members brought such a gift of love and time ~
...As a teacher in a public school, I do appreciate, with all my heart, those fellow staff members who are happy to share their love of God ♥
Tomorrow, I'll be thinking of this special presentation of beautiful treats!
love,
Maria

Hi There Koralee!!! As usual your post is Beautiful! I feel like I have been so distracted when it comes to blogging. Thank you for continuing to post for Friday Pretties.
My Mom's memorial was Saturday, and it was wonderful. Now that that is done I am hoping that things will return some what to normal again and that I can blog a little more.
Have a wonderful week!
Love, Joyce

Hi Koralee - Okay, I did delete my last comment because of spelling errors. My body and my brain are not functioning at full speed yet after an exhausting weekend, sorry.

I adore your fortune cookies in that pink tea cup! So cute - and you are ONE ambitious bluebird my friend! I don't know that I would even attempt to take on that baking project! What a trooper you are and that message is perfect!

(LOVE the new banner too!!!) xoxo

It looks like the Faith Cookies took a lot of PATIENCE!! :) It's so cool that you made your own!! Sounds like a really fun project. :)
Good luck with your upcoming macarons. :) :) :)
