My elementary school was on the same street that we lived on, and although it was a long block, but we did not need to cross any streets.
When school was over, we would rush home to see what Mother had prepared for our after school treat.
I remember one day, it was fresh hot home made cinnamon rolls, but usually it was a cookie with a glass of milk.
These treats reminded me of my Mother’s love and her concern that we not famish and waste away between after school and dinner time.
I believe God is that way too, because every now and then he gives us a little taste of His Glory and our memory is jogged to understand His love for us.
Today we can sit at his table and drink of his life giving water, as we read and study His Word. We are conscious of the fact that someday we will be with Him in heaven at the Grand Supper that He will prepare for those who love Him.
God has special treats for his children, and they are not allotted to simply “After School.”
We can partake of his Holy love, by spending time with him any day of the week, and not just on Sundays or school days.
One of Mothers favorite treats was her special Apple Cake and I share the recipe with you.
