Year 5- Day 206: Today, I am grateful everything's better with sprinkles.
Sprinkles are the glitter of the confectionary world. They come in an array of colors to add something special. The one who goes to the extra effort to add sprinkles is sending the message that "I care enough to go the extra mile." Sprinkles take a sweet treat and adds some pizazz.
Tiny beads, quins (fun shapes), confetti, jimmies (shaped like hot dogs), sanding sugar, edible pearls. chocolate shavings, pixie dust and powdered sugar are all part of the arsenal in a baker's cabinet.
The funny thing about sprinkles is that they are not that expensive and go a long way. The bang for your buck is pretty big. Confectionary delights really do begin with the eye and the presentation, long before that first bite. Hospitality is enhanced by making the extra effort to add the sprinkles. Those whose spiritual gift is hospitality, naturally add the sprinkles to everything they do.
The book of Hebrews has a verse that talks about sprinkles. It is the sprinkle of Christ's blood that cleanses our sins and guilt. In baptism, we wash our bodies in response and in testimony to the difference he makes in our lives.
"Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water." -Hebrews 10:22
What would life be without the sprinkles?
What would eternity be without the sprinkle of Christ's blood?
Today, I am grateful everything's better with sprinkles.
