To some, this is just a snickerdoodle cupcake – sugary frosting, sugary cake, sugary cookie butter filling, with cinnamon throughout.
To me, however, I see the creativity, imagination, and talent of my daughter. I see both the amazing young woman and the little 3 year old in a chef hat and apron from many years ago.
But more than that
I see the young woman who lives out the words of Micah 6: 8 – to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with God.
I love her passion for those on the margins and her openness to the breadth of the world.
I am hopeful for the future because of the strength and grace-filled fierceness with which she lives.
I am grateful for being blessed to be her father.
But I also enjoyed this sugary cupcake
