Food on Fridays with Ann

On that first Good Friday, from about the sixth hour to the ninth hour, darkness came over all the land. About the ninth hour, Jesus cried out “‘Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?’—which means, ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?‘” Not long after, He cried out again and gave up His spirit.When Jesus’ followers, friends and family heard Him say “It is finished,” they must have assumed that was the end. How dark it must have felt. Dark as night. But in Jesus was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness…And night turned to day on Sunday morning.Night & Day Cookies1 cup butter, softened1 cup brown sugar, packed1 cup sugar2 tsp. vanilla extract2/3 cup baking cocoa2 eggs1 tsp. baking soda2 cups all-purpose flour2 cups white chocolate chips2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chipsCream butter, sugars and vanilla until fluffy; blend in cocoa, eggs and baking soda. Add flour; mix well. Fold in chips; shape dough into 1-1/2 inch balls. Place 3-inches apart on greased baking sheets; bake at 325 degrees for 14 to 16 minutes. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; transfer to wire cooling racks.Makes about 4 dozen cookies.

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. (Ephesians 5: 8-10)

May you walk in the light of Christ as you contemplate His sacrifice.
