|Amazing Valentine Cookies|
Boring square cookies transform into romantic letters sealed with wax:
|A Letter From an Admirer?|
Heart-shaped confections display icing dotted and adorned with tiny roses; a whimsical chocolate heart tempts me with that frosting made to resemble a Valentine's puzzle.

I love that God makes people who can do things like this. Not everyone creates the same kind of flair; I know I could never design such cookies. But someone else did, and I'm so glad. The children felt special as they ate such treats. The took their time about it.
I realize that when we observe (and make) beautiful things, we begin to take our time. We slow down and savor.
Living with flair means we embellish things--turning the ordinary into art--for others to enjoy. It slows us down.
