I do St Nicholas day twice

For the cookies below, that is, chocolate chip with dried cherries,
I used a powder egg replacer + 4 tbs of water in place of the egg and 1/4 cup of milk. 
I did not use nuts and used dried cherries instead of the fresh cranberries
 (I have used fresh cranberries before too!)

Soft tacos for dinner! A vegan fast-special :)

Saint Nicholas!!! 

I love St Nicholas so much!
We were at vespers for his feast tonight!
I hope to be at vigil for his feast in 13 days,
on the 19th!  :) 
We are in good hands when we trust St Nicholas for help!
His prayers are mighty and quick to hear!
More than once I would get unexpected monies on his day
when I was a student...
I was chrismated at his church in MI... 
I asked him to go with me to MI when I left BC,
knowing that I would be going to his church...
He has done so! 
My Husband loved my cookies! He commented that they
were really good and when I asked how many he had,
I was pleased to hear he ate 3 of them :) 
I am hoping to make more cookies, maybe another double batch tomorrow...
I like to give out cookies on St Nicholas' day and
it's going to be my main present for Mr Husband this year... :)
I am slowly gathering things for Christmas gifts,
I love baking and raiding the pantry for things.
My Husband printed our Christmas letter/card and soon I will have to start
working on this as well...
I was really inspired with the joy of yesterday's feast and with the
anticipation of St Nicholas's days to pray about our
unbloggable situation and ask for a miracle.
I don't know what miracle i am asking for, but asking I am doing.
I hope each of you are blessed and finding encouragement 
no matter what struggle you find yourself in today!

The cookies look wonderful and like your About Me blurb says, you make beauty where you are! Everything looks so cozy! I pray you get your miracle! :)

I had an odd little thought when you said you were praying for a miracle for your unbloggable trouble, but that you didn't know what miracle you hoped for. Here's my thought: when we pray for a solution to a problem, we pray that something we've chosen will happen. When we pray for a miracle, we're allowing room for an unexpected resolution that we never could have imagined! May resolution come!
