The Deacon's Bench

The Deacon's Bench

Lead us not into temptation

Just in time for Lent, when more of us are struggling to fast and do without, someone created this:

It’s the world’s largest Girl Scout cookie.

The caption says:

Pastry chef Ernie Rich applies the finishing touches to the largest chocolate and vanilla girl scout cookie ever made during an event at the National Constitution center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, February 27, 2009. The Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania made the cookie to mark the 75th anniversary of the first commercial girl scout cookie sale which was in Philadelphia in 1934.

Give me strength.

Girl Scout cookies during Lent is the main reason that God inspired someone to invent the FREEZER.

Amen.My husband was at a meeting last and won as a door prize a box of mint chocolate cookies. I’m sure they are from last year’s sales. But none the less, into the freezer they went.
