I was sick, and ye visited me. … Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me (Matthew 25:36, 40).

Mom and Callie were making cookies.

Callie squirted green icing onto the cookies.

SQUIRT!

Callie picked up three pink candies. She dropped them on top of the frosting.

PLOP! PLOP! PLOP!

Callie and Mom decorated all the cookies.

“It looks like a flower garden,” Callie said.

Callie helped Mom wrap the cookies. They wanted to give the cookies to Sister Jones. Sister Jones was sick.

Mom and Callie drove to Sister Jones’s house.

Callie rang the doorbell.

DING-DONG!

Sister Jones opened the door.

“We brought you a yummy flower garden,” Callie said.

Sister Jones was happy. Callie was happy too.

I bet Mrs. Rosa would like a flower garden.

And some Christmas carols!
