And I will be testing out these cookies later. 

Over to N. N. LIght.

The holiday season is here and in between battling demons like Than and running a bookstore, Mary’s schedule is full. She doesn’t have much time to bake so she uses short cuts when she can. One of her favorite recipes is directly from her great-grandmother. She frosts them with her favorite buttercream frosting and decorates them with red and green sprinkles. Even the demons can’t resist trying one.

I watched as Joe drove away and knew I was going to be smiling for weeks. Out of the corner of my eye I noticed my skin glowing. What on earth? Gasping and looking around, I wondered if anyone else could see the purplish glow. "Princess?" Gabriel's voice echoed in my head. When I turned around and saw Gabriel behind me, I smiled. "I'm glowing," I exclaimed happily, then asked, "Is that normal? Can others see my glow?" I added in a whisper. "Princess, you'll find that people will see you in many different ways. Most will be drawn to you—not knowing why—and you'll help them see the Light." I nodded in understanding. Then it dawned on me that Gabriel was wearing clothes—a plain, grey hoodie and blue jeans. Where was his heavenly attire and wings? Gabriel chuckled. "I can appear human when the moment arises." Wait. He can read my thoughts?
 I wondered what else he'd heard. So, he could appear however he wished and he could read my thoughts... Great.
 I know this is coming at you fast, but please don't be afraid. You'll quickly adjust, and soon you won't even think about it. I heard Gabriel's words in my head, but his mouth remained in a kind smile.
 "You met André earlier." Gabriel said, aloud this time, getting right to the point. I nodded. "Yes." "André's story is a sad one. Let this be your first task as the Princess of the Light: Help André." "How can I help?" He seemed to shun people and any contact whatsoever. "You will, because it's His will. Do you doubt?" Gabriel paused. "I will be near you at all times," he reassured me. I shook my head. "I don't doubt. It's just... I don't know how I can help." Truthfully, there was more to it than even that. What if I failed? What if I couldn't help André because of my own short comings? I sighed. Gabriel looked at me and simply smiled. "Remember you carry the Light. It is in you to do. But first you have to believe. Do you?" He was asking the faith question. I certainly believed in the Lord and His magnificent power. "Yes," I said. "I have faith and I trust in God. With you as my guide and the Lord leading me, I can do it." Now, if only I believed that last part.
 "Concentrate on the Light within you and imagine your Light is easing his pain," he said. Gabriel then turned me back toward to the sidewalk and pointed down a little ways. I guess we weren't going to have a discussion first. We were just going to get started. About five hundred yards away, the Walking Man—André, I corrected myself—was on the sidewalk. He appeared to be talking to himself. What should I do? Gabriel's voice echoed back in my head, The Light in you can heal. It can take away darkness. It reveals Truth. Truth cannot be destroyed. Your enemy may twist it, hide it under a blanket of darkness, and even laugh at it. But he cannot destroy it.
 I nodded, trying to create a mantra in my head: I'm the Princess of the Light. I'm the Carrier of the Light, and Light reveals Truth. I can do this. I concentrated hard on the Walking Man, lifted my arm and prayed, Let the Light enter André and ease his suffering.
 Suddenly, what looked like purple lightning bolts shot out of my palm and seemed to enter his chest. Whoa, what was that?
 I spun around to ask Gabriel, but he was gone. Something laughed. André stood staring at me with nearly tangible intensity. Had he heard the laugh, too? He didn't even seem aware of the sparks of purple light, let alone the darkness that was trying to envelop him. Buy Links:Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/469480
