A home should have a cookie jar for when it is half past three
And children hurry home from school as hungry as can be,
there is nothing quite so splendid in filling children up,
As spicy, fluffy ginger cakes and sweet milk in a cup.
A home should have a mother waiting with a hug,
No matter what a boy brings home---a puppy or a bug,
For children only loiter when the bell rings to dismiss,
If no one is home to greet them with a cookie and a kiss.
It is well that our people understand this principle, so they will not be misled by those apostates within the Church who have not yet repented or been cut off. But there is a cleansing coming. The Lord says that his vengeance shall be poured out "upon the inhabitants of the earth.... And upon my house shall it begin, and from my house shall it go forth, saith the Lord; First among those among you, saith the Lord, who have professed to know my name and have not known me...." (D&C 112:24-26.) I look forward to that cleansing; its need within the Church is becoming increasingly apparent.
