"For Unto Us A Child Is Born...


...a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder; and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, the mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." (Isaiah 9:6) Tonight we will attend a candelight service in honor of His birth. It is through our Lord Jesus that we have restored fellowship with God, the assurance of eternal life and the reality of transformed hearts and minds. Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
Merry Christmas to all!

Not A Creature Was Stirring, Not Even.......

A Mouse!
Our library TA made this candy for us. I can't bear to eat it, it's just too cute. It's made with a cherry (with stem/tail), a Hershey's kiss, almond slices and a single flake of coconut for the whiskers. So clever!

Keeping First Things First

I am wrestling this season, vacillating between panic and joy, all of which is self-imposed! There are cookies to bake for gifts and things to wrap and cards to write and mail. I am at work for 8 1/2 hours every day, have physical therapy appointments after work several days a week and a multitude of holiday events I want to share with The Bearded One. When, oh when, will these things get done? In reality, they may not and I must let go of the angst over this fact. For if I don't, I will miss the whole point of this season, which is the birth of our Savior and Lord. It's hard to keep this in the forefront of my thoughts, when the list of things undone keeps sneaking in the back door! But I persevere!
