I just would like to thank each one of you for sharing your hearts ~ and life ~ with me. Each comment left for me, here and at Kim’s, means the world to me. You are all so kind. Each one of you touched my heart ~ and my family’s heart. It’s people like you that make this world a better place to live in. Peace to all of you...in good times and in sad.
See the three little burlap cones above? I am having another little giveaway, so if you’d like to win these, just leave a comment on THIS post and I will pick the winner on Thursday, December 17 at 9PM Pacific Standard Time.
I’d like to say congrats to Jolie Anne for winning the giveaway over at Kim’s.
And thank you, Kim, for having me as your guest!!!
These two little angel faces aren’t part of the giveaway, but aren’t they just cute? Just thought I’d share this photo of them…
…as well as this beautiful photo of the sky. I took this the other day and loved the way the rays of light shined through the clouds.
"I'm Spending Christmas with Jesus this Year"
I see the countless Christmas trees
around the world below
with tiny lights like heaven stars
reflecting on the snow
The sight is so spectacular
Please wipe away that that tear
For I'm spending Christmas
with Jesus Christ this year
I hear the many Christmas songs
That people hold so dear
O', the sounds of music can't compare
with the Christmas choir up here.
For I have no words to tell you
of the joy their voices bring
for it's beyond description
to hear the angels sing.
I know how much you miss me,
I see the pain inside your heart.
but, through our memories so dear..
We're never far apart.
I can't tell you of the splendor
or the peace here in this place
Can you just imagine Christmas
with Our Savior.......face-to-face.
I'll ask him to light your spirit
As I tell him of your Love.
Then I'll pray for 'One another'
As you lift your eyes above.
So please let your heart be joyful
and let your spirit sing
for I'm spending Christmas in heaven
and I'm walking with the king.
I have been so blessed the past few weeks and would like to share with you some of the lovely handmade items that I have won. Above is an apron that was made by the sweet Abbie ~ isn’t it just perfect for Christmas? She also tucked in a wonderful smelling fresh balsam sachet and these little German stars that she made from old sheet music. Abbie not only shares with us how to make things on her blog, but she also is generous with her free graphics for us to copy and paste. Thank you, Abbie!!! I love everything!
The second beautiful blessing is this MERRY CHRISTMAS pillow that I won from Rebecca at A Gathering Place!!
I have been a fan of her handmade pillows and painted goodies for years and cannot believe that I actually won this lovely pillow! Infact, years ago Rebecca had made a similar pillow and had it for auction on eBay. I had bid on it, but didn’t win. ..sad face...
Thank you so much, Rebecca!
I love it!
