Now that Christmas is all up, I can tend to other seasonal things – like baking cookies for family and friends and spend time enjoying the season. This year’s decorations are pretty much the same as last, except for a new rusty old black scale that, for now, is the base for two bottle brush trees. Below is the Scottie tree that sits next to the “great wall of Scots”. The tree holds many sweet gifts that many of you have sent to me over the years – and you may even recognize them! Enjoy the little tour…..
Our family wishes you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a bright New Year!!!
A note to friends:
I know that many of you have lost loved ones and have had health issues or hardships over the past year, or so. Each day I think of you….Claudia, Pat, Lallee, Shelley, Donna, Nancy, Karen,Penny, Kathy, Debbie, Denise, Shelia, Cynthia, Amy, Susie Q, Sharon, Pam, Jean, Laura, Alice, Melinda, Linda…and so many, many more. I pray that our Father’s love touches you and sustains you through this season and the upcoming year – and really, for always and forever.
For those of you who have lost a loved one, it takes time for healing and some days are better than others, however the memory and the love that is held deep within our soul is what can keep us going. For me, it is the promise that God gives to us that someday we shall all be together once again. This is the food for my soul. Could there not be any better gift than that? I really don’t think so!! This beats chocolate cake any day!! So when I get down and feel really blue thinking of my precious angel Jordan, I just remember that even though he is with us in spirit, there will be a day that Heaven’s door will open wide and he will be there to give our family the biggest hug that one could EVER give. That thought puts the biggest smile on my face and fills my heart with pure JOY! I just want to do a little happy dance thinking about that!!!
Be sure to light a candle for Jesus this season and wish Him a very, very HAPPY BIRTHDAY and thank Him for all of HIS GIFTS to us that He gives each day.
May God Bless you and keep you….
always and forever,
See you next year! I am taking a break to share the time with family and friends. There are cookies to be baked, presents to wrap, dogs to play with, movies and books to catch up on, a mound of laundry that is going to sprout legs soon and a yard that needs some serious tending to. Oh hubbbbbby!
