Wishing you a joyful holiday!

May you be comforted in the reality of His Truth,

grateful for the assurance of His grace,

and hopeful in the thought of His return.

He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!

~Revelation 22:20

The Best Gift

Maybe,
 the best gift 
Christmas can bring
is knowing 
I really don’t need 
one more thing.


To God be the glory, 
forever and ever. 
Amen!
Galatians 1:5

Christmas: From Our Home To Your Home


I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. ~Charles Dickens 

This beautiful angel ornament is made by a sweet sister in grace,
and is the newest addition to our Tree ornament collection.


This little Shrinky Dink (you remember Shrinky Dinks, right?) was made a few years ago, by yours truly, when my Girl and a friend spent an afternoon making all kinds of tween girl themed, oven-baked trinkets! 

My Gram’s Crystal Punch Bowl. Every Christmas it was full of eggnog, such a magical brew. It was soooooooooooo good. Multiple o, worthy. Trust me. 

Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love. ~Hamilton Wright Mabi 


OK, so I stink at “Wordless” Wednesday…BUT here I am, with a multitude of words, wishes and wonder of the season for you…and a snowy evening in here on the East Coast!

Abandoned Roses Reveal His Grace

On a recent walk, I came across these roses tossed in a river. They captured my eye and imagination for sure, but more than anything they reminded me of the beauty of God’s grace in the midst of life’s seasons and changes. As I pondered these beautiful, vivid colored roses, thrown to their own watery end among the fall leaves, I couldn’t help but see a picture of His mercy and tender beauty among the murky waters and changing seasons. You know, they did not sink, but were kept afloat, their fragile beauty, even more evident in their lingering. 
 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12:9

Will you join me in a prayer for today: May we cling to Your beauty, grace, and all sufficiency when all around us seems, in our perception, hopeless. Lord, your grace is sufficient, and your power abundant in our weakness. Let your power rest upon us. May Your beauty be more evident in us as we linger in your presence. In Jesus name, we pray. 

Sunflower Joy!


Hooray! My camera batteries came in today and the first thing I did was run to the backyard to capture the Sunflowers that are currently surrounding the bird-feeders! So much for Wordless! But here are the photos I promised on Monday!
