and stars twinkle on the trees,
When we tell our friends we love
them along with our families,
When everyone bakes cookies and
gives most of them away,
That's when the spirit of Christmas has come and blessed our day.

As I put up the Christmas decorations her little face reminds me of what Christmas is all about.
Even though we live in uncertain times. I am going to make sure that this is the best Christmas ever. I hope when my children grow up they will remember the smell of Christmas goods baking ,sounds of music, love and excitement in the air.
I can never sleep on Christmas Eve. I get so excited putting out the reindeer food,cookies for Santa and reading "The night before Christmas before bed. I will always cherish these magical times with my kids.
This is the last Christmas that my oldest daughter will still be a minor. This is very hard on me . Where did the time go? Just yesterday she was 4. I hope she will always remember to think of those who are less fortunate and keep Christ in Christmas. I know she will still be home for Christmas but it still breaks my heart to let her go. Sorry, Christmas makes me so sappy...sniff sniff

Today, the carpet I hate doesn't bother me as much or the material things that my heart desires. My cousin would give any material item to have his health back. Sometimes it take a tragedy like this to make one realize how precious life is and to appreciate the simple things that life has to offer. I have taken the time today to savor the smiles of my children and be thankful for the wonderful friends and family that I have been blessed with.

I have hired professionals before but they never did it to my satisfaction. I actually caught them spraying the front and not the back...little stinkers. I rely wanted to show my husband that I could do it. I guess time will tell.

When my aunt and her family first moved to the "country" the only thing that stood was a old log cabin and a few old barns. They did not have running water or electricity. This way of life was a choice for them. They could have lived anyplace that they wanted. They had a real passion for the land. They worked night and day and built a nice home, all by themselves. They now have electricity, water and phones. I believe it took 7 years or so.
After my cousin Renita grew up she built Haven of Rest. It is nestled in the woods. She no longer lives in the cabin. She is now renting it out so others may enjoy it.
My Aunt has prayed for many years that the property could be used for the Lord. The cabin is used many times by ladies retreats and missionaries. I enjoy the peace that I feel there. It is definitely a place that has been blessed by God.
I feel like a new person this week. It was much needed time away from Main Street USA.

It is a wonderful cool morning here this morning. My sweet potato plants have taken over but I don't mind. I sure have gotten my money's worth from them. If you take a start of of them you can stick it into another pot and it will grow. It will droop at first but be patient it will grow and grow...
I also took a few new pics of Abigail's playhouse. This is the first time that I have planted sunflowers. I love them. I can't believe they came from a little seed. I feel they are a little reminder of God smiling down on us. My great grandfather had them and they remind me of him.
Have a great Day!

Additionally, glass bottles, which have long been placed in windows for color ("poor man's stained glass"), are also commonly used to line flower beds.
