It's Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas!!

Enjoyed a lovely holiday with family.

Now back to reality with learning, laundry and lists to complete.

Christmas is the season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart.

All Because

"Thank you Lord for loving me,

Thank you Lord for saving me,

Thank you Lord for making me whole

and saving my soul."

He has blessed my life in the good times and in bad.

Counting many blessings today.
Hope of heaven
Warm autumn days
Laughing children
Joy in my heart
Sound of music and the gift of hearing "I LOVE YOU"
Seeing creation
Being able to take a walk without pain
Kisses given and received
The warm glow of candles
A good book...THE GOOD BOOK

And the list goes on and on.

All because of Him.

He became flesh and made his dwelling among us.

All those in the military, past or present,
especially my father.

Hiking, Ten and the LIGHT

We were able to get away and enjoy a hike at Chimney Rock Park.

The weather was perfect.
The trees were beautiful.
The waterfalls were gorgeous.

The kids did not complain once about the moderately difficult hike.
Sophie made it all the way to the top with little or no help from Mom or Dad.

My precious first born turned 10 last week.
I am in disbelief that ten years have past since she made me a mother for the first time.
I am so proud of the young lady she is becoming.
I pray she will continue to walk in the Light.

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.
1 John 1:7
