I Love How The Morning Sunlight Shows Off The Imprint Of Leaves Limbs And The Trunks On The Brick And Glass
The Best Beauty I Present Last I Love To Hear This Bell If It Just Could Have Been Ringing This Morning When I Was Looking At It But I Still Sent My Prayers Up
Blessings, in abundance, in our house. Our blessings are sent from above. They are in love for our children, family members, and close friends. Blessings given as gifts. Such as, good health, happiness, the strength of love dissolving the stress of life.
We decided before our last two children moved out this year, that we wanted to celebrate Christmas with them. So Christmas in July came to our house this weekend.
Friday, we loaded up in my truck and visited our very nice Kroger store. Our daughter took her two children and worked on getting all the dairy products we needed, and our son went in search of baking items. I reread the list several times,added a few things and then we headed home for some hot cheddar broccoli soup and warm blueberry muffins. Of course, we needed a warm meal if we were pretending it was snowing outside! We listened to Christmas music and ended up Friday evening watching Trapped in Paradise.
Saturday morning began the preparations of ham,corn souffle,green bean casserole,baked beans,cookies, and pumpkin pie. We had Christmas themed cartoons on for the babies and enjoyed looking at the decorations and lights that filled the family room, kitchen, and bathrooms.
Today, Sunday, we will bake cookies, ice and decorate them, enjoy leftovers, watch more Christmas movies and my husband will read from the book of Luke in the Bible. In our minds are visions of past holidays and travels, memories we have shared with one another. In our hearts is overflowing love and abundant blessings that we never dreamt could be. Happy Christmas! Merry Christmas in July! Love Hope and Peace! Jen
Whether I get up or not each day, my life and life around me is going to continue. There has been no tragedy, just many changes this year. Some very stressful one’s that felt like they might break me, but as they passed through, beautifully, along came the blessings. These testings have just made me more fiercely, determined to stop! Stop worrying. Pray. Stop trying to fix what is wrong and just let it happen. Once I was able to clear the ugly from others out of my life, back came the smiles, the laughter, the happiness. The joy of getting up every morning to open the curtains, listen to the birds, take a walk, and plan out our goal list. Now, I concentrate on all the positive people around me that love me, for me. There will always be the mean and ugly, but who know’s what will happen to them? Maybe prayer and patience to let it happen will be the strong path to them healing and being a blessing to someone in their life that needs them. For now, I am moving forward,enjoying the blessings. Curiously excited to see what will happen in my life. Peace.
16 Days till Christmas caught my ear on the radio this morning. I was driving along, envisioning myself in either a grumpy bear suit or a itchy, green Grinch outfit,growling or mumbling unkind words at anyone and everyone,being selfish with my own space and grabbing time for just me. The thought of actually wearing the suits as a warning to everyone so I don’t have to say why I feel like this every single time for the past million months (you’d think they’d know by now),made me smile :^). All these thoughts that took long enough for me to drive a short road,made me turn a different corner in my thoughts. The evil me melted away and I began to think unselfishly about those I love,and then on to those I see struggling,to those that are in need,to those that are struggling and in need of help within these 16 days till Christmas. So it is,bags of clothes and games from the family to donate,little lonely older people to visit,donations to be made,and cookies to be baked and delivered and joy and the hope of helping make 16 days a thankful time of prayer, love, and peace to all.
