Christmas Blessings to You and Your Family

Christmas Blessings to You and Your Family

  I hope you all who celebrate this holiday have had a lovely Christmas eve and Christmas day. My Christmas eve day and evening was busy with baking and sewing. This Christmas day was full of time spent with family, followed by leisure and relaxation. So this is a “twofer” combined post for this holiday weekend, sharing several Christmas-related quotes from The Quote Garden. Enjoy!       “There has been only one Christmas — the rest are anniversaries.” ~W.J….

Sweet Saturday Second Celebration – Craving Approval – January 2 Devotions

So yesterday, Saturday, January 2nd, my hubby Dave and I traveled out of state to have our second Christmas celebration with some of my family (including two adult daughters, sons-in-laws, and granddaughters!)

Worry vs. Faith – December 8 Devotions

It seems like every Christmas season since then has been difficult for one reason or…

On Giving and Receiving – December 3 Devotions

My gratitude continues throughout the year, not just in November, and today I am thankful circumstances are considerably better this year for the Christmas season than they have been for the past 3 years or so. I’m working on getting out and putting up decorations, playing Christmas music, preparing to wrap presents that have started arriving from online shopping… really looking forward to family gatherings during this giving season this year!  After all, God loved us so much that He…
