The best little Christmas EVER…..

I can honestly say that Christmas 2010 was the BEST Christmas. You ask why? 


I spent Christmas with every family member!  for the first time- in forever…. we were all together. It was fun from the beginning to the end. Here are visions of Christmas…..

Angels we have heard on high….

Every one needs a angel(or two) to watch over them. I received the most special little gift this week from one of my most special friends. Lavon is like a sister to me and has been apart of  my life since I was 16 years old – that makes her one of my oldest friends. I have had the fortune of calling her friend for 37 years – wow that makes me crazy to think about that.

God has been so faithful  and has sent me some very special angels to my life in the last 2 weeks- I stand amazed – I really don’t know why – God is always in control!


I want you to meet the angel that will stand beside my Bed to remind me I am never alone- that God sends Angels into my life to watch over me.


  Thank you my “forever” friend…..

                                I love it but most of all I love you!

Let your light shine….

I don’t remember the moon up above EVER being as Beautiful as it has been this week. I wonder if it was this bright when the Wise Men followed the star to the Manger? I believe the Lords Love is shining bright as ever this Christmas- Thank you dear Lord.

The light of the world is shining down on my little home.


“I am King of King and Lord of lords, dwelling in dazzling bright light! I am also your Shepherd, Companion , and Friend-the One who never lets go of your Hand”.

                 Thank you for that promise Lord

I Lay it at the Manger….

maryDear Lord,

I lay at the manger

  • Betrayals & lies
  • Fears
  • A Broken heart
  • A Heart that needs to forgive
  • The past

Help me to never forget

  • You came into this world in a lowly manger to take the pain all away
  • .You came to wash me white as the Christmas snow.
  • You came to give me a life to live abundantly
  • You came to give me a bright future and eternal life!
  • You alone hold my future in your hands

As the lights of Christmas sparkle you are my light in the darkness.

I will count my blessings and name them one by one- every day of my life and at the top is you my Savior of the World-

         You came to be the JOY to the WORLD.

Coming before you on a bended knee and adoring heart-


Dreaming of a White Christmas..


Just like the ones I use to know – like last year!


Instead I will just have to dream and wish I lived in a snow Village…

Wishing you a White Christmas or at least the Dream of one-
