|It's got to be the morning after...see my pasty, white complexion, |
beady eyes and dazed expression?
A week is not complete without coffee with a friend so I had a lovely coffee chat with a sweet sister at one of my fave places for such ~ Cool Beans Cafe on Wednesday!
Library find of the week:
|I really enjoyed reading this fictional account by Lois Untermeyer about the holy family|
one year later living as refugees in a foreign land with a tiny babe.
|Every year I get one new Christmas CD and this year was a beautiful instrumental |
which both my daughter and I adored! Hub prefers more contemporary stuff!
Christmas Eve service was beautiful and the reading of Isaiah 53 brought me to tears- as it always does. Our patient Pastor competed with a bleating lamb but she was silent at just the right time! The children loved it very well, and I consider myself as one! When that little lamb was placed before us, it stirred within my heart such deep grief, pain and joy. All of the prophecy came alive within me. It is beyond words to describe.
|The reading of Isaiah over a bleating sheep stirred the heart.|
|"Flower" safe in the arms of her very own good shepherd!|
She is just 10 days old and has made her acting debut to
glorify the Lord!
A morning visit to a certain special Grandparent brought forth a new family member
to my future Fashion Designer (?) daughter and much fun ensued.
Introducing Mary Kate - Barbara!
But more importantly the most precious of all coveted gifts ...
After Christmas Eve service, we had a quiet night together
which included laughter, and Charades.
Miraculously, sweet daughter was happy to open one gift
and we all hunkered down before midnight
for good night's rest.
Christmas Day we visited family and I had an epiphany which
I will share in a post later this week.
Did anyone read Daily Bread's perfect portion that day? I really liked that share!
Now IS the time to worship! Yes!
Don't forget, there is time to enter for a chance
to receive a Jesus Calling Devotional Bible
(Winner to be drawn New Years Eve!)
Goodbye 2011, Hello 2012!
|Now, we prepare for the new year and say goodbye to the old.|
What are your hopes and dreams for the New Year, friends?
Have a great last week of 2011!
