Merry Christmas

                                                                A Christmas Creed
I believe in Jesus Christ and in the beauty of the gospel begun in Bethlehem. I believe in the One whose spirit glorified a little town, and whose spirit still brings  music to persons all over the world, in towns both large and small. I believe in the One for whom the crowded inn could find no room, and I confess that my heart still sometimes wants to exclude Christ from my life today. I believe in the One who the rulers of the earth ignored and the proud could never understand; whose life was among common people, whose welcome came from persons of hungry hearts.  I believe in the One who proclaimed the love of God to be invincible. I believe in the One whose cradle was a mother's arms, whose modest home in Nazareth had love for its only wealth, who looked at persons and made them see what God's love saw in them, who by love brought sinners back to purity, and lifted human weakness up to meet the strength of God. I confess my ever-lasting need of God. The need of forgiveness for our selfishness and greed, the need of a new life for empty souls, the need of love for hearts grown cold. I believe in God who gives us the best of Himself. I believe in Jesus, the Son of the Living God, born in Bethlehem this night, for me and for the world.

                                           Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year to all!!

I am still here....

I can't believe how long its has been since my last post.. :)  
Lots of things have happened since then.  A good friend of my husband and I took a fall and at 95 it has slowed him down.He did not break anything but now he needs a walker.   He has always been a very active 95 year old man so it has been hard on him to ask for help.  He is a dear sweet friend who is like family to us.   So my van has been making lots of trips between his house, my moms house,seeing Dr's,  and all mine and their

When I do have some time at home I have been decorating .....some of my favorite ornaments

There are lots more but that would be way to many photos.

Went to Erika's and Andrew Christmas programs..
They both did a wonderful job!!
Baking cookies and cleaning house this week and it is flying by way to fast.
I have a few more photos to share around the house but that will be another post. It is late and I am heading off to bed.
