Life for a New Year

The New Year is 2012, and already the shepherds have gone back to their sheep, the yearly taxes have been counted, Mary and Joseph with their new born son have to pick up and flee, leaving the comfort of their stable floor of hay and the quiet lowing of animals.  Now they have to listen to human voices chasing, squabbling, and demanding.  But finally with the guidance of angels and a heavenly protection,  they make their way to safety where the parents begin what we call home schooling today!  Mary and Joseph had an awesome task ahead of them as do we as parents and grand parents to teach them in the ways of the Lord,   this was not the most exciting week for me as i had my grandkids, they were so unruly i must say, i don't know what the matter was, and so i admire all the homeschoolers out there who teach their own kids. 

Here is a link I found interesting  The Homeschool Chick  it even has two PINK BIRDS in the ad section!!!

And a CRAFT for the kids and adults to up all those toilette paper rolls!!!! and one other CRAFT to do.  Okay so here are bunnies and flowers to enjoy as a center piece on the table as well for the kids!
but happy new year to you all and a prosperous one in all aspects of living
Happy New Year of

WOW! it is here again! only two more days or one by the time i get this three oldest kids have their birthday on the 25th. Only one is close though so I will make her a Chocolate Caramel cake with vanilla pudding in the middle and whipping cream icing with old fashioned roses for decoration.  i am just about ready.....have to wrap the presents yet! bought one daughter brand new sheets, the other is getting a church cookie jar!  i have always wanted a cookie jar and now that no one is home it remains empty so maybe she will keep it full!   the boys are so far away, i wish they were here too.  I made a big pot of beans and a sweet onion and cranberry cheesecake with sage and garlic.  it is sort of like a quiche.  

The time is here! I wonder what Mary did in preparation for the big trip--on a donkey !!, did she gather some figs to nibble on, where did she get the blanket He would be wrapped in? did Joseph cut the cord as some fathers do today>Did He cry right away?  No one was prepared for the King in those days and now we have a whole year and still there are many last minute things to do,
I made one of these tonite, it turned out so well..........................the ladies did not have Martha Stewart in those days but if they did would they have chosen this gift wrapped package....
or the Shepherds-what would they have wrapped it in............

or the Wise Men....
 whatever the Gift, however it was wrapped, God accepted, even the gift of a humble heart that believed on Him! Even the gift of our voices as we sing the praises of the birth and glory of Jesus.

May each one have a Wonderful Christmas day and the Blessing of Christ be upon each one.

Shepherds and their Sheep

This Friday as I gather my candles together, synomatically their flickering lights, cascading with the softly falling snow brings this evening to a close.  I remember the sounds of majesty the Christmas songs from the satellite radio as i drive the hour to work and then back again.  It is a peaceful evening, and a lonely one, the cat still is adjusting to its new home and is in hiding under the bed.   Sabbath is here.

Here are a couple of blogs you may click as you reflect of shepherds and interesting concepts!!
  Mamabishop    Fire or Blackberries 

 And so my wish is for eveyone happy gift wrapping and enjoyable times with children and families

Christmas trees

Hello all and welcome to my world!  this week i am borrowing pictures from blogs i have found with my favorite looking trees,  as yet i have not put one up so here are others,   i love the chair and country style of this one.
This one is utterly fantastic and one that you want to wear high heels to, and below when outside you can see the heavy frost on rosehip laden branches, such beauty at this time of year!!!

and now for the pink theme  are little minatures that are just perfect for a coffee table or centerpiece,
this year i joined a secret sister club and i forgot to take pictures what i made for her, what a silly person, she is going away to see her family so i made pages with family spaces for her to scrapbook and another Christmas box with the most lovely cookies that were made by a Mennonite bakery.  They are seeded apricot oatmeal cookies.  Don't they sound good!!!
Well have fun this week decorating and crafting and baking
Happy Pink Saturday
ps.  Butteryum  has the most delicious fudge recipes

Happy Pink Saturday

Snowflake season is here and even though winter is a sign of death God has provided beauty and splendor in the form of one little flake that is multiplied by myriads.
What does a snowflake do????
  •   nice and fluffy and soft
  • melt on your tongue in a flash
  • snowmen and angels
  • warmth and cold at the same time
  • insulation for the house and outside plants
  • makes the greatest snowcones
  • a biblical analogy for washing our sins as white as snow
  • well, how many others can you think of  .....please email me!!!!

    Thankful for the blessing of Sunshine

    The Lord shall help the needy- i pray that all those that are hungry, lonely, the fatherless, be helped this day, to comfort and fulfill their needs.  i like this song with its thanksgiving and promise.

    I am thankful for the sun this morning, it is so cold here~20 below and windy.  there is four feet of snow in the mountains but here at home we have about an inch or two.  When the sun comes out i love the reflections and cheerful brightness it leaves all over, here is the reflection in my kitchen window

    the heart in the middle of the window was made by my oldest daughter when she was in grade one, how long ago was that!!!!! almost 20yrs ago!!!! it has always been on my window!!!
    i think i put this here because there was still beet juice on the window and it is PINK, so can you see the pink spots  heheh!
    And Thru my Pink Curtains!!!!! can see the sunlight on the trees, frost on the window and now it is time to decorate the house for Christmas!!!!
    Happy Pink Saturday all......................

    Habakkuk 3:17-19.

    Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines,
    Though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food,
    Though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls,
    Yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
    I will be joyful in God my Savior.
    The Sovereign Lord is my strength;...

    Another Day in Winter

    Friday Rolls around again after a week of slush and snow and driving thru it to work and back  But i am thankful for safety, protection and the ability to drive.  Others were not quite so fortunate as there was a huge accident above town here where trucks collided and one did not survive. 

    I look out my kitchen window and notice how red the strawberry plants are and have to wonder how the poppies bloom, maybe he thought they were poppies when they were really strawberry plants.  Oh well, no matter, to day is the day we all remember the fallen, the survivors and their offspring, the legacy each one will have,   the knowledge that our worst fears  by war happening again is already realized in other parts of the world.  it will happen again. and this time we have got to know that it could be the second coming of Jesus.  are we ready?   will we fight to the end and remember the many stories we hear on TV/books/stories  how people were brought thru war by angels, by kindness, by miracles, by memories, by nature , the tiny things that make us remember God is still alive thru all the torn things in this world.  We open our eyes and still see beauty!!!!!  do you see the little purple pansies in the pictures!

    Well!  it is birthday time again and my little granddaughter is growing up into a great girl. a very grown up girl in her thinking and taking responsibility as an older child, looking after her home and brother and reasoning things out,  it is so interesting to watch and yet there is still the little girl in her that makes her adorable.....

    everything had to be PINK, what else!!!  the only color is pink!!!!

    so inside this lovely looking cake that i decorated it is a very bright pink

    with a special cookie with pink icing and pink flowers and a pink bow

    Fall Colors and happenings

    its the end of October and sabbath is here, i have the grandkids for the weekend and we are doing lots of things, we collected leaves, made cookies, made cards, colored masks and pictures, Rhys already stood in the corner because he was screaming,  it would have been easier to put the paper in the garbage but instead he took the long way around.  i guess that is a boys prerogative!!!!    we also ran around the house five times and today we will run around again.  
    Bus here are some other pinks too, hope you enjoy the fall colors...........and rosehips, we have so many this year...........

    our princess and of course the prince in waiting too is making cookies and you can see they are wearing grandmas aprons,   she has her pink princess dress on, which is the favorite of everyday and all hours,  hope you notice the pink butterfly cookie cutter too!!!!!
    HAPPY PINK SATURDAY AND  keep posted, i will have a delectable recipe posted for you later as we come back from a walk.....thank you!!!!!

    Pink Skies

    The best things in life are nearest:
    Breath in your nostrils,
    light in your eyes,
    flowers at your feet,
    duties at your hand,
    the path of right just before you.
    Then do not grasp at the stars,
    but do life's plain, common work
    as it comes,
    certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life.
    ~Robert Louis Stevenson

    this is outside my bedroom window which i opened to have a peek what the weather was like, what a wonderful sight, lots of pink beyond the screen!!! , there is the pink and white fluff of the fireweeds, morning sunrise is always pink, and of sorts the scarlet runners that are just starting to grow after our wet and cold summer.
    this morning a huge brown bear, a grizzly someone said, passed in front of this window but he dissappeared to fast for me to take a picture, i hope he comes again in the morning!!

    we are having a quite warm evening now, so nice to be able to sit out on the porch and enjoy the night air.
    good nite
    and keep safe from all your storms
    i meant to put a pic here that i saw as i was going to work at 7 am, this rainbow stretched for 30km or so and lasted for two hours!! so unusual but amazing.  while a friend and i stood there at work watching, it moved from behing to in front of the mountain!  i mentioned that it was right over her house!!, she said yeah, maybe i will win the lottery  hahha...
    well it may not be an exciting rainbow but for us it was because i have never seen a rainbow at seven in the morning before!!!!

    happy birthday
