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!!!!

    happy birthday
