Good morning Folks ~ It is another gray day here with more rain predicted today and over the next few days. It rained most of the day yesterday and some of the day before, which was a good time to get Christmas decorations out of the attic. I decided my main tree would be the ‘Charlie Brown’ tree we found curbside in Sept. 2012. I put a small one in my space here where I create and blog, and there’s a tiny one in the bedroom.
I made up collages using PicMonkey. The top two pics are of the one in my space. The bottom right is the CB tree, and bottom left the one in the bedroom.
A widow friend of mine, dear Sue D., who has been a widow longer than me, gave me this lovely ornament my second Christmas without my DH. It is oh so true.
I want to thank all of you how have been following me through the years, for your friendship, love, hugs, prayers, your encouragement. You are a blessing to me. You have made this widow walk not so lonely. I thank God for you, and am thankful that He is with me and never leaves me. He is my strength when I am weak. He has sent all of you into my life.
I will be setting up the nativity and heavenly host in the next week or so.
Christmas is a time to remember that God Himself, left His heavenly throne, became a human babe so that one day when the time was right, He would give Himself as a sacrifice for all the sin man has done, keeps doing, and will do until He returns again. Because He rose from the grave, we have been promised life eternal when we believe in Him and what He has done. He loves each and every one of us, no matter what we have done. His love and mercy covers us and washes us clean. We become spotless and will live forever with Him, where there is no more sin, no pain, no death, no sadness. All will be well.
Until then let us trust Him and thank Him for the gift of every day that He blesses us with.
Love, hugs & prayers ~ FlowerLady
