You are probably like me, you look at how few days we have left and wonder how time flew so fast right?
No doubt about it this is time be watching for the sales at the grocery stores.
Buying all the goodies that are required for holiday baking.
I thought this would be a good time to include some of our favorites around here..
so step into my kitchen (excuse the mess =) and we'll get going.
I'm sure that we all have a favorite movies during the Holidays.
You can click my soldier friend to learn about our favorites.
You will also find our favorite "munchies" to bring out while watching!
Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many,
not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.
||Everyone knows their ABC's right?
Here is a slightly different version.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
The candle will take you there.
WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOU FELL DOWN IN THE SNOW AND MADE A SNOWANGEL?
OR HOW ABOUT GETTING A CARROT AND GOING OUT AND PUTTING THE FINISHING TOUCHES ON A SNOWMAN YOU BUILT YOURSELF?
DO YOU REMEMBER BUILDING SNOW FORTS AND TEAMING UP WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND PLAYING ALL DAY?
We all know that the world thinks of the Baby Jesus
at this time of year but we need to remember that he did not stay a baby did he?
No, He became much more than that in His short life here on earth with us.
Will you come with me to see what the Bible says about that very special night?
I hope you don't mind I sort of put the story in my own words. [just click the globe on the left]
MY GIFTS TO THE KING
What shall I give You, my Lord? You have need of nothing!
Like the shepherds, I shall give my listening ear, my watching eyes, My constant expectancy~ Believing Your word, O King of Glory, Trusting the miracle of Your Mercy, The wonder of Your gracious, entrance into Your world!
Like the wise men, I shall lay at Your feet my treasures~ My heart...overflowing with adoration, My spirit...with the joy of appreciation, My mind...renewed daily with Your thoughts, My will ....sweetly abandoned to Yours.
Like the lambs attending Your birth, I shall wait in wonder and worship Laying at Your feet my availability~ An incense, pure and precious, Rising night and day to gladden Your heart, Lord Jesus, Emmanuel~God With Us.
"May my prayer be set before You like perfume... my eyes fixed on You, O Sovereign Lord, Maker of heaven and earth." (Psalm 141:2,8

Music is such an important part of Christmas so i just figured
that I couldn't go wrong with these. My husband on the other hand would rather
I had "fallen in love" with something a little less expensive. =)
I just keep reminding him how much I'm worth it.

who spends anytime creating a webpage like this knows that without the
Graphic Designers, there would be some really dull pages. I began gathering
Christmas Graphics early this summer in hopes of Creating this page.
I didn't make note of where some of them came from.
If you see one of your graphics here please let me know,
I will more than happy to post your site.
Now, that being said I would like to take this time to thank
Lisa, it was her graphics that inspired me to begin a page like this. For starters my speckled background here is in her collection.
So long Charles Schultz,
Thanks for the laughter....and for the unforgettable Christmas special.
What a wonderful surprise! Thanks to all who voted for me!
