Merry Christmas

Here are my notes from tonights' Christmas Eve sermon, "The Often Overlooked Gift":

Why did Mary go with Joseph? 9 months pregnant and riding on a donkey? Joseph had to go. Back then an Inn was really a campground with a surrounding wall. In the center was likely a well and those who had any money probably had a tent. Not the most private place to deliver a baby. The stable was a cave - much better and more private. God always proides what we need when we need it. These are gifts of Gods' grace. God is present in our lives all the time. He is as near as the air we breathe. Whether we believe or are aware of it or not. Gods' grace is there. Let's try to be aware of His gift in our daily lives.

I finally finished!

WOOHOO!!! I finally got this years' Christmas cards done and mailed out! I did manage to get a couple pictures before they left on their journey.

As soon as I saw the Cardinal Christmas stamp I knew I had to have it. I don't think I ever coveted ANYTHING that much in my life! LOL!!! I just love cardinals.

The cards for this year are very simple flat cards. I was able to mail them with one stamp [each]. Hope you like them!

Crazy Weather!!!

When I say crazy weather I mean uber crazy! Here in south Texas we don't get much snow - hard ever in fact. But yesterday's temps were all over the place! We had a high of 85F in the afternoon. A northern wind came in around 3 pm and by 9:30 last night we were getting rain, sleet, and snow! See - I told ya! CRAZY!!!

There's a wonderful flower farm about 45 minutes north of here in Wimberley, TX. It's the Arnosky Family Farm. It's a fresh cut flower farm which provides flowers for several grocery stores in San Antonio, Austin, and Houston. They sent out an e-mail this morning with a picture from their farm. PROOF!

It's not a lot and it won't stay very long - but it's PROOF!

Today it's supposed to get up to 55 but be windy. So I'm staying in doing laundry, got a pot roast in the slow cooker - it smells so yummy in here already - and FINALLY starting on my Christmas cards. Normally I've got those in the mail by December 1st, really slacking this year!
