Christmas Blessings, Dear Friends!

From Our House to Yours.....
We Wish You A Very Peaceful & Beautiful Christmas!
                                     Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel!  

This month, as we prepared our hearts in Advent, for the celebration of our Savior's birth on Christmas Day, we have also prayed for another miracle.  Our oldest son, Ryan, who was born on Christmas Eve, was stricken very ill in early December, and hospitalized in serious condition.  Praise God, that, Ryan was discharged in stable, but weakened condition yesterday!  We are so thankful for the many prayers offered for his recovery and that he will now join our family in celebration of both, his birthday and Christmas Day!

As you can imagine, I have not been able to concentrate very well this month, and all of my stitching projects were put away, except for one or two ornaments that I stitched in some peaceful moments.

This beautiful ornament arrived in the mail
yesterday from my very dear stitching friend, Donna.
Isn't the back of Donna's ornament just beautiful?
I love the beautiful silver snowflake!
Thank you so much, Donna!  Hugs!

The "Hidden Gift of Christmas"
Tucked among the branches of 
Our Christmas Tree.

On that First Christmas, so long ago, "The goodness & loving kindness of God our Savior appeared" (Titus3:4), born in a lowly manger.  The humble shepherds, keeping watch over their sheep, by night, recognized their Savior, and came with their sheep, and bowed down before Him, giving thanks to God.  
May you be blessed, as you celebrate the miracle of our precious Savior's birth, this Christmas.  God Bless You Always!

Consider the Lilies of the Field
"So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the Lilies of the Field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, that even Solomon in all his glory, was not arrayed like one of these." Matt: 6: 28-29)
