Christmas Day is less than one week away and our family has been busy. Making some real cute felt ornaments and I am unable to currently post. I broke my camera several weeks ago. Hoping to get a new camera by the first of the New Year.
Praying that God is the focus of this Christmas season. Remember He is the Reason for the Season!!!
In my life there are so many things, people and events to be joyful and thankful about. On November 14th the Lord took my mother to be with him in heaven. Yes, it has been a tough couple of weeks but God gave me some good moments in between. 1) My mom made sure I received her first bible that she received in 1948 from her grandmother. 2) Thanksgiving day was filled with wonderful old friends and a new one we got to know better. 3) We decorated our entire home the day after Thanksgiving with our beautiful Christmas decorations. 4) I have precious friends who checked in on me and have prayed for my family during my mother's funeral. 5) God has blessed me with homeschooling my children.
Matthew 5:1-20 give me such great hope and comfort in this world filled with many troubles and trials. Personally it's not fun but, I would not want it any other way. My God uses these moments to refine me more into his image, as time goes by.
May God give you peace and comfort if you are in the midst of many hardships this day.
