What I know this December morn....



that we are loved immensely by our Creator, enough for Him to sacrifice His only Son so that we can live eternally in Heaven above....

that I'm thankful for so many blessings in my life, thankful for good times and even the bad ~ as trying times make us appreciate the good so much more and build character within us.....

that my family is precious. Each and every member ~ I'm blessed with a wonderful husband and five amazing sons...a sweet daughter-in-law and an angel of a granddaughter. I miss those who are no longer with us and cherish their memory.
I am so thankful for times spent together in the past.

that friends are the bread of life. They sustain you, they lift you, they cheer you....they inspire you ~ As I tip-toe through your blogs, I see your heart and soul, how much you love your family and how much you share with others. Where would we be without our friends?

....thank you precious friends, for all you are to me.

I am fairly new to your blog, and I am enjoying getting to know you more, Dawn. Not only is your blog lovely, but your spirit is lovely, too, and I thank you for your sharing today. God has given us His precious Son as our Gift of salvation, and your words today reminded me to take the time to ponder all He has done.

Thank you, dear Dawn, for your encouraging words in this post. It's been a difficult year. I know these things, and could recite them back to you, but we can never hear about the love of our savior enough. He is the One who sustains me.
Merry, merry Christmas, Dawn, and blessings upon blessings in the coming year.

DAWN, YOUR POST BROUGHT TEARS TO MY EYES. IT DOES SEEM THAT THIS TIME OF YEAR CAUSES US TO REFLECT MORE ON OUR BLESSINGS AND TO THINK MORE ABOUT THOSE LOVED ONES THAT ARE NO LONGER WITH US. I LOVE THAT SO MANY OF US CARRY ON THE TRADITIONS THAT WE WERE RAISED WITH AND TRULY TREASURE THE MEMORIES AND SENTIMENT OF THE CHRISTMAS SEASON.

THANK YOU FOR THE KIND COMMENT ON MY BLOG.

HAVE A HAPPY AND MERRY WEEK, JUDY
