Gingerbread Cream and Sugar Set

I am thankful for the great group of ladies that I work with. Today we exchanged some small gifts.

Look at what I got! A gingerbread cream and sugar set. I set in front of them the most blessed name I know!

And here is a towel to match.

God With Us

I am thankful for the reminder this time of year that "God is with us" : Emanuel.
Grateful that when He came he brought redemption that "though our sins be as scarlet, He washes whiter than snow." And the reminder from Him that since He can give us such a fresh, new, clean slate start in life, His same power is available for whatever problems mount up in our life.

December Seventh Thoughts

1.  Happy Birthday to Lorah Ann Ropp Zeigler and Phoebe Elizabeth Goff Rice. Two mothers, birthdays on the same day, different years. Phoebe has been gone for about 48 years and Lorah gone for about 1 1/2 years.

2.  North Carolina is very cold this December. I don't think it was this cold in the winter when we first moved here. Our dog is in the shed, shielded from the wind. Our bunnys' cage is covered with plastic. I unfroze Sophie's (the bunny) water bottle and she drank from it while I held it.

3. We visited with some friends down the road this evening. I am beginning to enjoy this stage of my life, getting together with people my own age.
