Wednesday's Word - Inspiration.....

This word just came to me yesterday, somewhat out of the blue.
Although, I always like to think God gives me the word He wants shared.

As I kind of pondered on that word,
people in my life who have been a great inspiration to me came to mind.
One of them is my friend, Teresa, who passed away earlier this year.
I had the privilege of sharing her testimony with a lady who was helping me out at the bank yesterday and how Teresa said that "God is going to heal me of this cancer, or take me home.  Either way, I'm a winner."

What about you?
Is there someone in your life who has been a real inspiration?

Three in One.....

The Trinity.....

it's somehow difficult to explain that God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are all the same.....
yet, they are separate.

To the non-Christian, this probably makes absolutely no sense at all.
Even to us who have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior.....
well, for me anyway.....
it can be confusing if we try to get somebody else to understand.

Several years ago, I heard a minister explain it so well,
so I thought I would share it to you.

Let's take Pappy for instance.
He's a man.....
but he's also a husband, a Dad, and a Grandfather.

That statement just settled into my heart and gave me such a better understanding of the Trinity.....

Three in One!



(also, the book "The Shack"  by William Paul Young really helped, too.
It's not for everybody, because some people just wouldn't understand the portrayal of the Three.....
but since I'm such a visual person, it helped me tremendously)

SONday Morning Song - O, Holy Night.....

Today, our daughter and son-in-law celebrate their 13th wedding anniversary.
It was such a beautiful ceremony.
Jess asked me to be her matron of honor,
because in her words I was her best friend!
(still makes me tear up to ponder on that memory)

The minister who performed the ceremony was also a family friend.....
with an awesome singing voice.....
and he sang this song at their wedding!!!

Sweet memories!

Happy, happy anniversary to our kids!!

Whatever your hand finds to do.....

Ecclesiastes 9:10
Whatever your hand finds to do, 
do it with all your might.

(cell phone pics, so not very good quality)

Since HOPE is my favorite word,
I couldn't pass up these stove eye covers
(2 in a pack at Dollar Tree).
I simply used a dab of hot glue here and there and attached the smaller one to a grapevine wreath I already had on hand.



A hat a lady from church asked I make for her Mom.....
with me as the "model"!!!
;-)



A sweet friend of Jess' who adopted a little boy.....
who by the way is named Silas David.....
asked for a dinosaur hat for her Silas!



A friend of mine who loves all things Mickey Mouse hinted for and got this for CHRISTmas.....



As you can tell, I've been kinda busy!!!

So what about you?
What have your hands been finding to do this CHRISTmas season?

Hope everybody has a Special Saturday!

Friday Fotos.....

I don't do quite as much decorating as I used to.
I actually am planning to go through all my seasonal decorations next summer and donate a lot of them.
(because they're stored in our cold basement)

Pappy bought this little nativity set at a yard sale just for our grand kiddos!
I saw them rearranging it when they were here last night!



This is on top of an old dresser that sits inside our front door.
It was actually my Mom and Dad's first bedroom suite,
and I refinished it many years ago.
The "hurricanes" were made from vases and candle holders purchased at the Dollar Tree and glued together with E6000 glue.
My sis-in-law gave me the rusty "peace".
And, that ship in the background.....
my precious brother made that just for me when he was just a teenager!



This nativity is one of my very favorite CHRISTmas decorations.
Pappy and I bought it the first CHRISTmas after we were married.....
thirty-eight years ago.
It's "Home Interior".
See that stable?
My Daddy and Pappy made that out of paneling that looks like barn wood.
I hot glued Spanish moss to the top.
It just means so much to me knowing my Daddy had his hands on it,
since this will be his 20th year actually celebrating CHRISTmas in heaven.

So, that's that about that.....
a little saying my Mammie used to quote.

HOPE y'all have a Fantastic Friday!

Breathing in Grace,
