A December to Remember!!!

December 2012.....
....I do believe it will be one that will be forever etched into the memory of our family.  This is the year that Pappy got a brand new job doing something totally different than he has ever done before.  God answered several of our concerns by bringing him this working at nights....and no working on SONday's.  It's also a job that ministers to others....helping them with their needs, and that was also something that we had prayed for.  We had felt for quite some time that he was being led into some kind of "ministry", and had prayed it would be something that would be an income....and God provided!!!  Wasn't it totally a Godincidence that he was given a job opportunity exactly one year from the date that he lost his other one?  

Ain't God good?
Oh, yes He is!!!!

December 2012.....
....this will also be the year that we will get to meet our very first GRAND-daughter....Miss Ruby Kate.  We've seen lots of pictures (I'm sorry I cannot share them with you yet....not until she's on American soil), but I want to see her precious little face next to those of our GRANDsons!!!  I cannot wait to get to hold her in my arms and tell her how much we already love her.  I didn't think we would ever have a GRAND-daughter....but God saw different!!!

Ain't God good?
Oh, yes He is!!!

December 2012.....
....will be the year that our CHRISTmas tree will be entirely different than anything we've ever had in the past.  I'm going to "decorate" it similar to one at our church.  It's simply the same pre-lit tree we've used for several years....but this year the only "decoration" will be a simple "crown" on the top.  The one at church also has a hammer and 3 nails laying at the base of it.  It so touched my heart and since this year has been one that we can look back on and see God's hand all over it....I want our tree to be dedicated entirely to HIM!!!

Ain't God good?
Oh, yes He most certainly is!!!

Hope your December is blessed, Sweet Reader!!!!

In HIS Most Precious Love....and with mine, too!!!



  1. Celebrating and Praising God with you. December is always a bad month work wise for my son in law and this year is no exception, please God he will provide a suitable job for him soon.

  2. What blessings Our Lord is sending your way as we prepare to honor the birth of His Son and our Savior! Merry Christmas indeed!! Praise Him! :0)

  3. I am completely in love with the idea of having just a crown on the top of your tree. I think I'll do this for our tree next year, since we've already decorated our tree for this year. You have had a blessed year my sweet friend! Merry Christmas!


Gracious words are a honeycomb,
sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
