A treasure…

“I’m just stopping in at Goodwill for a minute since it’s right on my way”, is always my excuse.

This little guy was hidden amongst all the other junky knick knacks on the crowded shelf.

But I spied him and I bought him for 99cents.

I think with this little sprig of holly he may be one of my favorite Christmas decorations this year.


My blog is growing.

I have new followers that I haven’t been able to say welcome to.

Faithful readers leave comments and I’m not always able to respond to tell them I read their comment

and how much it meant to me.


I can only do so much.

But there’s Someone who sees you there in amongst the crowd.

He bought you and was willing to pay an exorbitant price to make you His.

Because you’re His favorite.

Yes, you.


In the midst of these busy days of holiday preparations,

I pray that you are overwhelmed with His great love for you.

I pray that His peace rules your mind and heart.

I pray that His joy becomes your strength when you are weary.

I pray that His love flows through you to the not so easy to love people that are in your life.

I pray that you are healed and whole in body, soul and spirit.

I pray that all of your needs are met above and beyond all you can ask or think.

I pray that your Christmas is the merriest

and your New Year blessed beyond measure.


Love to each of you,
