Hey There, 2011

...Or, as one of my foster sons loved to say (oh so many years ago):
"Come on in. I ain't scarit of you!"
Put another way....

Greetings, 2011.

With Great Gratitude, we welcome you, another brand new year!
And to our new beginnings of:
  • new days
  • new hopes
  • new achievements
  • new hearts
Now, precious readers,  let us go bravely and expectantly into the new year and:
          …Draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings…”
Hebrews 10:22 (NIV)

May His Peace live in you,

Post-Christmas Blessings

     Christmas is still knocking on our door and keeps bringing many surprises and blessings to us. Tonight, our daughter-in-law drove up to our house with her computer in hand and hooked us up to our granddaughter's family for a (GET THIS!!!) cyber-picture-conversation-face-to-face introduction to our first great grand DAUGHTER. What an experience. Week old Baby is beautiful, Mama is awesome, and Daddy is proud.
     We BELIEVED this Christmas would be quiet but it turned out absolutely opposite. Lots of family, gifts, visits, phone calls, meals and worship shared, lunch with long-time friends, and visits with our Holy Father. Can't be much better!
     Okay. Fess-up time. I must tell you the truth. Do you remember that several days ago, I left my blog posting to go bake cookies? I should have kept writing. Seems that maybe writing is easier for me than baking Christmas cookies.
     My Snickerdoodles were a colossal flop which is a very long story in itself and one best saved for another time. So there were only three meager offerings of Molassas Cookies for Christmas Deliveries.

 However, I'm grateful there are new beginnings--and I WILL try again.

     Suffice it to say that Dear Heart and I are blessed to overflowing by our family and friends.
Belssings from one of our abundant Christmas tables to yours

Makes you wonder what Epiphany will bring!
Christmas Hugs,
