Christmas Decor

Getting our house ready for Christmas doesn't really take all that long, BUT getting it ready does remind us to get ready and anticipate the coming of our Savior!! I am so glad we have a season to celebrate the greatest gift humanity has ever received...JESUS! God came near!

 We wait expenctantly for His return too! This is the first Christmas we've had a full size tree! I think it looks so cute!

My friend was in town and told me about the Salvation Army Christmas sale....what a find! This tree was a whoppin...$8.50---prelit no less!!

I love having it plugged in and that you can see it through the window from outside.

There is no better news in all the universe! It has hit me really hard this Christmas time though that this year I have so many new brothers and sisters in Christ from around the WORLD!! Joy really has come to the WORLD.

Gospel for Asia has a great way to share God's love in a practical way. Imagine someone coming and giving a GIFT that would double your income for the year?! That would be HUGE! that is exactly what we can do by picking out one of the items from this year's Christmas catalog. Not only does it help the people not struggle so much, it also points them to Christ. So many have become Believer's in Christ by seeing God's love for them through His Body's generosity.

Please click on to be encouraged! You can donate there, watch videos, see pictures and more!!

It's crazy how sharing GOOD NEWS encourages and strengthens your own heart!! I was reminded of this yesterday as I shared with some coworkers. Give it a try!! Share Share Share!!

Cutest Balcony Ever!

One Saturday Wade and I went bought flowers and soil and got our balcony feeling much more homey. I love going out there and seeing the color and cheerfulness they bring!
Angela and I had made a rug for under the kitchen table, but we found that it actually worked better outside and gave our feet somethin nice to rest on! It's our own outdoor room!!
Wade, thanks for being so much fun!!

We have mums, pansies, rosemary and that purple stuff!  :)

Here's some fun pics I took

Trio of Pillows

Right before Thanksgiving I finished up these 3 pillows and sent them home with their new owner. I think they turned out so cute!! I found these great pins that personalized them and added some personality.

These are the first pictures of this pillow I've ever posted.

I love these little pinwheels!

I have more to make....God keeps giving me ideas!! Thanks Lord :)

Happy Birthday Wade!!

Yesterday we celebrated Wade's 26th birthday!!

I just want to take some space here and brag on how wonderful my husband is! He is always there helping me, encouraging me and laughing with me! Helping around the house doesn't put him out. In fact, he's so enthusiastic about getting things done, we have fun! He is a great encourager to me and so many others--always ready to give a kind word. He is so good at taking care of our finances and being generous to those the Lord puts in our lives. I respect him so much. He is the most truthful person I have ever met and I know he always makes decisions with integrity. I trust him completely. I could not have asked for a better friend and helper.

I can't wait to see what the Lord has for Wade in his 26th year of life. I pray he blesses him and draws him closer to Himself.

Make a wish!!

As we get older I think it feels less and less like our birthdays once much excitement! I tried my best to make it feel special though. After we got off work we had pizza, cake and ice cream!!

This was my first time to use this awesome bundt pan!! I call it the "Castle Cake"---ta da!!

YAY for Birthdays!! I love you Wade!
