Today's Gifts

  • Waking at 5:00am - the house is quiet - time to spend with the Lord before Brillo Man and Olivia arise for the day.

  • Getting out the door and on our way to our adventure without me having ten fits about something.

  • Standing in the ticket line at Splash Lagoon...someone approaches us from behind and says that they have extra tickets which they're not using and would we like them?...saved us $140 in the admission price for four tickets!! God you are so good!

  • Spending the day at Splash Lagoon with Stephanie. She drove from New York just to join us in some fun!

  • Sitting in Splash Lagoon's hot tub most of the day...relief for my aching knees!

  • Eating dinner at Steak n' Shake and laughing so hard that my sides hurt while listening to Brillo Man's comic relief!

  • Brillo Man driving home the hour-long drive so that I could sleep in the van. I rarely am able to sleep in the van. Tonight, I was exhausted. I slept!

  • Carrying home a cargo of gifts sent from my in-laws...can't wait to open them tomorrow!

  • Arriving home to find that the wood stove was still smoldering and it didn't take much to get the fire going again...the house is now toasty warm!

  • Donning my flannel PJs and crawling into bed for a long night's rest! (that's what's about to happen just as soon as I click "PUBLISH POST")

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,
and comes down from the Father of lights,
with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.
-James 1:17

Hello Deb,
I have been admiring your creations at ETSY.
You really do something special.
The Much pendant and the Chinese Lady (print) were favorites.

I wish you and your family a Blessed and fruitful New Year.
From Felisol
