“One response was given by the innkeeper when Mary and Joseph wanted to find a room where the Child could be born. The innkeeper was not hostile; he was not opposed to them, but his inn was crowded; his hands were full; his mind was preoccupied. This is the answer that millions are giving today. […]

Angel Tree needs you!

Thursday, December 10th, 2009

Angel Tree is short gifts for 50,000 children this year.  There’s a map on this page showing each state that still needs help. You can provide a gift for one child for about $35.20, but you can also give any amount by going to this page. The rest of this post is my old recycled […]

Almost human!!!

Thursday, December 10th, 2009

Thank you for praying. I don’t remember ever feeling this miserable! It was a solid 72 hours of misery. Today, I’m very tired and my throat still is a bit sore and I’m still coughing. I also still had a fever this morning. I won’t be out in public for awhile. BUT! I almost feel […]

Maybe tomorrow?

I’m starting to think I’ll never get better and will be stuck on the couch the rest of my life! I haven’t even read or knit–that is SICK! Here’s something I forgot to add to the “outside the frame” feature last week. I just love it! I’d probably never take the time to do it, […]

Still Miserable!

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

I hope you’ll forgive me for not blogging. I can’t even think straight right now. I have chills, aches, fever, cough, sore throat! I’ve been very miserable. Poor James has been my nurse. “Get mommy some juice.” “Can you cover mommy up?” The chills and sore throat are the worst–although the aches are right up […]

Works of God

1. Our immune systems are a blessing to me. I’m currently waiting for mine to kick in! I came down with chills, aches, fever, and sore throat instantly about 7:30 tonight! Weird. I’ve doctored myself up with lots of stuff and am hoping I’m alive on Monday morning! 2. We were able to get an […]

Almighty Unchangeable God

I’ve enjoyed sharing some of my favorite music with you. I think I first heard this song at my brother’s church. It’s enough to give me goosebumps! Here’s an example this beautiful song. (I typed the lyrics while I listened. Hopefully, I didn’t mess them up too badly!) 1. Who spread out the clouds before […]

From Outside the Frame

Friday, December 4th, 2009

Sorry this is late today! The homeschool group caroled at the retirement home and I had to get out of the house early this morning. Here’s a great video to show Continental knitting. I haven’t figured that out yet. Do any of you knit that way? I made this candy to take for our gathering […]

Car Stuff

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

Remember all the fun car stuff I had to deal with while Lee was in prison? I’m incredibly grateful for the cars that were provided for us and for those who helped me keep them running, but man! They’ve been cantankerous! At this time, Lee and I do not own one car that runs. We […]

Favorite Christmas Music?

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

What songs do you like to hear at this time of year? I pretty  much love all of them. Sacred Christmas carols are at the top of the list though. I made a list on Amazon with some of my favorite Christmas CD’s last year. I like Angels We Have Heard on High, Joy to […]
