Dec 1, 2010 Word Filled Wednesday
Greetings and Holy Kisses,
It's not only Word filled Wednesday but the first day of December! Oh JOY!
Flipping my Gooseberry Patch Calendar was a sweet delight this morning. The count down begins...........! This year, more than anything; I hope to not work myself into a tizzy... and really reflect on the true meaning of CHRISTmas.
Opening day 1 on the potting shed advent calendar, I found a little white dove.
The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. Luke 1:35
The verse above, keeps coming to me through songs, cards, and the word, so I decided to write it out today. I just want to keep soaking in this verse. I wonder if the vintage relative I purchased in the top photo was basking in His presence, or meditating on a special verse in this way as well. I like to think so.
Last night our ladies meeting was postponed, so I started cutting cardstock and folding the pieces into cards for the stockings at church. It was so much fun, and got me anxious to start making my own Christmas cards. Do any of you make your own Christmas cards too?
Don't ask me why I took this picture. I guess because vintage glass Christmas balls just makes me happy. If the paint is chipping, I think it just adds to the charm don't you?
Yesterday, I stopped off at the Cherry Street thrift shop and found this old strand of lights. They actually work, but I'd never be able to trust them, so I'm trying to think of something to make out of them. Any ideas? The plastic bases, and end looks like bakelite. Maybe I should just cut the wires off and make colorful ornaments out of them. Let me know if you have a good idea! Maybe the wires should be cut and they could be added to the bowl of vintage ornaments? Hmmm... what do you think?
Okay, Myguy is waiting for me. We grained the livestock awhile ago, so we're going to bundle up and go for a walk in the dark to let the donkeys out of the corral and then rock on the new porch under the colored Christmas lights. Sounds kinda romantic don't you think? Oooh I hope we have some hot cocoa!
Have a blessed night!
