Jingle All the Way...

I was able to go over the weekend & spend some creative time with some great Christian ladies! Lots of laughs, good food, sharing our stories, some craftiness, & of course a few tears! So here is the project my friend Ruth had for us to make...

I just love it! Thanks Ruth! Can't wait to start decorating for Christmas!

Just a few days until Thanksgiving... and I woke up this morning kind of in a not so great mood! It has been days since we have seen the sun... I know that really affects me, but I really have no reason to be grumpy! So I went to the place I know to find the medicine to cure what ails me.

First Peter 1:6-7 says, " You are extremely happy about these things, even though you have to suffer different kinds of trouble for a little while now. The purpose of these troubles is to test your faith as fire tests how genuine gold is. Your faith is more precious than gold, and by passing the test, it gives praise, glory, and honor to God. This will happen when Jesus appears again."

So after reading this I was reminded that it is time to trade my grumpiness for thankfulness! Speaking words of thankfulness can really turn your mood around! It gives me the chance to focus my thoughts on God's goodness & off of any circumstances that might disturb me! Try it! See how it works for you!
