As I open this Add a New Post page it is 8:49; late to be starting a post but ….
Yesterday’s birthday celebration was beyond lovely! To have my beloved JT with me all day just the two of us to do whatever we wanted was a tremendous gift to me. I am blessed and grateful.
And now it is December 18 with no Christmas tree in the den – wonder if I could just enlarge this picture and hang it by the fireplace? 🙂 No place like the Grand Hotel in Point Clear, Alabama.
And no place like HERE. Here where a few more gifts are waiting to be purchased and more than a few to be crafted, furniture to dust, shrimp to pick up, shrimp to clean, gumbo to make – that’s the most important food item according to my Babies – mousse pie, chicken and dressing, etc. etc. oh and a new dish: Dijon potato salad – got to find a recipe that seems close to the one at yesterday’s lunch. Oh I have plenty of time 🙂
For many days now I have been thinking about my Christmas Prayer gift to place in our JESUS gift box. A tradition started 13 years ago. There is some preciousness in that box!! I treasure what this box means to us – I never put it away; it’s an all year-long presence at the Thompson house. There’s a lesson there, I think.
I’ve rambled on enough – the morning is getting away. Christmas Love to you my Friends.
ABBA, I pray these verbal ramblings will be acceptable and useable to You, HOLY SPIRIT, to encourage, inspire and draw us all nearer to Your Holy Manifest Presence, LORD YESHUA. Thank You for coming and for always being with us. Amen and amen.
