my tired candlesWe had a perfect night with our church family at our Open House Christmas Party.  There were about 30-35 of us.  We had great food, drinks and fellowship mixed with plenty of love and laughter.

p.s.  ~some of those candles look a little like I feel.  🙂

Sunday Inspiration!

nativityI have recently been welcomed to participate in two shows this coming summer.
The Farm Chicks & MaryJane’s Farm Fair
These will be new shows for me and I feel so blessed to be asked to participate…blessed, excited and scared for  this addition to my busy life.  It’s going to add some craziness and I’m always trying to keep inspired in the area of better time management.  I was sharing my excitement (& some fears) this week with a sister-in-blogging, and she shared some words with me that I hope I can really take to heart…
” I know this will be a lot of work for you; but God gave you this talent and He will be right with you the whole way!  I just always ask everyday that He help make me a hard worker like He is.  Can you imagine having to work hard answering all those prayers, making sure the sun sets at the right time; this place needs snow and rain, I mean the guy has his hands full! 🙂  And I am grateful for it! “

I told Teresa, it had never dawned on me to ask God to bless me with His work ethic…I need His touch in that area!

living healthyI found this in an old textbook.  My biggest problem is that I prefer to ‘work for happy feelings’.  So I guess it’s all good!

Today is our Christmas open house for our church family.
