Praise !

"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"

The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.

Well, the mad rush to make the perfect gift is over for another year !

We had a very nice, quiet, WHITE Christmas. 
We got just the right amount of snow, praise the LORD !  

About an inch covered most of the grass, but left the roads clear for travel.  Hubby and I joined my brother Jeff and his family for Christmas day dinner, after spending a quiet morning with the window curtains open to watch the snow softly falling. 

Gifts under the tree were very generous, and we are appreciative to everyone who remembered us with greetings, or cards, or packages.  You are so dear !

















As for decorating, we started out by cutting down a wee, little Cedar tree at the edge of our lot here, but after a week of inside heat, it was so brittle that it was a lethal weapon to be around.
So, out came the little 1 foot, stand-by, artificial tree that has served me well before.  We just adorned it with the few handmade, leather ornaments that hubby-dear made back around 1984, and a couple of others that couldn't be left off.

I must mention that Kelley, my daughter, took the hint and bought my Christmas gifts from my Etsy favorites that are displayed in my sidebar.  I got yummy new charm squares and triangles to play with, and my head is spinning trying to decide what I'll make !
Waiting for that inspiration to hit, I spent a few hours yesterday and today knitting Piper a new sweater.  I left the armholes plain, without picking up stitches for sleeves, as it seemed that they would just hinder the movement of her little bitty legs.  I see from the photo that the armholes look a little odd, so I may try to knit just a couple or so rows there.
