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.

Blessings

Another Christmas has come and gone, and I am blessed to have gotten to spend it with my hubby in our snug little home.
No one can make me more CRAZY, but I am thankful to still have him with me.  He goes back for a CT scan on Wednesday, the 28th, and if all checks out well, he should get his 4th 2-day session of chemotherapy.  This month has been up and down as far as how well he's felt, but we keep moving forward with our faith in our HEALER, Christ Jesus.

On Christmas Eve, we had several interesting visitors.  First, with a light rain coming down around midday, I glanced out the back window and spied a long line of wild turkeys waddling their way out of or side woods and making their way into my lower back yard.  I had never seen even ONE on our land, so this was a jaw-dropping moment.  I counted an even dozen of them, including 2 large Tom turkeys.  They made their way up to the Oak tree above, near the garden, and feasted on the many acorns  in the grass, until the rain got heavy enough to run them back into the woods.

Later, after dark, I went outside to get some Christmas decorations from our shed, and heard a noise to the left of the back porch where I was standing.  Shining my flashlight in that direction, I found 4 deer heading toward the woods.  They had been eating the acorns that had fallen from another Oak up closer to the porch.  When I went out a second time an hour later, they were back up there again.   I just thanked my LORD Jesus for my Christmas Eve guests.

Hubby and I then spent Christmas Day alone, with a wonderfully excited call from our daughter and her household.  We have everything we need, and peace on top of that, so what more can we ask.
