Blessed Merry Christmas!

Hi Crafty Friends! Just wanted to wish you a Blessed Merry Christmas! I have finished baking, candy making, and dress making. Now I am off to wrap gifts. I'm hoping to make "New Year's" cards in the next week though getting them finished & sent is another issue. LOL! I'll post pictures of Natalie's new dress that I finished around 2:30 a.m. today. Praise God for Sonic Happy Hour with 1/2 price Cokes to keep Mom awake!

My husband rode his motorcycle in near freezing temps with close to hurricane force winds. He is questioning his sanity. We did that long ago. LOL!

In the busyness of gifts and fun and wrapping and turkey and all that this holiday entails, I pray that you will find a moment to spend celebrating and adoring the reason for the season, Jesus Christ, our Savior. One of my favorite Christmas Cards had this on it, and I will leave you with these thoughts to ponder:

If our greatest need
had been information,
God would have sent us an educator.

If our greatest need
had been technology,
God would have sent us a scientist.

If our greatest need
had been money,
God would have sent us an economist.

If our greatest need
had been pleasure,
God would have sent us an entertainer.

But our greatest need
was forgiveness,
so God sent us a Saviour.

My husband wants to take me for a ride on his 4 wheeler, but I say I can wait until May!
