Have a Praising Sunday


*
Happy Sunday Afternoon Sweet Friends,
*
Hope all of you had a Most Wonderful Christmas Celebration!
and that you are recooping from all that hard prep work.
*
We had two days of sheer delight with our family,  and lots of
great food, games, movies and leftovers,  Yea!!
Want have to cook for a few days.........works for me!!
*
Yesterday it was dismal and cold so we stayed in our
jammies all day and just lounged around,  boy,  was
that fun!!  Also watched polar express,  that is such
a cute movie!!
*
Oh yea,  Guess what???????? Hubby bought me a new
camera,  and my kids also bought us a camera,  so they said
we should take it back and get the money and do something
fun together,  so when the lines go down in about a week,
we will do that!
*
I have been using my sister-in-laws camera since I broke
mine way back months ago, can't remember when,  but for
 quite a while now,  and have really grown to love it, 
 and I was worried,  because you see,  I am somewhat
Pitifully technically challenged and do not have to learn another
new way of doing things,  but much to my bliss,  it is not hard
to work at all,  and I love it just as much! 
*
 It's a Samsung SL502.
Haven't had a lot of time to take too many pics yet,  but
sure seems like it is gonna be easy and produce very nice
pictures.  Just what the Dr. Ordered.
*
And now I can give Susie back her camera...........Thank
you so much for letting me use it for soooooooo long!
It was a true blessing.
*
Well,  guess maybe we will start to visit each other
and leave comments again,  at least after New Years
Day anyway or maybe before.  I have been reading
just not leaving a lot of comments.
*
Well,  hope all is well with each of you,  and that
Christmas was very Special for you!
*
There are still some things that happened
after Jesus was born so..........
I will leave you with these verses from
Luke 2:8-20
*
And there were shepherds living out in the fields
nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.
*
An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the
glory of the Lord shone around them, and they
were terrified.
*
But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid,
I bring you good news of great joy that will be
for all the people.
*
Today in the town of David a Savior has been
born to you; he is Christ the Lord.
*
This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby
wrapped in clothes and lying in a manger."
*
Suddenly a great company of the heavenly
host appeared with the angel,  praising God
and saying,
*
"Glory to God in the highest,  and on earth
peace to men on whom his favor rests."
*
When the angels had left them and gone
into heaven,  the shepherds said to one
another,  Let's go to Bethlehem and see this
thing that has happened, which the Lord has
told us about."
*
So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph
and the baby, who was lying in the manger.
*
When they had seen him,  they spread the
word concerning what had been told them
about this child,
*
and all who heard it were amazed at what the
shepherds said to them.
*
But Mary treasured up all these things
and pondered them in her heart.
*
The shepherds returned , glorifying and
praising God for all the things they had heard
and seen, which were just as they had been told.
*
Hope you have a great Sunday
full of Praise for all God has done
for us!
*
Love, Peace and Joy,
Nellie

Did you tell me you got a camera?? I don't think so. That is so cool! We may hit the stores Tuesday morn for some returns, but tomorrow Mal is having her wisdom teeth pulled and I am taking her, and being nursemaid after.

So glad your Christmas was a blessing!
Talk to you soon! Gotta get your goodies over to ya!! :o)
Love you!

Hey Nellie,
I love the photo at the top of your post.
And I totally identify with being technologically challenged!!!
We just set up our NEW (2 year old computer) because I was too winged out to try and use a computer with "Vista" prior to now!
Once I figure out how to do something I just want to stay with the "tried and true!"
Well, it works in marriage, HA.
I'll stay with the tried and true through thick and thin.
So glad you had a wonderful Christmas Celebration. Blessings.

Hope you are enjoying this week after Christmas! Hubbie and I actually ventured out to the stores last night. Truly - I didn't find much (well..one thing but I'll post about that tomorrow) :)

I'm excited for you about the new camera (well, TWO new cameras)..can't wait to see some of those photos. I've always thought I would like to take a (VERY) simple beginner's photography class. My pictures are so pitiful but I love trying...

Hope you and your sweetie enjoy that "date" soon. Take care -
