Scripture Sunday









God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth,
 a town in Galilee,

 to a virgin pledged to be married
 to a man named Joseph, 
a descendant of David. The virgin’s
 name was Mary.
 The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, 
you who are highly favored! 
The Lord is with you.”
 Mary was greatly troubled at his words
 and wondered
 what kind of greeting this might be.
  But the angel said to her,
 “Do not be afraid,Mary; you have found
 favor with God.  You will conceive and
 give birth to a son, and you are to 
call him Jesus.  He will be great and 
will be called the Son of the Most High. 
The Lord God will give him the throne of
 his father David,  and he will reign over 
Jacob’s descendants forever; 
his kingdom will never end.”
 “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel,
 “since I am a virgin?”
35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit
 will come on you, and the power 
of the Most High will overshadow you. So
 the holy one to be born will be called
 the Son of God.

Luke 1: 26-35 NIV



Christmas Blessings,

Scripture Sunday





Thus saith the LORD,
 Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, 
neither let the mighty man glory in his might,
 let not the rich man glory in his riches:
But let him that glorieth glory in this,
 that he understandeth and knoweth me,
 that I am the LORD which exercises
 lovingkindness, judgment, and 
righteousness, in the earth: for in these 
things I delight, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 9:23-24 KJV

Thanksgiving Table 2017
















Hello Sweet Friends,


How are you today......bustling around
getting ready for Christmas I would
bet,  if I was a betting woman.  lol


That is definitely been my week,  all
 the Fall things are packed away and
my house is a discheveled mess as I am
 making my way with the Christmas
decorating.  So not a lot of time today,
as my daughter is coming in tomorrow
for the weekend, so have to get as much
decorating done today as possible, then
sort of clean up the boxes and stuff and
get the guest room ready......

So I just posted all my pics again 
today as I have no time for editing
or choosing pics.......so hope you
enjoy our Thanksgiving table from
this year.  I know it is a lil late
but since we are still in November
figured I would show you.



My daughter gave me this lovely table
cloth for Mother's day so I saved it for
the Fall because of the color scheme.





loved the colors..........







Used scrapbooking stickers
Hence the leaves on the plate
to cover the chocolates.







Here is the centerpc.  Just used what I had.
Did get some hypercum berries which you
 will see later...........cause I had to add to
the centerpc. but had to add them at the
last minute, so to speak.







Had started the centerpc. with just the table
cloth,  but it didn't show up well,  so had
just enough of this green wrapping paper
left,  so decided to use it,  and everything
showed up so much better.
















Love using mixed beans and peas in the 
candleholders and under the pumpkin.







Had a dickens of a time trying to find
coral colored napkins...finally found
these paper ones online at Walmart.
So just used them to wrap around 
white cloth napkins for color.














Pretty peachy coral stemware
used to belong to my late
 mother-in-law and Susan was
 so nice to gift them to me this
year.












The rest are of the centerpc. using
the hypercum berries.....








Discovered the hypercum berries a few
years back at Fresh Market,  so called
and they had them,  so was delighted
to be ble to use them as well.







They are such pretty berries......
My son and agricultural specialist say
they are from the Black Cohosh family.






























Well, there you have it folks.....

Glad you dropped by......

Gotta get busy again.....

but keep your

 light shining brightly.
g





Love and Hugs
and last day of November
Blessings,
