Have a Holy Contemplative Sunday


*
Good Sunday Morning Sweet Friends,
*
Hope this finds you well rested and unstressed.
I know you are thinking...........she is joking, right??
*
Actually, I am sort of.........but I really am hoping
you are able to enjoy this wonderful season of
the year and get done what you have to with
joy and peace in your heart.
*
We have been wrapping gifts last night and
 tonight and watching movies as we did,
so that made it fun!
*
We are finished (Yea) and have it under the tree
and got the stuff put away and the dining room table back
 to normal!  We did some smokin' work on that,  but we
are happy to be done,  but yet we did enjoy it too!
I thank the Lord for my husband and all his help,
 he is such a blessing. Like the ole saying goes,
Many hands make the work light.
*
Now I can start turning my attention to food and tableware.
  I already know what I am making.  I have 3 meals to
prepare for,  Christmas Eve will be our traditional Christmas
 dinner cause my daughter has to work Christmas Day
from 3-11p.m,  so we are having her favorite dinner then,
 and Christmas morning we always have a brunch and
then Christmas dinner in the evening.
*
I made Lasagna and some Banana macadamia bread
to freeze for christmas dinner and brunch.  I have
never made that Banana macadamia bread before,
 it sure looked and smells good,  so hope it taste as good
as it looked! Saw the recipe in Family cirlce I think it was.
*
My header pic is taken from a sofa pillow that I got
 some years back..... it  just looks like just a snowman scene
but  if you look closely,  it is a manger scene .......... don't you
just love it,  I think it is so precious!
Makes me smile anyway!
*
I will leave you now with some verses
from Luke 2: 6&7
*
While they were there (In Bethlehem), the time came
 for the baby to be born,
*
 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son.  She wrapped
 him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there
was no room for them in the inn.
*
This Holy event...........how amazing it was that God
stepped out of heaven to come here to this earth
for our sakes!
*
Oh, How He loves You and Me!
*
Contemplate that for awhile as you are
wrapping or cooking or whatever you
have left to do!
*
Merry Christmas!
*
Love, Peace and Joy to you, My Friends,
Nellie

So sweet that Hubbie helps with the wrapping...definitely not a favorite chore for either one of us!! But I love it when it is all tucked under the tree:)
