Save us, LORD our God, and gather us
from the nations, that we may give thanks
to your holy name and glory in your praise.
Psalm 106:47 NIV
Greetings Sweet Friends,
Hope this finds you well and happy!
Just a week left until Christmas.....the time is
flying it seems. Hubby and I are fighting
off colds and he has been worse than me,
has a head cold, no fevers for either of us,
but just feeling very tired....
Gonna have to start pacing ourselves so we
work a little, and rest rest a little the next
2 days. Lord willing, Our Daughter and
Son-in-Love will be in on Sunday night
late. So we are definitely looking forward
Pictures today are of my kitchen shelves.
I saw that Ann of "On Sutton Place"
did her shelves in a Christmas tree pattern,
and loved it......and before that I had
seen another blogger that was unfamiliar
to me, that did her bookshelves in a
rainbow color, each shelf in a different
color.....Here is a link to her blog
So these ladies
inspired my kitchen ladder shelves......
So on with my thankfuls.....
Thankful for being able to attend lil darlings Christmas
program, it was really great and really added so much
Christmas cheer, along with the real reason for celebrating
Christmas, and it was great to get to see a number
of folks that we know or have known over the years.
Thankful that the lady who directed the program
and who is so gifted and talented musically but
also in working with kids, did a fantastic job
as always. We have been friends for years as she
attended our church for years and led my children
too, in Christmas pageants as well. She's still
does an amazing job, and she looks fantastic.
Thankful for a fun time afterward, taking
lil darling out to dinner at one of her fav
restaurants, Texas Road House, and
then she got to see all our Christmas
decorations afterwards when they brought
us home.Just a lovely evening.
Thankful for some new pictures that
her Mommy had taken of her by a
photographer, that came out so beautifully.
Thankful for a totally unexpected Christmas
card from some friends that we knew before we
were married 50+ years ago. Some how
we lost touch with each other, but recently
I have seen posts from her hubby and
commented, but haven't connected with her
in a long time, so what a delight to receive
her sweet card saying she thinks of us
often, but she just isn't a techy person.
Just made my day!! lol
Thankful that I was able to send
10 of my Christmas greeting cards to our
Alliance Nursing Home. I would
have sent more had I known earlier but
that was what I had on hand that I
had printed already. So that made
us happy.....to be able to do that!
Thankful I was able to complete 6
Christmas cards and a printable so far
this week to place in our shop, and have
2 more in the works that hopefully will be
completed by the end of the week maybe.
Thankful for our churches Christmas
program, which we were totally surprised
they were having... We watched it
online as hubby wasn't feeling great, but
it was mostly done remotely anyway.
It was really so creative and awe-
some what they did, and they had
a great testimony from a lady who
lost her husband to covid because he
was already very sick, great testimony
to God's goodness to her during that
terrible time when she couldn't see him.
Thankful for a fun day with lil darling. We
had her the entire day, and it's been along time
since we have been able to do that, so it was great!
We worked on a gingerbread house, and made
Christmas cards for her parents, went for wagon
rides 3 times, 1 at night so she could see all our
neighbors Christmas lights. Checked out ecards,
colored in coloring books, and she did a dance
recital for us, then she and Daddy stayed for
dinner, so it was a good day. I am tired
but it's a good tired.
She had lots of fun doing it.....
I just put icing on....Me not so good! lol
We were not going for perfection... just fun....
But thought she did a great job!!
Thankful to know God is in control of
who our President will be......as I am
extremely dismayed, disappointed and
shocked at our Supreme court... to
say the least!!
Thankful for something that had the
potential to be very awkward turned
out not to be awkward at all, PTL
Thankful for Trinity Broadcasting
Network, they have quite a few
Chrstimas programs, and the ones
we have watched have been very
good and very uplifting.
Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week.
Thanks for coming by....
Have a Fun Friday and a
Love, Hugs and
Merry Christmas Blessings,
