Funny Story.......Don't try this at home!!

  Picture compliments of https://unsplash.com/s/photos/red-velvet-cake Happy New Years Eve  Sweet Friends, I woke up laughing this morning thinking again about a story I told my neighbor last night when we ran into them at the grocery store.  Hadn't  thought of this in years and years.  Anyway, thought it might give someone out there a  good  laugh,  so thought I would share it. When our first Christmas together rolled around we had only been married not quite 2 months, and being new to the Suzie homemaker thing, I decided to make my new hubbies favorite cake, "A Red Velvet Cake", and I found these aluminum pans that were Christmas tree  shaped,  so decided to make it "A Green  Velvet Cake",  so since Red Velvet cake uses  2 bottles of  Red food coloring, I used 2 bottles  of green  food coloring for my tree shaped  extravaganza.   I was so pleased that it turned out so well after I frosted it with cream cheese frosting  with black walnuts.  Since we were going

  "Every good gift, every perfect gift, comes from above.  These gifts come down from the Father, the creator  of the heavenly lights, in whose character there  is no change at all." — James 1:17 Greetings Sweet Friends, Hope this finds you well and happy and recuperating from all the Christmas Season Celebrations and looking forward  to  New Years!  Been a fairly quiet week here since Christmas day,  so we have just been taking it easy and enjoying our still decorated for Christmas home, we are not ones for taking our things down till after the  New  Year or after 3 Kings day (which is Jan. the 6th) or some call it Ephiphany, that is a celebration of when the wise men  went  to visit baby Jesus.  (Just in case you never hear of it..... I had never  heard of that  until I started blogging and  found that some  of our  Catholic friends  celebrate that,  and I  thought that was  really neat, and then thought  maybe  that's why I never like to take my decor down early.

Thankful Thursday December 23, 2021,

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host  appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,   “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth  peace to those on whom his favor rests.”  Luke 2:13-14 NIV Christmas Greetings Sweet Friends, Well, we are just a few days away from our Favorite Celebration. Wow, December has flown by, but we are ready, all that is left to do is finish  my tablescapes and cooking, and to take cards/gifts to our neighbors.  It;s been  a pretty peaceful Christmas  season  for us, and I hope it has been  the  same for each of you, too. Pictures today are from our gussied up  for Christmas  family room 2021. Now On with my Thankfuls.................... #1 Thankful to hear about a sister-in-christ who used  to  attend our church years ago, and who's Son and  Daughter in love are one of our pastorate families now, and she  is starting to come out of a sort  of coma I guess you would say. She had a stroke and a brain bleed, and was not responding for days.

Scripture Sunday

H appy Sunday Morning Sweet Friends, Here are the verses for today!! 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 that will cause great joy for all the people.  Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.  This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths 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 heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”  Luke 2:8-14  NIV Ah, the birth of Jesus...... He is truly the Hope of the World! Now more than Ever! Hugs and Hopeful Blessings, Nellie Shairng with: Karins Kottage Grammys Grid
