For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise;
Post Christmas Greetings Sweet Friends,
Hope this finds you rested up after all the Joy and Fun of Christmas.
I am feeling better than on Monday, but guess I have caught a cold,
so not feeling super peppy yet and it's Thursday already. Would like
to have some one over for New Years but not sure that is gonna happen
unless I feel a whole lot better soon, but that's okay, cause we aren't
exactly what you would call party animals. lol
Pictures today are more of our Christmas Decorations for 2022.
These are from our Foyer and Living room area.
Now on with my Thankfuls..............
Thankful that our sweet neighbor came over to offer my husband
wood logs, for our fireplace just as he was going out to chop wood.
What a blessing it was for him not to have to chop it, and safer
too, plus saved him time as well. So we all got to enjoy being
warm and cozy by the fire numerous times. We were all so
delighted that we had a cold Christmas, as it has been years
since it was cold all day. Usually we start out with long
sleeves and by 11:00 we are dying and have to put on
something else. FYI - we live in Central Florida.
Thankful our kids from S Carolina got here on Friday afternoon,
and we all went out to dinner together as a family to celebrate
our Son-in-loves birthday (which isn't until early Jan.) but wanted
to be able to surprise him and celebrate with him for a change.
Thankful lil darling got to sleep over and hang out for
awhile on Sat. so she could spend time with her Aunt
Dina and Uncle Jerry. She adores them, and they
Thankful that on Christmas eve, we got to visit for awhile
and then Dee and I did most of the cooking for Christmas
Brunch and Dinner, which is fun for us, as we enjoy cooking
together..... but have to say we were a lil more tired than
usual, so maybe not as fun as usual. lol The Beef Stew was
already done for our traditional Christmas Eve dinner,
Thankful that we had an awesome Christmas day with the
whole family being able to be together this year.
Thankful for a yummy Brunch and Dinner that was easy
yet delicious. We liked to do a lot of make ahead dishes
we can just pop in the oven.
Thankful for all the lovely cards, baked goods and thoughtful
gifts we received as well.
Thankful that Dee and Jerry made pretty good time
driving back to SC. It only took them 7 hrs. rather
than the 9, it took after Thanksgiving. Typicallly,
the drive is 5 1/2 to 6 hours. Sad they had to leave
the next day, but grateful they got to come.
Thankful to have a few do nothing days after Christmas,
as we were beyond tired, even tho it was a very good tired.
Only did what we had to do! Doing a lil more today,
but plan not to overdue it for sure. lol
Thankful for all the leftover food we have just been
able to heat up. One of the perks of hosting I must say!
Thankful for another Andrea Bocelli Christmas Special
we got to see the night after Christmas on TBN.
I think you might still be able to see it. They had
2 different ones, this one was called a "Bocelli
Family Christmas", I think! It was beautiful and
Magical...........So if you get a chance think you will
Thankful for this weeks "Take Away" show on TBN.
They interviewed Ann VosCamp and Sissie Graham
Lynch. Excellent interviews from somd really wise
ladies. Gave me a whole new appreciation for Ann
VosCamp as she shared some of her testimony. She
has really been through some really tough things
in her life. Think you could check this show out
too on TBN. We get it through Roku.
The Blessed sign was a Christmas gift from a friend.
Well, that's it for us... here at Cozy Place.
This is our Christmas Edition!!
Praying for a Good New Year in 2023
for each of you and your families.
Only 3 days away! Can hardly believe it!
Love, Hugs, and Happy New Year
