-t- is for thankful

forever grateful, forever counting His gifts (from my 1400's)

the flipping of pages as boy love & girl love consult one another,
"did you choose a rabbit?"
"what about chickens or orphan care at Maria's?"
 - gifts to Him -
 ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’    Matthew 25

children singing and telling of His love
our girl love, angel #2
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

the fun in sharing time and baking with friends

the fun old wives' tale that if your necklace clasp is in the front, it means someone is thinking of you; finding mine in front i smile, think of someone maybe thinking of me, and whisper a prayer for them

Advent trees, candles, wreaths, devotionals, conversations, sharing, togetherness

that Isaac said he'd heard it said, there are only two types of people
the one's who walk into a room and say, 'here i am'
and the one's who walk into a room and say, 'there you are'

hot cocoa with whipped cream

my I do, boy love, girl love, and r2-d2 playing trouble

red grapefruit fresh from the florida tree

prayers whispered for safe travels, for each one on their way to Hialeah, Oregon, Alabama, Tennessee
the hopes and excitement for time shared
peace. like a river ((because as I've read at Ann's: Peace is a person))

the joy in His coming
(thank you, Jesus.
 happy birthday)

wishing you & yours a Merry Christmas and
joining Ann and the community of thankful counters
