Happy New Years!

Happy New Years everyone.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Thank you to those who left comments on my last post. I have been blessed to have so many people who care about me and feel blessed to have so many wonderful blogging friends!

My Christmas was wonderful, I am still recovering from all the work, and energy I put into this years celebration.

Every Year I change up my blog some. I like a new start to the new year.

I am still working on my new blog layout so please be patient while i spend time figuring out how I want my new blog page to look. I have already changed the main picture to one my husband took from our bedroom balcony one morning. I also changed my profile info, and added my real life picture that I took a few weeks ago. Now everyone can see who is behind the written posts! Please feel free to comment on my new changes. I am still not sure if the top picture of the sunrise is the right picture for my blog. In a way it is, because a sunrise represents a new day. :)

I am hoping 2009 will be filled with many blessings, and joys for everyone.

I will be posting more soon, and visiting everyone's page soon. :)

Hugs and blessings sent your way!

Again Happy New years!

Christmas memories

This time of year always makes me think of my mother. She loved Christmas, and that love has brushed off on me. :) One of my fondest memories is of Christmas eve. My twin and i would be so excited knowing that Santa would be coming that night. My mother would sing to us while she tucked us into bed. One of the songs she sang to us was Santa clause is coming to town. My mother had a beautiful voice, and very often my twin and i would be in awe while listening to her. We loved hearing her sing.

I thought i would post the song in memory of my mother. I miss her so very much, but I always feel so close to her at Christmas.

After singing to us, my twin and i would pretend to go to sleep. (Laughing, our mother was fully aware we were pretending.) We then would wait for everyone else to go to sleep and in the middle of the night, we would tip toe down the hallway, giggling and whispering to each other very excited about seeing what Santa brought us. My mother later told me that she always heard us and always knew we wouldn't be able to sleep until we had an idea of what we were getting. She always left the tree lights on so we could see...... Grinning wide. We then would tip toe back to our beds, whispering, and giggling again where we then would fall asleep with visions of Christmas morning to enter our dreams.

My King - SM Lockridge

If you have never heard or seen this, I recommend taking the time to watch this message by a very powerful speaker. This video was shown at Cleansing streams, and it is so worth watching and hearing!

That's my King, do you know him?

I hope you enjoy!

I know I haven't been around much lately. Between my fathers visit, and getting ready for more company at Christmas I have my hands full. I decorate a lot as well as bake, and take on all kinds of projects during this time of year. I am a huge Christmas fan. :) My mother also loved Christmas. It is probably where i got my love for this time of year from. I know my twin sister does also.

This video is sad, but it says so much. My twin and i talked about this last year i think, and we found out we both loved the movie that was made because of this song. We sat crying our eyes out, while watching it. Of course since we both live so far away we watched it separately. Funny though how very similar my twin and I are even though we are so different!

My Thanksgiving was a good one. I enjoyed my fathers visit, and am really missing him already.

I hope you all are doing well. I will be around to visit all your blogs soon!

Hugs and blessings sent to you all.
