Christmas Time Anniversary


Can you imagine anyone getting married
this close to Christmas. I'm sure lots have and
we did. Yes, today December 20, 1963.
That's 54 years ago today!

This photo was taken a few months after we married.
With 6 children, my parents couldn't
afford to give us a wedding, so there were no
photo's. This was probably taken with one of
those throw away cameras. 


Isn't my hubby cute, my have we both changed.


This is us in 2009





I believe this was in 2012




This was taken a few weeks ago.



There's been lots of good times and some
not so good, but by the grace of God we'll
keep counting the years!
Today we will spend most of the day at his
doctors appointment an hours drive away.
We'll have a nice lunch in one of our favorite places to eat,
then drive the hour back home.

Since our Anniversary comes during the week,
I had a little get together with family, although some couldn't come,
because they work on the
weekend also.
I made, or bought :

Red Velvet Cake

Mini cupcakes




I made Piggy in the Blankets

I got the recipe from
Diana at

to make.











Have a Blessed Day
and
Merry Christmas!

HUMILITY





He humbled himself and left his home in Heaven.
He came to earth as a baby, yet still holy.
He so loved us that He was willing to die for us,
so we could have life ever lasting.

Oh how great a Love!

The highest lesson a believer has to learn is humility.
I am learning this myself. This December 20th my hubby and I will be married 54 years. We were  young when we married, I had just turned 18 and he 20.
We have been through many highs and lows in our marriage. Like life, marriage is a journey with each other, holding each other up and encouraging one another in sickness and health.  I am having to do this with my hubby more so now, he has COPD and has had it for years. It is hard, but by
the grace of God we will get through this one day at a time.
I said that so you may understand that even if I don't post often, and I know you understand that it takes time to blog, you are all in my thoughts and I miss you. He needs my Time and attention and I want to do all I can for this man that I Love.


" Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted."
Matthew 23:12 ESV



In trials and weakness and trouble, our Lord seeks to bring us low, so we may learn that His grace is enough, and His strength is made perfect in our weakness.

"Humble yourselves therefore, under the mighty hand of God, so that at the proper time he may exalt you."
1 Peter 5:6


I will post a couple of photo's of my Christmas decorations.

My guest room




This is before I put the tree skirt on.










My table setting.
We had fun with this on
facebook . I took Diana's idea from NanaDianatakesabreak  and ask what plate would they like for theirs, at my Christmas Tea Party. Everyone wanted the Cardinal and the stocking.  







Table centerpiece







"Believe" garland on mantle in guestroom.



There's more but I haven't had time to put them
on my computer. I will try to do so and post them soon.

Have a Blessed Day!

Sunday Morning Inspiration









"He will cover you with His feathers & His
faithfulness will be your shield".
Psalm 91:4

Hope everyone is enjoying getting ready for
Christmas. I am having some health problems
but  getting better, still have to keep going, not
enough to keep me from doing what I have to 
do though.



Have a Blessed Sunday!
