My two absent men. Grabbed this shot over Thanksgiving break. Even got my usually solemn-faced Marine (in front of a camera) to smile with a "PLEAAAASE".
Missing these two. This shall be my compy background for a little while. Love the GRINS given to me.
I have not stepped one foot in the attic or my walk-in to get any Christmas decor out...yet. Waiting for the moment to come when I am ready. Mama would want me to very very much. I know it would make her sad if she knew I wasn't. She loved to decorate for Christmas...every room in her house. When I went over to my Daddy's yesterday, he had gotten their beautiful tree down and was fiddling with the little electric twirlers on it that make certain ornaments (the angels) spin around. I almost lost it. I told him I was proud of him. I knew mama would be so happy he was doing it. He is doing well, and I thank my bloggy sisters for your prayers. You are all special.
I do have one new item sitting out, simply because I just got it at my favorite little Thrift Store. A lovely Saint Nick. Loved his face, and the white and gold.
So for now,...here is one Christmas pretty embellishing the Living Room. Saint Nicholas is NOT a myth. He was a real person, and lived to help the poor and needy.
He does not fit the image of our Santa Claus today.... he truly was a saint of a man, adored by the ones who benefited from his charity and loving, giving nature.
Thank you, all who visit, and I hope you feel the true joy and comfort of Christmas and all that it means for us, knowing the truth that our Savior has come. The prophecy has been fulfilled, and we have eternal life because of the Precious One of Heaven who was born here on earth with one purpose. To die and take the punishment for us, that we deserve, that we would be able to have eternity with Him. The best and truest sacrifical Gift ever presented in this world. Thankful today for it.
Hugs and Christmas Blessings to all. May you have much happiness and memories that are treasures this December month.
