JUST CHILLIN' PAPER AND ICICLES SET


Mr Miles and I hope you enjoy this small set. We collaborated on this 'un... and there are two sets of icicles waiting to be hung on your own layouts. You may notice that I put a new little page in with your kit. I would like to think that our kits don't get abused but I also know we live in a broken world. Stealing free stuff, doesn't it make you giggle, really? I always pray the Lord uses it for good. My little sheet is simply to ask folks to send people to our blog to download, not just pass the files between yourselves. A reasonable request, I should think? The photo is my sweet HANDSOME Miles a few years ago. Honest, he is a drop dead handsome boy!


LUKE 18:20

You know the commandments:
'Do not commit adultery,
do not murder,
do not steal,
do not give false testimony,
honor your father and mother.




There's nothing like some good Christmas music to get me happily bloggin along in the morning... and if it has a good spiritual message as well, its x2 better. In this mean 'ol world I find myself clinging to the 'good things' in life. Oh, I don't do the ostrich - I just choose to think on what I can do to make it a better place. I can't control life, but I can little changes, I can start something better and I can make my place a little sweeter. I heard some powerful lyrics just the other day which reminded me of how I hope this Christmas is for me and my family. These are a few verses from the song "I Won't Forget Christmas" by Plus One:


What if there was no manger.
No wise men.No Savior.
Just another day in December.
I’d be hopeless.Oh, so hopeless.
But on that day with the angels watching, creation waiting,came as a baby.
Like an echo across the world, a cry was heard,and changed everything.
So I won't forget this Christmas, that I am nothing without You.


oh, You are the star that guides my heart.
I won’t forget (I won't forget) this Christmas.
Should I get distracted, bring me back to what matters.
All the presents they, they will fade away.
You are forever.Oh, You’re forever.
Nothing compares to the gift You gave,my life You saved.
And so, I promise You.

I won't forget this Christmas, ( this Christmas)
that I am nothing without You.
oh, You are the star that guides my heart.
I won’t forget (I won't forget) this Christmas.


MY 'THRIFTY' DECORATING...


Miles and I hibernated yesterday - he clearing up a backlog of web related 'stuff' and I designed our Christmas Card... not sure if I should show em here or wait till after I have posted off to our friends and rellies... well if you all beg me I could be pushed over, I am sure - after all this is YOUR blog too. (please keep sending me your layouts that you use our stuff in to publish here!) I will tell you that I used our "Get My Drift?" kit to design them. Ohhhhh... Miles liked that one so much he used it to make the backdrop for our worship powerpoint presentation at Church this morning. Yes, I love to worship our Lord, in music but "I wish" I could enjoy singing in front of the congregation... my stomach just ties up in knots. And saying this, I better scoot and help Miles get everything together. You have a blessed day. I will post more oxymorons tomorrow.

My sister in law Judy has been experiencing many problems with her blog... and is very frustrated with it all - but we hope to get it straightened out between us over the next few days. I've updated her link in my list of links to the left of my blog. Thanks for your lovely layout Jud. *hugs*
