CELEBRATE WITH JOY! because God sent His Son, Jesus, to be born for us...to die for us...and to rise for us! The greatest gift of all...sent to love us...and, because of this, we should love one another...and show it in our lives. This will be the last year we give physical gifts to each other...from now on we will help a needy family, give to the food bank, give to a charity, not only at Christmas, but all year, showing our love for the One who saves us.
Our youngest daughter did make it home from CO...a day late due to bad roads and ugly weather, but is here until next week. Toured her 'old' middle school which has been remodeled and is now 'top of the line'...she's jealous because she wants the science equipment in HER school.
We had a little excitement last night due to an arrest two houses down from us...in a deputy sheriff's folk's yard...with that deputy sheriff 'putting the guy down himself'. First heard about it a couple hours before the arrest, that they were looking for an armed guy...so, of course, the men in the different houses had their rifles/shotguns loaded and handy. Good thing the various dogs didn't cold nose them in their nearly nonexsistant attire!
Snowing softly here with the chickadees eating from their feeder...a nice comfy winter scene...
