Merry Christmas!


I can't believe the year is almost over
The tree is up, stockings are hung and the family is home,  
Presents are wrapped, cookies are baked, 
and people are filed with charity and joy

The following message is from blogger and plane crash survivor  Stephanie Nielson really touched me, so I want to share it with all of you


A note to those of you who hurt- Hold on.

To those of you who are hurting or
disappointed this time of year.


Just hold on.
Everything will be OK.
Although in our journey here in mortal life, will encounter forks and turnings in the road from time to time- some more serious and painful than others, but we all have trials that will come.
My heart is so heavy right now, I feel such a sorrow in my heart.
I just feel for those that hurt at such a hopeful time. Hang on.
This time of year you should feel ever grater love from our Savior
and you should feel the peace that comes when we place everything into his hands.
Hold on. 
I know in your heart you will have the peace and determination to do this.
I have felt that all is lost, that my life is useless and that I am good for nothing. I have learned as I have healed body and mind that, it is simply not true- and so with you.
I am all for feeling sorrow and loss, but only for a while, soon it will eat away at your soul and hurt relationships.
Carry on- move forward, hold your head high.
This too shall pass. And it does. And sometimes we will carry scars on the outside, some of us on the inside, and some both, but you are never alone.
Never.
Merry Christmas to you, and to your loved ones.

Old fashioned Christmas



Simple, classic, beautiful 


Forget the fancy decorations and  pricy gifts 
Christmas (and life) is truly what you make it
