What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Thanks for the Little Things, that are now lacking.

The Last of the Flowers...for a whole season.

How will I ever SURVIVE?!?!

Makes me all the more thankful for them, once I am missing them.

And thankful that I have my camera, to remember them by.

Sorry I didn't comment about your ordeal last week. I was extremely busy planning and implementing a wedding reception for 200. We even made all the food. We had a blast though. Anyway, I am so thankful that the Lord kept you safe. And I am glad you went back to the place. It will help get over the scare. We can't be careful enough with our little ones. Keep watching.

I'll miss the flowers, too. But, even though winter is my least favorite holiday, there's little in the world more beautiful than looking out on a backyard covered in snow, where ice has wrapped up all the branches and the sun is making little sparklies everywhere.
Winter is okay, I guess, so long as I don't have to drive in it.
And then, there's Christmas...

Mrs. B~ WOW. I would have LOVED to see that! OR BEEN there! See-I TOLD you that you need a blog! :-) You made all the FOOD too? I can only imagine...wow.

You'll have to survive, by taking out your photos and looking at them. :-)

Maybe making lots of prints of them, and hanging them all around the walls of your house...?

Lest you think I am too amazing, I had lots of help with the making of the food. It was a lot of work, but the fellowship was great while doing it. Thanks for being impressed. Christy Long (now Nelson) took the pictures. Maybe there will be one to send you. And I am seriously thinking of having Joe help me begin a blog at Christmas time, so keep watching. I will let you know.

Oh PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE! That would be WONDERFUL. I would take that as a Christmas gift from you to ME! (Knowing full well it isn't, but I would enjoy it just as MUCH as a present!)

And about the food. Regardless of you having help, it is STILL impressive. ESPECIALLY the fact that you have mentioned you had a good time fellowshipping during that time. Now THAT is incredible. As many parties as I have put on (the small ones mind you) I still have trouble finding the balance between Mary and Martha and those times are often tainted with a few frazzles. :-)
