A very Merry and Blessed Christmas to each of you.
It is my hopes and prayers that 2011 treats all of you with good health and many joyous days.
You've noticed, I'm sure, that this blog has quieted down. It is my fault as both my time and interests have been pulled in other directions. I hope you understand.
I'll be taking a hiatus from this blog for a while posting only when I find something pressing or worth your time to read.
This blog will remain open and I do read each and every comment. You can always e-mail me anytime.
Like I said, I'll post from time to time so I hope you do pop in once in a while to see what is going on and to say hello.
Thank you for all the wonderful e-mails you have sent me and for those of you who have sent pictures of your baskets, thank you as I have loved seeing your work. You can e-mail me a picture any time and know that I'm cheering you on.
My life at this time is full, blessed and busy. It is good. I'm keeping the household running as smoothly as possible. Please continue to keep our sweet Emily in your prayers. If your church has a prayer chain, I would truly appreciate it if you would add her name to your list. She is a good kiddo and manages to babysit, work a few hours a week at a concession stand and attend school with good grades. She does this all in pain and it is very discouraging for her at times as she doesn't see an end in site. We're pursuing with treatment through a pediatric infectious disease specialist but it is soooooo sloooowwww. They question is it really Lyme's disease. It puts us back at square one for a while as they do more testing, but God is great and I know he has big plans for that little girl. I often wake up in the middle of the night and pray for hours for her and all who are suffering. Even so, life is good and precious. God bless you for remembering her. Our other children are fine and busy with activities. Mike has a good job so we have much to be thankful for.
Be sure to take some time with your family and remember the real reason for the season that Jesus our Savior came to earth to wash away our sins so that we may have life everlasting in His holy presence.
With love and blessings to each of you,
