Church this morning was all about the NEW for 2013. New Joy, new Life new You. . . I loved the lessons that I learned in 2012. . I wouldn't change a thing, hard lessons, but lessons I needed to learn. Everything about 2012 is done and completely over. I am glad of that. The New Me (once the clearing out and cleaning of my house) is about to emerge, Free as a Butterfly.
The dance of 2013 was performed by Aminta this morning. God is good and His Blessing rains down upon us. She is in perpetual movement, some of the pictures may be a bit blurry.
I was a Blessed Christmas Day. The food was good, the company was terrific, and the day turned out excellent.
God be with you and yours. I am so thankful for the family I have. Christopher is stationed in New Mexico and couldn't be with us this Christmas. He used up his time when his father passed last September. Mom (Debra) needed him then.
I am dressed with the Red sweater. Yep, had to go out and find something red for all the Christmas parties. I am clearing out most of my house and I had given away most of my clothes. I hate shopping, but fortunately one of the grocery places (Target) had them on sale. My beautiful daughter is standing beside me, long blonde hair and dressed in black (with lacy socks and bows). Becky has the green sweater with Christmas Tree on the front. She is so Special, she has become part of our family. Sometimes you can pick your family. I am so Blessed with all my friends that have become family over the years now that most of my family has passed on.
