Cheap Christmas Gifts

Last year I made a list of some cheap ideas for Christmas gifts. Rather than get out on Black Friday and spend too much money in all that crowd...try making some gifts.

Worthy Is The Lamb by Hillsong

I Thank God For...

Having the energy to get my Thanksgiving cooking done. I started about lunch time and worked on it for about 4 hours. I had to make Broccoli Salad, my Tangy Cheeseballs, a tossed salad, and got the mis en place ready for my Turkey Frame Soup. It doesn't sound like much but it did take me all that time to cut everything up and then get it all cleaned back up. I got it done! And I'm so tired but it's done! I'm just so thankful that I didn't have one of my bad days today.

That our garage project is moving right along. We haven't given up on it.

The Bible. I may have thanked God for this earlier, I can't remember. But God was so good to make sure that we had His Word to read so we can get to know Him better. He worked through thousands of years and lots of history and through many men to get His Word to what we have now. Every word is God breathed and faithful and true. And, in our time and in America, we have many translations to choose from so that we can understand. It's not in olde English any more. And then there are the Study Bibles and/or Study Helps like Bible dictionaries, encyclopedias, maps, commentaries, etc. On top of all that, as a Christian I have the Holy Spirit instilled in me to help me to understand and learn and remember the Word. And the Holy Spirit makes the Word personal to us and our situations. So we have no excuse for not reading the greatest book in the world.

The new addition to our family that is due in January. My niece, Jenny, and her husband, Kyle, are expecting a little boy in January. So far, everything is looking good and we thank God for a healthy baby and a healthy mother.

Being able to get together with both our families for Thanksgiving tomorrow. We will meet with the Harris' and their big turkey dinner tomorrow and then my family for Turkey Frame soup on Friday. Then there will be all those leftovers. Believe me, our families cook so much that the tables groan with the weight. We are so blessed. So many won't have family together, or won't want their family together. So many won't have that much food, some may even be starving. Some may not have large homes and warmth and comfortable furniture in order to entertain. We are blessed beyond the best!

Today I'm Thankful For...

The delicious tuna casserole I made for lunch. Dad, Ronnie, Elaine and I ate lunch together and I threw together a tuna casserole that was wonderful! I'm also thankful for the supper my Mother is in my kitchen cooking right now. She brought a whole chicken, fresh collard greens from their garden, bread, cake, tomatoes and some beans. None of it cost a cent! It was given to her and it will be enough for Mom, Dad, Stan, Elaine, Ronnie and I for supper. God is good!

The pretty weather we had today. Yesterday it was gray, cold, windy and spitting rain. But today it was sunny, cold but not too cold.

For my study. I found a wonderful old walnut (real wood) desk that is the perfect size. I'm sitting in a comfortable office chair. I have everything I need at my fingertips and lots of filing cabinet space. I have shelves for my scrapbooking stuff. I'm blessed to have this whole room for my hobbies when so many people are trying to use a laptop on their knees or a closet or a corner in the basement, etc. It's a great blessing.

A couple of years ago I had a fasting sugar test and my sugar dropped too fast and too low and I passed out and went into some type of seizure and they had to take me by ambulance to the hospital. I got alright again as soon as they fed me. But while I was having that whatever it was...I knew I was dying and was going to be with Jesus. I had the best sense of peace and calm and happiness come over me. My Mom had a spell like that too and she said the same thing. What a blessing it is to know that you know that you are going to be with Jesus in Heaven for eternity.

The software that I use to edit photographs and build digital scrapbooking pages. I've found I really love doing it!

A Very Simple Way To Roast Turkey

How to simply roast a turkey and make pan dripping gravy. Very simple and easy.

Come, Now Is The Time To Worship

I Thank God For...

Our trip to Myrtle Beach, SC this weekend. We had to winterize our camper and we had a nice weekend. It was very cold and windy on Friday and Saturday but our camper was nicely heated and we had our warm little nest. I did a little bit of shopping at the Tanger Outlet Mall on Hwy 501 and bought some Revereware and Pyrex mixing bowls with lids. My melamine mixing bowls are starting to crack so I've been looking for good stainless steel bowls but with plastic lids. I found 3 small ones and then I just bought a 4 qt Pyrex bowl with lid. At least it's lighter and tougher glass but weight is a real consideration for me. I wish I could have found good quality larger stainless steel bowls with lids since they are lightweight and tough. The rest of the time I read and I finished 3 books over the weekend.

Our safety going and coming on this trip. God took care of us and we didn't have any accidents or car trouble.

An adorable little boy we saw at the beach. He was probably 5-7 yrs old and bouncing around with a cardboard box on his back. He came over to talk to me (he saw Persephone and wanted to see her) and we got to ask what his box was all about. It seems his father had used cardboard boxes to make him a "Transformer" outfit and the little boy painted it. He plopped down and the box fell over his little body and he was "transformed" into an army tank. He was so cute and his idea was so cute. We got such a kick out of it. And he was on his was to the indoor pool so he could show other people how he could "transform". God bless that little cutie pie!

Persephone. She went with us on our trip and she is no trouble at all. She travels so well. The boys would travel well too but not little Miss MoneyPenny who is too curious and hyper to take any where. But Sephy went shopping with me and rode in the car and stayed in the camper very well. She did get sick and threw up but it was no problem. She's so little that it's easy to clean up. I gave her some Kaopectate and she was fine. She just cannot eat anything other than her normal dog food and home water. Anything the least bit new and it upsets her system.

Seafood. We ate at Lee's Inlet Kitchen in Murrell's Inlet, SC. We have gone to this restaurant over many years and it was good as usual. Despite the season being over, I was surprised what was still open and what was closed. For instance, the camper's grocery store and coffee shop were closed although the campground was opened and there were plenty of people there. Restaurants were open but souvenir shops were closed, etc. But we ate well and I love good seafood. We also had a great breakfast at the Woodhaven (another goldie oldie for breakfasts) and the IHOP.
