Christmas Break

‘Tis The Season for rejoicing! We have a Saviour who loves us! ❀ He was born, lived and sacrificed His life for ours that we may all have eternal life with Him. Amen!? πŸ™‚

Unless something catastrophic in my life happens I have decided to set the cruise control and take a short Blog Break through the Christmas Holidays. Things are piling up that must be addressed. I will leave the comments open but will probably refrain from any responses. I think it would be prudent for me to reflect more on why we celebrate this joyous Season. I have so much to be grateful for. And as Christians, we have even more to look forward to. One day soon we will be rejoicing at the feet of Jesus our Lord, hugging our loved ones, singing beautiful songs and be in the presence of True Love for all eternity.

So, here’s praying that “And theΒ peaceΒ ofΒ God, which surpasses allΒ understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” [Philipians 4:7 ESV] Thank you for “following” me. I love you all and do pray for all my blogging friends. May all your days be blessed with fresh tires, full gas tanks and the wind in your face. Remember to throttle back and enjoy the life God gave ya. Merry CHRISTmas. πŸŽ„

Thanksgiving, The Day After

The Far Side (click to enlarge)

Thanksgiving is blissfully behind us. It was a quiet, peaceful day in the Red Bird Acres household. We no longer have family nearby to grace our humble home in the pines. That’s OK. I’m thankful for what we have. Our meal was the perfect amount with some leftovers for today’s repast. It was scrumptious.

πŸŽ„ 🍁 On the Friday after, the Fall decorations will mingle with the Christmas ones as I slowly unpack the next season from it’s year long hiatus and pack up the Thanksgiving themes. All three Christmas trees are up. A fourth one may even make an appearance, if I feel like it and can find the room. I also decorate the dog 🐢 washing and feeding area. Hey, they want to be festive too! 😊 This morning it was dark, cloudy and rainy when we also helped for about an hour decorating our Church. Now the wind is howling, the clouds are clearing with the sun peeking tentatively through, and the air has a sharp crispness about it. There’s a cold front moving in. ❀️✨

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. πŸŽ…

If you’re on the road, praying for traveling mercies all around. I hope your day is blessed.

Happy Thanksgiving

Greetings gentle readers! I do apologize for not posting more this month. I appreciate your patience. I have no excuse except pure laziness and I needed a break. ‘Tis time to get back to sharing events, dull as it is, and getting on with life, me thinks. πŸ™‚

First, Happy Thanksgiving! The above photograph is me near Thanksgiving at the age of 6 years. Our school used to dress up for each Holiday. I’m glad my Mother had the presence of mind to photograph these events, otherwise, I would have no memory of them.

I’ll keep this brief today, as we must begin preparing the cornucopia from God’s blessing for a late repast. I pray your day is joyful, prosperous, and full of love. Let’s remember to be thankful for all God has granted us, especially our salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Ride Safe Y’all,
