Blog Your Blessings Sunday


If you care to join us acknowledging our blessings go here: Blue Panther

I made this bulletin board for our church hallway because I felt it appropriate for this season. CLICK on to enlarge and read the words. . .

Sunday is the first day of Advent, a time of preparation for Jesus' birthday that we celebrate on Christmas. By reading and studying my Bible, I am enlightened more daily. Jesus is known as the LIGHT of the world. We are indeed blessed to know of the love of Jesus for us. Thus, as Advent begins, I celebrate the blessing of Jesus' birth that we are preparing our hearts for during this coming month. Happy birthday, Jesus. Just as Jesus gave us the gift (Life in eternity) I try to reach out to someone that is more needy than myself. This year, I chose two children's name from our Giving Tree. I got a big sack full of arts and crafts for the 7 year old and had so much fun deciding which items would bring a little joy to her life. I am still hunting for the perfect baby doll for the 4 year old. Maybe my next shopping trip will be the one where I find it.

What a lovely post. I can imagine the child who receives the art supplies will be delighted. Perfect baby dolls can be hard to find, though. Sweet and innocent is rare these days. (Have you tried Amazon? It has everything, just about!)

I too took a name of a child in need. Felt good shopping for this baby. My first Christmas purchase of the year, in fact.

Your bulletin board is gorgeous.

Lemme take this opportunity to tell you that you have created an awesome Bulletin Board.

This is the biggest wisdom when you realize life as a gift and opportunity.

In past weeks I disappointed you a lot by not posting BYBS. This time I am the first one to do it.

A lovely post... and a lovely bulletin board (and yes, very appropriate!)... and best of luck with the doll... AND sorry for my tardiness... it's be a killer/crazy time for us... and probably will be so until after the holidays!

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
