It has been a very busy week around here. We threw my Mother in Law a 90th Birthday party last Saturday. My step daughter was in charge of getting it put together but come to find out a week before the party she hadn’t got anything done so I spent all week working on decorations, centerpieces, and I made and decorated a whole sheet cake in addition to some of the food I had to cook. So needless to say it has been a very busy week. The party turned out great though. A lot of people brought their instruments and so they had a pretty good jam.
So now I am hoping to get my house ready for Christmas and start on stuff for Christmas.

My Favorite Post of the Week
This post simply touched me to the core. My favorite paragraphs:
“We don’t need to shout out Jesus loves you from a megaphone, in order to shine the light of Christ into the lives of others.
In fact, please DON’T do that!
Sometimes- MOST TIMES- all it takes is a kind word, a thoughtful act, or a simple smile, to make someone’s day.”
Rachel shares a poignant example of how to be the light to others that will melt your heart.
As we move through the Holiday season, I am so inspired now to a light to others. Will you join me? Please read this article.
