I'm pretty sure Santa is not going to stop at our house this year. Mrs. Ushka-Claus is not in the Christmas HO-HO-HO spirit. Of course, she gets this way around the holidays. Elves, toys, gifts, money, decisions, decorations, lights, cooking...okay, NO cooking, but so much pressure from the world's demands!
She WILL hang the three lighted ornaments from the tree outside to honor her faith in the Trinity; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. That is what this time of year is about...thankfulness for the Gift of salvation.
A PRAYER OF THANKS
Heavenly Father, thank you for sending your Son to earth as a baby so many years ago. Thank you that He paid the punishment for my sins by dying on the cross. And thank you that He rose again to prove that death was truly defeated. I place my trust in You to be my Savior. Guide me through the dark times of my life and give me courage to live for You. Amen
Mrs. Ushka-Claus is keeping it simple to keep her sanity...just sayin'!!!
Came across this sweet picture of Adam, my brother's grandson, and Nanny being Christmas Bingo leaders, from 2008. Such a sweet little Santa helper!
Fresh Find: This sewing machine has a vintage look. Pretty cool!
