DECEMBER BLISSFULL ATC ANGELS

XOXOXOXOXOXOXO...AMY...XOXOXOXOXOXOXO
MERRY CHRISTMAS IN HEAVEN BABY GIRL

SOMETIMES  IT  IS  THE  BRUISED  SPIRIT  THAT  DRAWS

US  TO  FRIENDS  THAT  WE     WILL  LOVE  AND  UNDERSTAND

FOR  A  LIFETIME.

SHELIA,  IS  ONE  OF  THOSE  FRIENDS.

SHE  SENT  ME  THE  MOST  BEAUTIFUL  POEM  IN  MEMORY  OF

ALL  CHILDREN  WHETHER  THEY  WERE  EVER  HELD,  LIVED  A

SHORT  TIME  OR  MANY  YEARS...WE  REMEMBER  THEM.

I  TRIED  TO  GET  IT  FROM  THE  E  MAIL  TO  HERE  BUT  I  COULD  NOT.

I  SAW  THIS  BEAUTIFUL  PICTURE  AND  I  THOUGHT  OF  SHELIA'S

POEM  AND  ALL  OUR  CHILDREN  WHO  ARE  FOREVER  OUR  CHILD

AND  WE  MOURN  THEM  ESPECIALLY  AT  CHRISTMAS  TIME.

THE  FOLLOWING  ARE  JUST  A  HANDFUL  OF  THESE  MOTHERS  AND

THEIR  CHILDREN:

DONNA...HER  PRECIOUS  DAUGHTER 

BECKY...HER  HANDSOME  SON

MOLLYE...HANDSOME  SON

MICHELLE...BEAUTIFUL  DAUGHTER

SHELIA...HANDSOME  SON

DINAH...BEAUTIFUL  DAUGHTER

ISABELLA...BEAUTIFUL  DAUGHTER

DEBBIE...PRECIOUS  DAUGHTER

KAREN...HANDSOME  SON

MINDY...HANDSOME  SON-ONLY  CHILD

VIVIAN...HANDSOME  SON

POLLY...HANDSOME  SON


WE  ALSO  TAKE  THE  TIME  TO  REMEMBER  THOSE  IN 

PAIN  FROM  A  MOTHER,  DADDY,  UNCLE,  AUNT, 

COUSIN,  NIECE,  NEPHEW,  BROTHER,  SISTER,

GRANDMOTHER  AND  GRANDDADDY,  AND  FRIEND

PASSING  FROM  THIS  JOURNEY  TO  THEIR  ETERNAL

JOURNEY.

WE  ALL  TAKE  A  MOMENT  TO  REMEMBER  YOUR  LOVED  ONES.

ELISABETH,  I  HOPE  YOUR  HOUSE  IS  COVERED  IN  BLUE

DRAGONFLIES.



AS  MOST  OF  YOU  KNOW  I  BELONG  TO  A  GREAT

GROUP  OF  ATC  ARTISTS.

OUR  WONDERFUL  LEADER,  HOSTESS,  AND  ALL  ROUND

WONDERFUL  GAL  IS  WENDY.

THINK  ABOUT  EXPANDING  YOUR  CREATIVITY  IN  2011  AND

JOINING  IN  THE  FUN.  EACH  MONTH  WE  HAVE  A  THEME.

DECEMBER'S  THEME  WAS  ANGELS.


MY  NEW  FRIEND  AMY 



SENT  ME  THIS  BEAUTIFUL  ANGEL.

IF  YOU  ENLARGE  IT  YOU  MIGHT  BE  ABLE  TO  SEE

THE  BEAUTIFUL  TEXTURES  OF  THIS  QUILTED  ANGEL.

HER  WINGS  SPARKLE  AND  I  LOVE  THE  PLAQUE

H...O...P...E

SHE  ADDED.

AMY  I  LOVE  HER.  IT  IS  THE  FIRST  ATC  I  RECEIVED

THAT  IS  SEWN.

PLEASE  TAKE  TIME  AND  VISIT  MY  ARTIST  FRIEND,

AMY.

THIS  BEAUTIFUL  ANGEL,  GUARDIAN  ANGEL,

WATCHING  OVER  THIS  HOME  WAS  SENT  TO  ME

BY  OUR  NEWEST  MEMBER  OF 

THE  BLISSFULL  ATC  SWAP.

HER  NAME  IS  NICOLE  AND  HER  BLOG  IS:


THANK  YOU  NICOLE  FOR  THE  PRETTY  ANGEL.

BE  SURE  AND  STOP  BY  NICOLE'S  BLOG  AND  SAY  HI.


THIS  WAS  MY  ANGEL  I  SENT  TO  AMY.  IT  HAS

VINTAGE  BUTTONS  COVERED  IN  GOLD  GLITTER.  I

LOVE  GLITTER  AND  FAIRY  DUST  AND  GERMAN  GLASS.

I  MADE  THIS  FROM  THE  FREE  CARD  GRAPHIC  THAT  I

HAD  IN  MY  LAST  POST.


THIS  IS  THE  ANGEL  I  SENT  TO  NICOLE.  I  LOVED  THIS

LITTLE  ANGEL.  I  CUT  HER  OUT  FROM  AN  OLD  CHRISTMAS

CARD  AND  ADDED  DELICATE  LACE  ALL  AROUND  THE  CARD 

AND  UP  THE  ANGEL'S  GOWN.  THEN  I  ADDED  FAIRY  DUST  DOWN

THE  MIDDLE  OF  THE  RIBBON.  THIS  ANGEL  SHINES  WITH

FAIRY  DUST.


THIS  IS  THE  ANGEL  CARD  I  SENT  TO  FRANCIE.

IT  HAS  A  BACKGROUND  OF  BEAUTIFUL  BLUE  WITH 

WHITE  RAISED  AND  FLOCKED  SNOWFLAKES.  RUBBING

THE  WHITE  IS  LIKE  FEELING  THE  FINEST  VELVET.

THE  PICTURE  IS  FROM  THE  REMINISCENCE  MAGAZINE

AND  AN  ANGEL  PLACED  BEHIND  HER  THAT  MADE

HER  LOOK  LIKE  SHE  HAS  WINGS.  I  JUST  MADE  UP

THE  SAYING.

I  DO  NOT  HAVE  FRANCIE'S  BLOG  URL  BUT  I  KNOW

SHE  IS  A  BEAUTIFUL  ARTIST.


THIS  LITTLE  CARD  I  MADE  FOR  LYNN  BECAUSE  SHE

SENT  ME  THE  ELEGANT  MARIE  ANTOINETTE  ATC.

LYNN  IS  A  BEAUTIFUL  ARTIST.



PRAYER  REQUESTS:


I  KNOW  IT  IS  CHRISTMAS  TIME  AND  A  TIME  OF

JOY  BUT  THERE  ARE  SO  VERY  MANY  PEOPLE  IN

NEED:

SANDIE:KNEE  REPLACEMENT  SURGERY  SUCCESSFUL
BUT  PRAYERS  FOR  A  SUCCESSFUL  RECOVERY.
ANGEL  DAWN:10  YEAR  OLD  ANGEL  BATTLING  CANCER
ALEX:6  YEAR  OLD  LITTLE  BOY...CANCER
JACK:9  YEAR  OLD  BOY  CANCER
LEILA:CANCER
BONNIE:CANCER
MARY:CANCER
TERRY  AND  SCOTT:CANCER
PAM:CANCER
LORETTA'S  MOTHER:MANY  HEALTH  ISSUES
ERICK
WILL
RAINA:HAVING  SURGERY  JANUARY  4,  2011
JOHN:DIALYSIS  AND  PASSING  OF  HIS  MOTHER
IRENE: (MY  MIL)...NUMEROUS  HEALTH  ISSUES
THOSE  WITH  DIABETES
HEART  DISEASE
NEEDING  A  JOB
A  HOME  TO  LIVE  IN


I  WANT  TO  TAKE  THE  TIME  TO  SHARE  AN  INCIDENT

WITH  YOU  THAT  TELLS  ME  JUST  HOW  BAD  A  SHAPE 

THE  WORLD  IS  IN.

THERE  IS  A  FREE  METHODIST  CHURCH  HERE  IN  MY

TOWN  THAT  STARTING  AT  5:00PM  THEY  WOULD  BEGIN

HANDING  OUT  250  TICKETS  FOR  A  CHRISTMAS  MEAL.

AT  3:30  PM  THE  PARKING  LOT  WAS  ALREADY  FULL  AND

THE  TRAFFIC  LINED  UP / DOWN  3  STREETS...THIS  IS  WHERE

YOU  SEE  DESPERATE  PEOPLE  BECOME  DEAMONS......A  3  CAR 

WRECK  ENSUED  AND  THEY  HAD  ONE  BIG  MESS  TRYING  TO

REROUTE  CARS  SO  THE  WRECKERS  COULD  GET  THROUGH.

OVER  750  PEOPLE  SHOWED  UP  FOR  A  CHANCE  TO  GET

A  BASKET  FOR  CHRISTMAS.  IT  WAS  LIKE  SETTING  ON  A  HILL

AND  LISTENING  TO  GOD'S  WORD  AND  WATCHING  THE  PEOPLE

WHO  WANTED  PRAYER  TAKEN  OUT  OF  THE  SCHOOLS,  AND 

"IN  GOD  WE  TRUST,"  TAKEN  OFF  OUR  MONEY  AND  REMOVE

THE  TEN  COMMANDMENTS  OFF  ALL  THE  BUILDINGS  AND

CURSING  AND  HITTING  PEOPLE  TO  GET  TO  THE  FRONT  OF

THE  LINE  TO  RECEIVE  FOOD  FROM  GOD'S  SERVANT...BUT

WANTS  NO  PART  OF  GOD.

THIS  CHRISTMAS  SEASON  I  AM  THANKFUL,  GOD  DID  NOT

EVER  GIVE  UP  ON  ME  AND  SENT  JESUS,  MY  SAVIOUR  AND

THAT  WHEN  IT  COMES  TIME  TO  GO  HOME,  MY  PLACE  IS

ETERNALLY  SECURE.   I  AM  NOT  PERFECT  AND  I  DON'T

TRY  TO  BE  BUT  JESUS  LOVES  ME.

PEOPLE  ARE  HURTING  EVERY WHERE.  REACH  OUT  AND

GIVE  SOMETHING  YOU  DON'T  REALLY  NEED  AND  THEY  WILL

REMEMBER  YOU  FOREVER...AND  THEY  WILL  FEEL  THE  HAND

OF  GOD.

 

 

AND  KEEP  YOU  SAFE  IN  HIS  ARMS  UNTIL  WE  BLOG

AGAIN.  YOU  ARE  EACH  SO  VERY  SPECIAL.

I  HAVE  SOME  MORE  POSTS  TO  COME  LATER  TODAY.

ANGEL  HUGS
