REBECCA'S LAST GIVE AWAY OF 2010

XOXOXOXOXO...AMY...XOXOXOXOXO
ALWAYS IN OUR HEART AND THOUGHTS

I  CANNOT  BELIEVE IT IS ALREADY  MID  DECEMBER.

TIME  CERTAINLY  FLIES  BY.

AS  A  CHILD,  WAITING  ON  SANTA  CLAUS,  CHRISTMAS

COULD  NOT  ARRIVE  FAST  ENOUGH.

HAVE  YOU  MAILED  OUT  YOUR  CHRISTMAS  CARDS

YET???????

MY  FIRST  CHRISTMAS  CARD  TO  ARRIVE  IS  FROM  DADDY

AND  MOTHER  EVERY  YEAR..  MY  DADDY  DOES  ALL  THE 

 SENDING  OF

THE  CHRISTMAS  CARDS.  MY  MOTHER  STILL  WORKS

FULLTIME  BOTH  AT  WORK  AND  AT  HOME.




HAVE  YOU  ATTENDED  YOUR  CHILDREN'S  CHRISTMAS

MUSICALS  BOTH  AT  SCHOOL  AND  CHURCH!!  DID  YOU

HAVE  TO  MAKE  ANY  COSTUMES?

THERE  ARE  SOOOO  MANY  THINGS  YOU  MISS  WHEN  YOU

HAVE  AN  EMPTY  NEST.


DID  YOU  BUY  A  NEW  CHRISTMAS  DRESS???  NOT  MOI...NO

PARTIES  THIS  YEAR.  I  WOULD  LOVE  A  DRESS  LIKE  THIS

FOR  ILEAN  MY  DRESS  FORM.  SHE  NEEDS  A  NEW  OUTFIT

REALLLLLY  BAD.


DID  YOU  GO  TO  THE  BEAUTY  SHOP  FOR  A  HAIR

MAKE  OVER................


DID  IT  TURN  OUT  LIKE  THIS.......LOL

HINT:  NEVER  MAKE  A  DRASTIC  HAIR  OR  MAKE-UP

CHANGE  AT  CHRISTMAS  OR  ANY  TIME  YOU  WILL  BE

AROUND  FRIENDS  AND  FAMILY  AND  WANT  TO  LOOK...OH

SO  LOVELY.


HAVE  YOU  HELPED  YOUR  ANIMALS  AND  FAMILY  OUT

OF  SOME  TIGHT  PLACES  THAT  LEFT  YOU  RUNNING  TO

THE  PLACES  YOU  NEEDED  TO  GET  TO??????????

BREATHE  IN...

BREATHE  OUT...

REPEAT


TAKE  TIME  TO  REMEMBER  JESUS,  AND  WISH

HIM,  OUR  LORD  AND  SAVIOUR,

HAPPY  BIRTHDAY!!!!!

TO  ME  AND  CHRISTIANS  AROUND  THE  WORLD,

THE  VIRGIN  BIRTH  OF  JESUS  AS  PROPHESIED,

IS  THE  REASON  FOR  CHRISTMAS.
DO  YOU  HAVE  YOUR  CHRISTMAS  TREE  UP????

I  KNOW  MOST  OF  YOU  DO.  I  HAVE  BEEN  TO  YOUR

BLOGS  AND  YOUR  HOMES  ARE  DECORATED  BEAUTIFULLY.

MOI....I    HAVE  NO  TREE  UP  BUT  I  WILL  BEFORE  THE

WEEKEND  IS  OVER...MAYBE....

DO  YOU  HAVE  YOUR  WREATHS  UP???

I  USE  TO  LOOK  FOR  A  REASON  TO  MAKE  A  WREATH.

WHEN  THE  KIDS  WERE  YOUNG  I  DECORATED  OVER

THE  TOP.  MY  SON  DOESN'T  CARE  MUCH  FOR  FROU

FROU  AND  DECORATING  AND  MY  HUSBAND  IS  THE

ONE  AND  ONLY

MR.  SCROOGE  AND  IS  PROUD  OF  IT.

MY  DAUGHTER  AND  I  WERE  THE  DECORATORS  AND  HAD

SO  MUCH  FUN  DOING  IT.


DO  YOU  FEEL  WEIGHTED  DOWN  BY  ALL  THE

HUSTLE  AND  BUSTLE  OF  THE  CHRISTMAS  TO  DO  LIST?

I  USE  TO  RARELY  EVER  WATCH  TV.   I  WAS  ALWAYS

WORKING  AND  THEN  I  CLOCKED  IN  WHEN  I  ARRIVED

HOME  FOR  MY  REAL  JOB.  MY  CHILDREN  WERE  THE  BEST

  JOB  I  EVER  HAD.

BUT  BACK  TO  THE  TV.....I  HAVE  BEEN  WATCHING  ALL

THE  CHRISTMAS  MOVIES  ON  THE  HALLMARK  CHANNEL

AND  LIFE TIME  NETWORK  (I  THINK  IT  IS  CALLED).

THE  OTHER  NIGHT  THEY  HAD  THE  FUNNIEST  MOVIE

ABOUT  THIS  WIFE, MOTHER, AND  BUSINESS  OWNER  WHO

WENT  ON  STRIKE  AT  CHRISTMAS  BECAUSE  HER  HUSBAND

AND  TWO  SONS,  WHOM  WERE  SENIORS  IN  HIGHSCHOOL

KEPT  IGNORING  HER  REQUESTS  FOR  HELP....SOON  ALMOST

EVERY  LADY  IN  TOWN  WENT  ON  STRIKE.  I  WILL  WATCH

IT  AGAIN  WHEN  THEY  RERUN  IT.



SWEET  REBECCA  AT 


IS  HAVING  HER  LAST  GIVE  AWAY  FOR  2010.

I  THINK  MOST  OF  BLOG  LAND  KNOWS  HER  FOR  THE

BEAUTIFUL  ROSES  SHE  PAINTS  AND  THE  STUNNING

DECORATIVE  PILLOWS  SHE  CREATES.

THIS  GIVE  AWAY  IS  FOR  A  CROSS  STITCHED  PILLOW

CREATED  BY  HER  HANDS.  IT  SAYS  MERRY  CHRISTMAS.

THE  GIVE  AWAY  ENDS  ON  DECEMBER  17,  2010  AT

MIDNIGHT.  IF  YOU  HAVEN'T  SIGNED  UP  STOP  BY  AND

TELL  HER  HELLO  AND  VISIT  HER  ETSY  SHOP...BE  SURE

TO  LOOK  AT  THE  NEW  POST  WHICH  IS  OF  THE  LATEST

PICTURES  OF  MISS  K.  SHE  IS  SOOOO  VERY  BEAUTIFUL.

THANK  YOU  FOR  YOUR  GIVING  HEART  REBECCA.  MISS  K

IS  JUST  LIKE  HER  GRANDMA...GORGEOUS  AND  A  BIG  HEART.

 


DURING  THIS  JOYOUS  SEASON,  PLEASE  TAKE  TIME

TO  PRAY  FOR  THOSE  WITH  A  HEAVY  HEART.

WHEN  AMY  HAD  CANCER  AS  A  LITTLE  GIRL,  I  WOULD 

STAND  AT  THE  WINDOW  OF  HER  HOSPITAL  ROOM  AND 

WATCH  THE  TRAFFIC  SPEED  BY....I  WANTED  TO  SCEAM,

"DOESN'T  ANYONE  KNOW  WHAT  IS  GOING  ON  WITH  MY

DAUGHTER?"

I  HAVE  THE  DEEPEST  COMPASSION  ESPECIALLY  FOR

PARENTS  WHO  HAVE  CHILDREN  WITH  CANCER.  THEY

DON'T  WANT  PITY...THEY  JUST  WANT  THEIR  CHILD  WHOLE,

AND  HEALTHY,  AND  NO  MORE  TESTS  AND  SCANS  AND  LAB

WORK.

IT  IS  FOR  THEM  AND  OTHERS  THAT  I  AM  COMMITTED  TO

INTERCEDE  IN  PRAYER  AND  WILL  ALWAYS  HAVE  A  PRAYER 

LIST  ON  MY  BLOG.

PRAYER  REQUESTS:

LITTLE  ALEX-6  YEAR  OLD  "MAN"  WITH  KIDNEY  AND
AND  LUNG  CANCER.  HE  IS  IN  DESPERATE  NEED
OF  PRAYER,  AND  PEACE  FOR  HIS  FAMILY

CANCER.  SHE  LOVES  THE  LORD  WITH  HER  WHOLE
HEART.

LEILA-CANCER...SHE  IS  BECOMING  VERY  WEAK  AND
STILL  LOOSING  WEIGHT.  PRAY  THAT  HER  BODY  WILL

Hi Debbie, I have no idea why the following thing isn't working on my blog...but thank you so much for following.

I am sorry it is not working for you. Sounds like something else is going on. If you select the circle for "the web" and it disappears...???

Perhaps Google Blog can help?

Thank you for your kink comments. And I am so happy you enjoy my blog. *hugs*

Just finished with the tree. No not every ornament is up, but enough. I have learned to tackle fewer projects thus gaining time for family, friends and community.

Dear Debbie,

Thank you and big Hugs for offering Prayer for Little Alex. I so appreciate that you Posted today and asked the other Prayer Warriors to keep him in Prayer, along with the others that need help from our Father for a Healing.

Blessings to you Sweet Lady
