Great and much needed reminder for myself: "Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. " 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Putting together the vintage family tree with @chesneyraine tonight. Since we're coming and go so much of Dec this year we decided to fore go #Costco 's 7 ft Douglas fir for a 2 ft cone shaped potted rosemary mini "tree" that I'll plant outside in the spring. Sure does give off a wonderfully intense fragrance. 🌲🎄🎁
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my zany, cheerful, huggy, dancing, compassionate, thoughtful, goofy, life-loving, smart, generous, beautiful 12 year old @chesneyraine #BonusBaby#LifeWouldBeDullWithoutHer #😍thisGirl
She's growing in wisdom and stature and in favor with both God and people. Paraphrase of Luke 2:52 .
