You Decorated My Life

















My Christmas tree ornaments not only reflect my taste, they reflect ME! Can you see me in them looking out at you? I'm waving! This year, two very special little girls helped decorate my tree. The second, third, and fourth pictures are the ornaments our granddaughter Anne Marie made for us. She did this by taking the top off a clear ornament, pouring paint inside, and swirling it around. It makes a rainbow effect around the ball, so pretty. The last pictures are little Ella and the ornament she made for us in school. When we picked her up and brought her home with us yesterday, she was so excited to show us and hang it on our tree! These ornaments are the most special ones on the tree, but I have others that I will be showing you later. Here is something else that has decorated my lfe. YOU, my faithful followers!! You have decorated my life with your wonderful uplifting comments, the gift of your friendship, kindness, and loyalty. And in some cases, your cards, presents, and very helpful advice. Merry Christmas, you guys are the best!!!! But here is the best person in the world to follow, who has an out of this world giveaway!


When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." john 8:12

How unique that you took pictures of your reflection in Christmas Tree Ornaments! You do reflect the love of Christ with this blog. And the children are extra-ordinaire! May Your Christmas Be Blessed.

Good reflection of you. Are these very big baubles?

I haven't seen my friends for a long time. We so of drifted, for three of them that winter was the last time I saw them.

I am more interested to find my room mate from Kingsville, Ontario.
