Ideas For a Christmas Wreath

Hello my dear friends. . .
Hope you have recovered from the
Thanksgiving Holiday
And are you ready to begin the next one?
Of, course this is the big one!
I need a new 
Christmas Wreath
And what better place to look than
 Lots of baubles and bulbs in these!
I am always drawn to anything with 
Christmas Plaid
And Red!
This is different with the red ornaments off to the side.
A berry wreath is always pretty hanging anywhere.
I like the snow frosted pine in this one.
Very eye catching.
Hmmm! There are a lot of pretty wreaths out there
And Pinterest certainly has a collection of them
I had better come up with something.  . 
The decorating mood has come to my house.
I am ready to get it all started.
I kind of like to wait until
December 1st.
Let's see what I come up with. . 
Be sure to check back. . .K

Fiddling With My Blog

Well, I have spent most of my day trying
to get my Blog to look somewhat outstanding.
Alas, I must say I don't think it is anywhere near
what I would like it to be. . .Sad to say
I will have to play some more.
I's just not getting what I want.
But while I have been fiddling with the blog
I have done some cute collages or mosaics whichever 
you prefer to call them. . 
 I really like this one.
Now, if I could just get it in my
Header I would be happy.  
I need to read the tutorials again on 
making your own Header and blog.
Hope you are having a wonderful day.
See you tomorrow.

Still Not Sure!

As you can see I have changed things 
Just a little. . .NO!
A Lot!
I think I will have to put the 
Under Construction sign out. . 
I am trying to give my blog
A new little look. And in the process I have
Kind of (NO! not kind of)
Messed things up. . 
I hope I get this all worked out.
Do you ever change things, and then
Realize, you had a pretty good thing going to begin with?
And you wish you had never changed.
Well that is how I am thinking right now.
I am still working on this. . .So. . . .Be Patient.

Oh, boy! I have a mess!
I am trying to make my blog fancy
And use my own skills to make my header. . 
Sorry. . . it isn't working!
It is late and I have been working 
On this header for HOURS. . 
I will have to continue tomorrow
Because my computer won't do what I want
Ya, that's it I will blame it on my computer. . 
Not my Brain. . 
Hopefully I will have this figured out
Come back please. . .

Thanksgiving Blessings

The day will soon be arriving when I take
Time to gather with family and  friends
To give Thanks for the bounties of this earth.

To you my dear friends I wish you an early
Happy Thanksgiving.
I will be spending the day at my home
 With my two youngest son's
 Blake and Mark and their families.
Four healthy, active grandchildren
 Will grace my Thanksgiving table.
To this I am thankful.
 I would like to share the hymn we sang in 
Church On Sunday
It is an old 1626 Hymn from the Netherlands.
Prayer of Thanksgiving
We gather together to ask the Lord's blessing
He chastens and hastens his will to make known
The wicked oppressing now cease from distressing
Sing praises to his name; 
He forgets not his own.

Beside us to guide us our God with us joining
Ordaining, maintaining his kingdom divine.
So from the beginning the fight we were winning,
Thou, Lord wast at our side;
All glory be thine.

We all do extol thee, thou leader triumphant
And pray that thou still our defender wilt be
Let thy congregation escape tribulation,
They name be ever praised!
O Lord, Make us free!
Wherever you may be 
Whatever your circumstance
My God bless you and your loved ones.
May He keep you safe in His tender care.

 After receiving 12 inches of snow.
I walked through the park to capture
The beauties of 
 It was serene and quiet. . 
Snow falls so gently,  it leaves no sound.
 I live in Utah. . .and Snow is precious to us.
We depend on the white fluff for our very existence.
We are the second driest state. . 
We receive very little rain. . our source of moisture is
Heavenly Father heard our many prayers asking for moisture.
My home town received 12 inches.
Beautiful. . . Gorgeous. . . !

Today I am Thankful For. . . .

Now this is a funny little post
To start off my month of
But. . . .
I am Thankful for my 
 My bedroom is nothing fancy.
But it is peaceful, restful, and comforting.
After a long day and my body and mind are weary
I can retreat to the comfort and peace of
My Bedroom.
 My bed is clean, and comfortable.
During the day my bed is made
And looks comfortable and peaceful.
I don't have a television in my bedroom. . .
I feel that distracts from the peacefulness of the room.
Just stop and think of the millions of people who
Have no beds, no peaceful restful place to lay their heads.
Today, I am thankful for
My Bedroom.
This little pillow sits at the foot of my bed.
It is a daily reminder for me to do
Something that makes me happy.
Because I have a restful room and 
Warm comfortable bed
My day can begin with happiness.
After kneeling at the side of my bed
In morning prayer. . .I can begin my day.
 The Lord has blessed me with a
Beautiful Bedroom.

And what are you thankful for today?
