1 Corinthians 10:12-14

12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall! 13No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.

Hello everyone

Posted by Ginger~~Enchanting Cottage

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. I think my Christmas was the most relaxed Christmas I have ever had. My husband and I never got out of our Jammie's and watched movie after movie and we ate left overs from Christmas Eve ( that's when we saw our children with our 3 grandchildren) We ate left overs Christmas day so I didn't even cook. My body needed that day SO much I have just been so tired. I have missed all of my blogging friends and I can't wait to get a chance to go to your blogs and catch up! Have a wonderful day

Just a small note to say hello to everyone and that things are so busy here that I will be back after Christmas. I hope everyone has a beautiful Christmas with family and loved ones.

Matthew 1:18-25

18Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
19Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.
20But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
21And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
22Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
23Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
24Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:
25And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.

Here are a couple of pictures of some napkins that were in a 1998 issue of Victory mag. I thought of Cindy from She go a special gift from a blogger friend and they were napkins almost exactly like these. Check out her blog and see. A person can never ever ever have too many of these precious napkins. I will hand all mine down to my granddaughter. I hope that she is like me, I want to teach her how to cook, how to garden, how to clean,
my husband will have to teach her how to do laundry. I want to teach her that all of these things can be special not just chores. Its what we make of it. I want to teach her the difference between thread counts in sheets , I want to teach how to make a good pie crust, to cut herbs from the garden to cook with I want to teach her that some weeds are good for you and there is a weed that is BAD for you!! I want to teach her the feeling of drinking out of a tea cup instead of a mug.
I want to teach her that there is an art to listening to a friend when they are talking and I want to teach her about GOD!

This scripture was on my heart today.

2 Corinthians 12:9-10 (King James Version

King James Version (KJV)
Public Domain
9And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
10Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

Talented People

Posted by Ginger~~Enchanting Cottage

Okay we were all blessed with talent, but I am still trying to find mine. But some of my blogging buddies love to knit and sew, here are a few books that are just so pretty .I thought you would enjoy looking at them.

And here would be the books that I would have to buy!!!!!

But I am sure they are very helpfun in the inside. So I guess I shouldn't judge a book my its cover.

We Have an Angel

Sunday night my husband was in pretty bad car accident he is 53 and this is his first accident. What a blessing that he was not hurt, he had some pain but it is better. It could of been so much worse, I thanked the Lord for taking care of him that night. Things happen so fast in our lives that we need to be ready.

I think ( for now ) that the tree will go here where this table a lamp are, it just depends on the size of the tree. what do you all think?
