Truer Words…




“I have noticed,” she said slowly, “that time does not really exist for mothers, with regard to their children.  It does not matter greatly how old the child is – in the blink of an eye, the mother can see the child again as it was when it was born, when it learned to walk, as it was at any age – at any time, even when the child is fully grown and a parent itself.”

Voyager, Diana Gabaldon, pg 516

Read this this morning and almost started crying!  (I think Christmas time makes me a little emotional!)  I know all  you mothers out there can relate!  As I think about the Christ Child as a baby I can only imagine what his mother felt at the moment of his birth and through the years to follow!


I found this next image when I was searching for the other two I have inserted.  I have this very nativity scene on my tree.  I got it at a garage sale!  I love it and thought I would share it with you!  (Mine is missing some of the parts but it still shares the message of the Savior’s birth.)


May this be a very merry and blessed Christmas!

I am finding that being grateful makes what you have more than enough!!!! I am grateful for my husband of 40+ years, my grown children and their spouses, my eight grandchildren, my two doggies. I am surrounded by a wonderful family and friends who bless my life, and I believe in the undeserved redemption that is mine in Jesus! Hubster and I live in a small mountain village in the heart of Idaho and are so grateful for the beauty that surrounds us.
