Things on My Mind
The tea is made and in my cup. Sitting here sipping tea with lots of things on my mind. There are the grandchildren and the things to make them for Christmas presents. The grandchilren's parents and things for them for Christmas. I have been busy sewing and crocheting and knitting and felting. Praying everything will turn out and be of some use to those who receive the particular articles.
Puppies are there on my mind too as they laze around the kitchen by the wood heater. We have only three of the border collie/catahoula crosses left. All three are females.It would be nice to sell them so we could have some grocery and Christmas money. We are trusting the LORD to provide income as we go about doing what we can do. In our minds selling the puppies would help out. The LORD may have different plans though and seeing as we are not clairvoyant we will just have to wait on Him and see His plans unfold.
Our children, all of which are not exactly children anymore, are always on my mind~~their own walks with the LORD. It is always interesting to their papa and I how they perceive life and the ones with children how they are teaching their little ones. When I think of "our" children there is also included in that thought their spouses and girlfriends(boyfriends) I am so glad that the LORD watches over all of them. I sure can't!
Christmas baking is there in the not too far reaches of my mind too. How much to do and which cookies, breads, cakes, pies etc. do I make? I am not even sure yet how many are going to be here for Christmas dinner and throughout the holiday season ~~Just have to do the old Brownie motto and "Be Prepared"
Really like our outside Christmas lights we put up yesterday afternoon. they look so pretty with the snow reflecting back the colours. Think I still like red and blue Christmas lights the best of all combinations.
Christmas has all my favourite colours ~~red, blue, and green~~must be a childhood thing ~~good memories~~good colours~~.
As we go about our daily chores and prepare to go to church this evening (church is in the evening out here) my mind wanders back over the past few months. Trying, challenging, exciting never a dull moment months and this scripture comes to me~~
Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the LORD. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the LORD is at hand.
In Christ's Love
