Twas the Night Before Christmas

A closer look

A pretty bauble on the snowflakes

 LOTV Sentiment

My husband pointed out to me how much I like Christmas lights and 'shiny things'. I have to admit it is true as I have as many Christmas lights as I can find room for in our house and all kinds of 'shiny, glittery, Christmas items as our little house will hold. (If I could leave Christmas up all year long I would not mind it. So, when Christmas Eve is here I am always a bit sad as I know the shiny, glitter, things along with the pretty Christmas lights will soon be tucked away for another year. Much to my husbands relief! LOL! So, I made this little card to share with each of you. I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and that you will each enjoy your family, friends and those you love this year.
 For my sweet friend Amanda, I am praying for you and your family during this difficult time. Please know you are loved and as difficult as this Christmas is for you better ones will come  with  the blessings of wonderful memories of your dad. He is singing with the angels and free of pain and all the frailties our bodies go through.I was thinking of you in particular when I made this card. Like this Precious Moment image we still have to go on with life and the daily chores even when we are hurting. But, the same God who blankets our world with the beautiful snowflakes also provides for us all our needs. Also, He provides those little friends (see that cute little bird) to encourage us. 
Merry Christmas to all....
The Angels Cried (Alan Jackson)

They came from near
They came from far
Following a distant star
To where he lay.
Not being sure of what it meant
But knowing it was Heaven sent
They made there way.
And the creatures gathered 'round
And didn't make a sound
And the Angels cried.
The angels knew what was to come
The reason god has sent his son from up above
It filled their hearts with joy to see
And knowing of his destiny
Came tears of love.
And the creatures gathered 'round
And didn't make a sound
And the Angels cried.
I've often thought about that night
And wondered if they realized that star so bright
Was sent to tell all of the land the son of god
Would soon become the son of man
And the creatures gathered 'round
And didn't make a sound
And the Angels cried.
