DID I EVER TELL YOU I COLLECT OLD LADY TEAPOTS?
Hello dear friends, thanks for stopping by. Our sermon this morning was on giving thanks for everything. I do have to practice that a lot more than I do. This past week I have still been stuck on the early Christmas thing. (Get a life Martha!) I went into my basement today, which is not easy, to pull out my Christmas. Instead, I found 6 bins of Thanksgiving that I pulled out. I just could not do it. I guess old habits die hard.
Did you notice my new blog? Isn't pretty? I just love it. Debbie did it for me again, she just gets me! Her button is on my side bar, in case you are interested. I think she just works magic! So, my blog is ready for Christmas. I think part of the problem I am having is, that I seem to be always tired. I go the the doctor at the end of the month, but that does not help the now.
On Saturday, I forgot about the PS post, I just forgot! I did go shopping to buy our church a new Christmas tree. I went to Stats, in Pasadena. If you live in Southern California, that is a must stop at Christmas time. You see the best of the best there. It is so hard to just pick one thing. It is pricey, so you have to practice some control.
I also found this great little creamer at an estate sale. Did I tell you I collect, old lady teapots? This will go just perfect with my collection. I have also begun to change out my pictures to winter and Christmas pictures and plates. Maybe the trouble is I just have too, much stuff? You think?
My daughter, Monique, is going to have surgery on Friday, the 13th. They are going to remove some tumors. She wants so much to have another baby, my prayer is that this surgery does not end all hopes for her. We do have Maya and are so thankful for her. Monique is young and her desire for more children is so strong, so please pray for her. I also have a dear blogger friend who is having surgery on the 16th of this month. So it is a little stressful now.
My neighbor, Paula, has offered to help me take my Christmas bins out on Tuesday. I really would like her help. I just think she might say I have too much stuff for Christmas. I don't know why that bothers me, but it does. I know I have too much stuff! What is up with me? I need prayer!
However, back to the sermon, I will give thanks to the Lord for all things, even tumors! Please pray that I can have the strength I need to do what I so desire to do. Blessings, Martha
