Hello Ladies!  Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 292!   Hoping your Christmas was wonderful. I feel like we have had a Christmas Miracle.  My son has been doing so good, each day better than the last. You pray for a miracle, but when you get it, it is almost more than you can handle.  That is how I feel right now.  Needless to say this was the best Christmas I have ever had.  

Now it is time to face reality and take down the Christmas decorations, it is always a little sad to me.  Normally, I have everything down by New Year's Day.  This year,  I am not going to be in a big rush. I have learned a few hard lessons recently, most importantly, focus on what the real meaning of Christmas is.   I am so thankful for what He has done for our family.  My son should have died and yet, today he is enjoying time with his best friend. God is so good.  

I am sharing my Christmas mugs.  I love to have them out all month long.  It is so fun to watch loved ones picking their mug each time.  

I am also sharing a Christmas Poinsettia Tea Cup by Royal Patrician of England.

Thank you for being so faithful to this blog, even when I have not been able to share.  I have learned so much about you this year as well.  Have a wonderful week.  Be careful and Happy New Year!  Martha

Air Jordan 4 Retro Yellow Black, Jacob asks Laban to let him pass through Laban whole flock. Laban will then remove from the flock every speckled or spotted (reddish brown) sheep, every reddish brown lamb and the speckled or spotted (white markings) among the goats and give these existing animals to Laban. Then Jacob promises that he will tend Laban remaining unblemished pure white sheep and pure black goats but if any future offspring are born abnormally colored, Jacob will keep these as his wages.

Jordan 3 Black Cement Outfit, Realized existing homes were very difficult to get to any standard of efficiency without a lot of work, Jennifer told me. We are still building new homes with the same standards as 60 years ago. Building homes may seem like a bit of a stretch for a tech focused accelerator like YC.

Rhodes saw that there were fortunes to be made in diamonds, but it wasn't the only way. Cecil Rhodes had already established himself as somewhat of an entrepreneur with his Fruit Farms, and so Rhodes started providing services to the other miners, firstly water but then moving into mining equipment. With the profits from this business, Cecil would re invest buying up land and other mines.. {tag: Yeezy Black White}

Air Jordan 11 Retro White Black, According to a list released by New Zealand police, the Australian bodies are likely those of Julie Richards, 47, and her daughter Jessica, 20 of Queensland; Krystal Browitt, 21, from Melbourne; Richard Elzer, 32, and Karla Matthews, 32, of Coffs Harbour, NSW; and Zoe Hosking, 15, from Adelaide. There was confusion in NZ on Friday when Australian Foreign Minister Marise Payne says she understood the six bodies returned were all Australian. Police commissioner Mike Bush called that premature.
