Eternal Gifts

This Christmas, my mother in law gave me Kim Hill's recent Christmas c.d. I have enjoyed it so much, but I have nearly worn out one of the songs called "Eternal Gifts." It was written by Leigh Nash and first preformed by Kate York. This song may be my new favorite Christmas song. I found it on Youtube , but don't have enough sense to post it on to my blog. You have got to go listen to it on Youtube, it is under Leigh Nash. Another wonderful c.d. is Matt Wertz-Snow Globe.

Eternal Gifts

Santa knows what I want for Christmas,
But Jesus knows what I need.
It can't be purchased wrapped up and placed
under an eight foot tree.

I need patience and kindness-virtues like these
to bend on my knee at the manger

Santa may bring things that last for the year
but Eternal gifts come from the Savior.

Some days come when I'm plain selfish
I can't think of no one but me
Then I think of all that I've been blessed with
and how it is better to give than receive

I need faithfulness, love and generosity
to open my home to a stranger

Santa may bring things that last for a year but
Eternal gifts come from the Savior

LOVE LOVE LOVE this song!!!!!!

I am a proud Aunt! My sister in law gave birth to BEAUTIFUL Meg on Saturday. We can't wait to meet her!

Let me just say that I am TIRED. I want to do nothing more than make coffee, find a good Christmas movie and wear my pink, fluffy robe. Soon and very soon I hope I will get to do this.

The lyrics are beautiful!

A few times recently, when the kids are settled for their nap/rest time, I have taken the computer into my room and pulled up a feel-good holiday movie off of Netflix and relaxed with a cup of hot chocolate (can't do coffee)-a nice little escape for an hour or so! :)

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
