After about 15 years of not putting up a Christmas tree (shortly after we acquired three kittens and then continued to add), we decided this year to try with a small tree on a small table. For the most part, it’s working. Of course, this go-around, all the ornaments are shatterproof! This is not a good picture at all as the ceiling light was on and reflecting in the window so the lights, etc., on the tree don’t really show. But, you get the gist. After having the tree up for a few days, I thought we were going to actually pull it off. We came really close as you can see. But he didn’t stay there too long and he didn’t try to do anything to the tree (shocker)!
FROM OUR HOUSE TO YOURS, MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR
And for all of those who may not celebrate Christmas, HAPPY HOLIDAYS
Since this might be my last post for the year, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have gifted me with your likes, your comments, and your friendship. Even though I may never have the opportunity to meet with you in person, you have touched my heart and become a part of my life. I never thought I would see the day that I would have friends all around this big beautiful world. I pray wholeheartedly that each and every one of you will enjoy a blessed holiday season. I hope to “see” you all next year! I wish you all a very Merry Christmas (for those who celebrate) and a Happy New Year!

Hallelujah—Hebrew for “Praise ye the Lord.” But what does it really mean? As we celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ this Easter, discover how this ancient exclamation of joy, hope, and love is a fitting summary of Christ’s incomparable mission—and His promise of new life for us all.
Easter is a time to remember all that Jesus Christ has done for us. It’s also a time to consider His simple invitation that has the power to transform us forever:
“Come, follow me.”
Please don’t leave without listening to the world’s largest virtual Hallelujah Chorus!
