And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose. . Romans 8:28

truth

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 / KJV
Jesus is our soon coming King
James 5:8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh."

Christmas Joy

He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree. ~Roy L. Smith
One of my favorite things about Christmas was being able to decorate the tree. It still is. Not to make it 'beautiful' or like out of a magazine .. but for memories. All the ornaments hold a special meaning. I have ones handed down from my mom that I made as a child, ones the kids have made, their first ornaments, the year we bought all shatterproof ornaments b/c Hannah tried to pull them off. The year we put them back on and our son thought they were balls to throw and play with so we took them off again :). I said I was not going to get started early ~ but all these cards, songs, movies... i am just getting more and more in the spirit of Christmas:). This card is one I made for the House Mouse Monday Challenge. One of my favorite challenges. I do love my house mouse. I think my best cards have been made with them. I am not sure why .. but they inspire me to do my best as if to do them justice:). Anyway, I hope you are all having a good Monday so far. I hope to make more HM Christmas cards throughout the week.
