Merry Christmas and Happy 2014!!!!

Christmas comes and goes so quickly, at least it did for me.  There is so much preparation of food, and making hand crafts for loved ones, then it is over before you know it. But, the special memories that we keep in our hearts are of family being together and watching those grand children opening up their gifts, the smiles on their faces are priceless.  But foremost is celebrating Jesus birthday, he was sent to this world as a baby to die for us and bring salvation to the world, that is so amazing to me!  The love God has for us is beyond anything we could ever imagine or explain.  It's a lot to take in, but how grateful I am for Jesus and for His birth and Christmas.  It's what it's all about isn't it? 

I wanted to share a few pictures we took on Christmas, the first one is of my daughter and me holding the quilt I made for her.  She asked for one and I wasn't sure she would like the colors, but she loved it!!! That was so special.  This quilt wouldn't have been completed if it wasn't for my sweet daughter in law Mandy,.  See my sewing machine broke and she came to the rescue bringing her machine for me to use after my desperate phone call one evening, how grateful I am to her! The other photo is of our family, at least the ones that could be here this Christmas.  I love them all so very much and just wished that we all could have been together.  My oldest son Ken and family is in Virginia getting ready to move to Fallon Nevada later on this month, so he will be closer for us to visit.  It never is the same when all my kids and grandkids cannot be here.  But they were in our hearts!!!

This will be a short post today,  the new year also crept up on me pretty quickly, I still can't believe it's 2014!!! Wow, it's time to regroup, refocus on the new year and what God has in store for me.  I know it will include making things, creating patterns and loving those grandbabies of mine.  I want to wish every one of you the best year ever - just keep looking up and know you are loved by an awesome God, he is there for us no matter what we do.  His mercy is new each and every day, what hope that gives me!  Also the fact that I know that His plan for my life is better than anything I can plan for myself.  God Bless you and Happy New Year all!!!
