Welcome December!

I suppose my long absence bears a little explaining. The short of it is...many topics, ideas, thoughts and recipes were on my mind to share but it seemed to me that I was just one in the multitude of voices. I kept asking myself the question, "Is what I'm contributing making a difference?"

After having received several inquiries about my absence, I have determined that apparently yes, my humble contributions were making a difference in my dear readers' hearts and lives. I want to take a moment and thank my faithful readers. It warms my heart to know that you've opened your door to me.

So here it is the first of December. There's lots of excitement this time of year centered around one of the most celebrated holidays in the world - the birth of Jesus Christ.

Our church family has already enjoyed a lovely evening with our ladies and their guests singing Christmas carols, Chinese food buffet, sweet fellowship and laughter, gifts and an earnest reminder of what's really important this time of year - Drawing people to Jesus Christ.

One way I plan to do that this year in my neighborhood is by delivering a gift basket to our neighbors. Every year I look forward to gathering a few delights, wrapping them up and dropping them off at homes that directly surround ours.

In fact, one neighbor girl let me know that a special treat of homemade peanut butter cups that I shared with them a few months ago was still on her mind! So I'm planning to include those in their basket.

So, that's what's going on at our house. I hope you are taking the time to
really enjoy this Christmas holiday time and all the while remembering that Jesus is the Reason for the Season!

Wishing you blessings,
