Under The Christmas Tree


Wrapped a few gifts, put them under the tree. 
A few minutes later I walked in on this scene. 
Tucker under the tree chewing a bone.
Bentley looks like he is posing!

Cut Out Cookies Tip

The following tip came from 
One of her #TuesdayTips
I used this tip this evening while rolling out
 another batch of cut out sugar cookies.
Dan and I both love how the cookies turned out. 
They don't even need icing!

YUM!

Hope
From one of my favorite authors, Ann Voskamp

... so we're just going to go ahead & say it out loud here, Lord --
that it's easy for our hearts to snag on things & to be torn & for us to lose our hope. It's easy for us to have a hole in our heart & all our hope leak right out....
Till we think that our crazy family can't change, that there's no hope left for our hard things, that the person looking back in the mirror at us hasn't got a hope of changing.
And You hold our hearts tonight, and whisper:
"Wait with hope. Hope now; hope always!" Ps.131:3
Christ is coming! Christmas is coming!
And if Christ is coming -- *can anything overcome Him*?
*Light is always stronger than darkness*!
When you *really* believe in Christmas --
you believe there is *really Hope *for everyone, *for everything*.
And our hearts kindle again into flame, Lord,
cupped in Your safely-carrying hands.
~Ann Voskamp
