Mrs. Sally’s Home

Thursday evening we went to our pastor’s home for a visit.    We ate supper with them and had a wonderful visit.  Mrs. Sally, pastor’s wife, had lots of beautiful Christmas decorations up.  This nativity scene was purchased in Israel.  It is made of olive wood.  Very pretty.

This carousel came from Germany.  You can’t really see it but on top of the carousel are propellers.  The heat from the candles cause the carousel to go around.

This is Miss Izzy.  Pastor Tom tells her all the time she is the most beautiful cat God ever created.  I think she believes him.

Julie and Sadie had a great time together.

Mrs. Sally is a great seamstress.  I think I have mentioned before she is teaching my girls to sew.  This quilt was so bright and colorful.   I thought you all would enjoy seeing it too.

We have still been having vehicle troubles.  Today, we took the girls over to church for play practice.  Our youth christmas play is tomorrow.  Hubby thought the alternator was going bad on the van.  We were going over to C-burg to Auto Zone to have them check it.  We started having more serious trouble with it, so Hubby thought we should just try to make it home.  We didn’t make it.  About 4 miles from home, the van decided that was just all it could do.  It stopped right in the middle of the road.    I’m here to tell you all God is good!  Not more that 5 min. after the van quit a young man came by that we used to go to church with.  He went up to his Grandpaws and got a pickup truck and a chain.  He and Hubby hooked the van up to the truck and he pulled us all the way home.  No charge!    Anyway, it is the alternator.   So I guess the van will have to be parked for a few days until Hubby can get it fixed. 

Well, that’s been our day.  I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.

Hard Worker

We start them working young around here.  Daniel was a big helper Friday as PawPaw, MawMaw and Daddy worked cutting wood.  He rode in the “bumpy truck”.  He was a very tired, very dirty, little boy at days end but definitely a very HAPPY little boy.  He had so much fun and I considered myself blessed to be part of his fun day. 

They have been visiting since Thursday and we had a wonderful visit.  Dave and Hubby went to shoot sporting clays Thursday and Saturday.  We worked on the wood Friday.  David will need to go back to work tomorrow to rest.   We have been having beautiful weather here in Floyd.  Friday, when we were cutting the wood, we worked in short sleeves most of the day.  Temperature was in the mid 50’s.  Unbelievable but great.  Temperature today is 40 degrees.  It is a little overcast with some sun and a slight breeze.  So much better than last week (in my opinion).

I think I will go enjoy some of that sunshine.  Take care and God bless.
