May you have a Merry Christmas
and a Blessed 2016 filled with
hope, love, peace, and joy!
I am taking next week off,
so I will not have a “What’s New” post this month,
but I hope to be back here on January 5, 2016. 🙂
Thank you all so much for being here in 2015!
Whether you comment or just read in the background,
I care about each one of you.
I know God knows and sees each of you,
and I pray He fills your hurting heart with love
and with His hope, healing, and freedom!
One of my husband’s and my favorite Christmas movies
is “Songs of the Season.” I want to leave you at the end of this year
with a clip from it where Fern, with her newly found confidence,
sings with her music teacher at the end of the movie.
I love this song! Especially these words:
“In the dark of winter I still can sing
Because God has sent the Baby King.
Whatever troubles this old world can bring
Christmas reminds me that love can change everything.”
“Song of the Heart (Love Changes Everything)”
Linking up with:
Holley – Coffee For Your Heart
Jennifer – Tell His Story

Hi Trudy! Enjoy your time off…I know I did! It’s good to take a little rest and be present with the family and soak in the grace of the season.
