Life...

Is mainly this right now.
Our family is starting a bulk food store, and the grand opening is Monday, April 1 at 9 AM. (No joking!)
We have a lot of things to do before then.
Repackaging, signage, stocking shelves, etc.
So I may or may not be posting anything till after that.

"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works."
2 Timothy 3:16-17

Mercy...

Taken 12/25/12

"Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God."
Hebrews 12:1-2

The Cutest Niece In the World

 No arguments accepted.

Which do you like better, the color version or the B & W version?

"That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

Christmas...

Taken 12/23/12
 I know neither of these pictures have anything to do with the really meaning of Christmas, but they were both part of this past Christmas. 
Taken 12/25/2012
The "thing" in the picture above is a German Sour Cream Twist.
My Grandpa was in Germany when he was in the Army and really like these, so my Grandma found a recipe and the tradition to have them every Christmas morning began in 1954.
We only make these on Christmas morning, or on Christmas eve, (I can only remember one time when we made them before that.), so they are a special treat. And they must be eaten with hot chocolate and oranges. :)

Do you have any special Christmas morning traditions?

"Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith."

Man's Best Friend (Sometimes)

Sadie (My brother and sister-in-law's dog) and Blackie (our dog).
I like these dogs, unless they decide to sun themselves in the flower beds (Blackie!!!). ;)

"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."
Romans 12:1-2
