Another Week of Favourites

Its Friday... so its an opportunity to look back over the week with Suzanne at Living to Tell The Tale.  I'm grateful for everything in my life..but here are five that stand out

Nativity Plays

Its that time of year again and I'm so glad that schools (well some) still remember the Reason for the Season. All my children appeared in Nativity Plays growing up. I remember MrJ was a particularly good Joseph one year.. MrM was a fabulous shepherd and MissC was a superb shining star. All these years later,  the baton has been passed to my grandson Little H who was a rather splendid Roman soldier.. who sang his little heart out. For me ...this is one of the things that makes Christmas so magical

Christmas Music
Staying on the subject of the Nativity...I was in the Dentists office waiting for MrD and this came on the radio. I don't care where I am..but every time I hear it my heart swells and I fight back my tears. I am so grateful to have the Saviour in my life.. this song just fills me with joyful emotion. It has to be one of my favourite Christmas songs

Christmas Cards
In these days of the Internet and emails, its so nice to receive hand written mail... especially this time of year. I love getting Christmas cards. They are so personal... and its heart warming to know someone took the time to read the verse..choose the card and write the sentiment. I will always send cards this way.
Happy Anniversary
This fabulous..and adored couple are celebrating their 54th wedding anniversary today. Heavenly Father brought my dear aunt through her recent heart scare so she could spend more wonderful years with my uncle. They are the glue that keeps our extended family together. I love them very much

Happy Anniversary...Part 2
And talking of Anniversaries... MrD and I celebrate our third  this weekend. This man is my tower of strength.. my voice of reason and my biggest supporter. The love and respect he shows me knows no bounds. Every day has been happier than the last. I am so blessed to be married to my soul mate

Love and Hugs

  1. Happy 3rd Anniversary!! And also to your dear aunt and uncle too!
    Little H makes for a sweet little Roman soldier.
    I'm SO glad you're doing great.

  2. Happy Anniversary! You two are blessed to have each other.
    I agree on the Christmas programs. Your little guy is a cutie!

  3. Happy Anniversary to you both! Hope you have a very blessed Christmas also! God bless you both!

  4. I remember doing nativity plays back in primary school!

  5. Happy Anniversary! Some times God saves the best for last! That’s what he did for me. Louis Dean and I have been married 12 years last June!
    Regarding nativity plays, I don’t think they are allowed in any public school anymore. At least not here in Texas and that’s a shame.

  6. Happy Anniversary! I miss seeing the Nativity plays. That was always a highlight for us when my kids were in school. I agree with you about Christmas cards. I love sending and receiving them. I'm enjoying your blog!

  7. happy anniversary!! I love nativity events! Your grandson is a cutie!

    LOVE O Holy Night as well and love when we sing it in church.

    Happy Christmas week!!

  8. Happy third anniversary! What a cute little soldier! We enjoyed children's programs so much as ours were growing up. My little grandson isn't quite old enough for them yet. I think ours were always shepherds until my youngest got to be Joseph one year.

    Glad your aunt is well!

    I love cards and letters, too, especially at Christmastime.

  9. Congratulations to you and hubby! Great photos.
