Merry Christmas!

Dear Readers,

Merry Christmas! I hope that your Christmas was filled with joy and hope! I wanted to encourage you to remember the REAL reason for Christmas, isn't the gifts, food, or even the precious time we spend with family and friends, it's so much more then that! as Christians this time is special because we take time to celebrate the Birth of our Savior Jesus Christ and the salvation and hope He has brought to this world! It is such a great comfort to know that Christ is reigning since the past, now in the present, and for all eternity! Friends, we have so much to the thankful for!

"For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon His kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgement and with justice from henceforth even for ever. the zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this."
Isaiah 9:6,7


Merry Christmas!!!

Spring, Spring, Spring!

Dear Readers,

I am so happy that spring is finally here!!!!! I have been able to take some pictures of the new flowers and the new plants that are finally coming alive at our house in Belton! I truly LOVE Spring the best out of all the seasons, it brings hope to me! What is your favorite season of the year?? Why?





"For behold, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land"
Song Of Solomon 2:11-12



"Spring flowers are in blossom all over. The whole world's a choir- and singing! Spring warblers are filling the forest with sweet arpeggios. Lilacs are exuberantly purple and perfumed, and cherry trees fragrant with blossoms."
Song of Solomon 2:12-13a 



I am also starting my own herb garden this year! I have had so much fun watching my plants grow and I can't wait to use it in my food, and for medicine!
Most of the herbs are medicinal which will be very interesting! I have been studying how to make medicines and when and what to use them for. If someone has done this sort of garden before and you have some tips please, please, please, let me know!! Well, I hope you have enjoyed this post as much as I have in writing it! Till' next time!

In Loving Memory of Paul Valdez

Dear Readers,


This past Friday at 5:10 Am, a very dear member of our family passed away unexpectedly. Although he wasn't our grandfather, we loved him and will miss him so much. My grandmother was taken to the hospital due to stress of it all but we thank God that she is stable and is at home. Though it is hard to suffer the loss of a loved one it brings to mind that "The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away, blessed be the name of the Lord." May HE be glorified in our sorrow, exalted in our loss, and magnified in our grief. We have been shown that God gives the grace we need to endure everything He sends our way, and we have to trust Him in all our ways.  Please pray as my Grandmother is still grieving the loss of her husband, and for us as we help her and grieve as well.



Your Friend,
Haviland~
