Christmas Tea in July

 Expectation of cool crisp holy Christmas days and nights.

My old Christmas friends come out to warm My heart once more.

Memories of Christmases long past.Some sparkle with glee,some hold sadness yes but Comfort was always right there.  

Special China dishes are mine now, but those sweet dear ladies are the ones I'll never forget. 


My memories of when We were all young.

Now I see through the next generations twinkle in their eye.


Sip a cup of cheer.......

to the next generation.As they open their sweet gifts this year I hope to be there and I will give thanks again for so many  sweet gifts HE has given Me.

Hi Denise: I am so sorry you have not been able to join our party. I do not know how to fix it. Terri always does the linky for me. Have you tried joining through Terri's site? You can contact her at nliten@usa.net. I am not sure what the problem is. I have that trouble sometimes too. Please forgive me. Blessings, Martha

Good morning dear Denise! These are all the memories that will one day be the shadows that your children and their children will see and love. SO YOU TOO ARE FROM WHITTIER? I was visiting in Garden Grove three weeks ago....it just went by too fast.

Wishing you a splendid day my dear, and hoping that you are well! Anita

Sweet post and beautiful presents....Christine

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
