A moment in time-My Coffeeberry Cottage.

One small moment in time.....
That's truly it.
When I was a young wife I would get so upset if Christmas Eve or Day did not go well in relationships.I never cared what happened to the recipes  or decor,I expected minor illness. Just whether everyone got along was   a huge issue to Me.For any young Mothers or Wives out there take Our advice (Us elders).It's only one day out of the whole year and only one year out of the rest of Your life. Things do get better,people do make-up.Keep Your eyes on Your relationship with Jesus.

Enjoy Your relationship with HIM.All else will change.
A couple changes for Me in later years.I go to My daughters houses on Christmas day now.I passed the baton to those four young healthy daughters of Mine. No more fireplaces,I now have My Christmas bright red fakie,and .........

Mrs Claus now Rules.Santa has been relegated to the porch.I know who the real Santa is and SHE is Mrs. Claus.

"Grammie,church is over,please can I take this dress off now?"

Yes!Seasons Greetings to all My fiends.Love Denise                                                                  Partying with Life On Lakeshore Drive and    Seasonal Sundays Tablescaper found on My sidebar.

Oh dear Denise,

I am finding as I get older and "wiser" (I hope!) that less is more. Less fuss, more focus on the silence, on noticing what is around me, and the people around me. Bless you! And thank you so much for coming to visit my post. May the beauty of nature inspire you this Christmas! Anita

Hi Denise. Very wise words for us at the beginning of this post. I think as we get older, we get to realize just what is really important in our lives. Oh, I agree with you completely. Mrs Claus is the REAL Santa Claus. Hee Hee!! I love all your little ornaments. So pretty. Love the photo of your little granddaughter in her pretty dress, and your caption!! Wishing you and your family a very happy and peaceful Christmas Denise.

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.
