Bless This House.....

Hey there!  It's Thursday evening and the house is quiet....peaceful...tranquil:)  Makes me smile:)  My son and I put up a small Christmas tree this afternoon.  He was so excited and couldn't wait to buy some candy canes for the tree.  I love this time of year and kids make it even more special!

It's tough to write this but just recently my family has been given some heartbreaking news about my dad.  He has some health concerns and we will need some prayers.  He's been diagnosed with cancer and he will begin treatment soon.  We, as a family, are hopeful and optimistic that he will get through this trial.  He's a strong guy and I hope he fights like he has never fought before......Although we have been given this trial there is still much to be thankful for during this holiday season.  We have HOPE that he will kick cancer to the curb ....we are thankful for modern medicine.....we are thankful for knowledgeable doctors...we are thankful for our FAMILY and FRIENDS that have been there with their support and a hug.....and most importantly we are thankful for our FAITH.  I love him so much and ask that you keep him in your prayers.

I would like to share a project that I recently completed....I found this scrap piece of wood at a yard sale. I decided to leave it as is and put some lettering on it.  (My mom actually suggested that I leave the board in it's natural state)  I used my handy dandy cricut and went to work....Here it is in finished form....Although I haven't put any hardware on the back to hang it.  It's a bit it may sit unfinished for awhile:)

If you're reading thanks!
Have a wonderful evening.

  1. Visiting from The Inspiration Gallery. First I am sorry about your father's cancer. Prayed your family will know His comfort during this stressful time. Next, I sure like your sign. How about a surface to lean it against in one of the "public rooms" in your home! No hardware needed. Hope you have a good Thanksgiving! Linda
