Tuesday Turn About #232 Christmas Gingerbread Love: We are celebrating the Christmas season with gingerbread and more!
TUESDAY TURN ABOUT #232 CHRISTMAS GINGERBREAD LOVE
Want even MORE Christmas ideas and inspo? Check out last week’s party.
Welcome to the second party for this December!
This week, I’m sharing all things gingerbread, DIY ‘soldiers’ standing at attention, PLUS a classic Christmas decor post! We’re loving all the Christmas inspiration!
Lynne is still spending time with her family. I’m sure she will share what it going on her life when she returns.
Adventures at the Abode
Lancaster, PA is bright and sunshiny today (well, Monday, when I’m writing this). BUT, it did snow during the night, and the ground had a blanket of white when I woke up!
The first few days I was here, we had even MORE snow! I had asked the Lord for at least one day of snow, and He was kind enough to give us TWO days (now three)! It was never forecasted on the news (or on my app), but GOD had it on His forecast for me!
Pray for Mom…
Mom came down with a virus the day after I left. It’s quite bad, and she is not doing well. Whenever my sister or I go on vacation, SOMETHING always happens to push us to rest in the Lord even more! Please be praying for Mom’s quick healing. This is definitely a trial. We are SUPER grateful that Mom was placed on hospice this past week!
We also received news on Saturday that my children’s father is quite ill. I won’t share details at this point, but he is in the hospital, so please be praying for him and my kids.
Enough Debbie-downer info! God is good, even through these hard things, and we trust Him to be glorified in all of this!
Our weekly tips will return after the first of the year.
Now… let’s looks at some ‘purdy’ and fun festive features!
