Picture post

IF has been causing me so much anxiety and sadness lately and so, I decided I would do a picture post of some things that have brought me a little bit of joy in the middle of the hardships...


Christmas lights on our first home!


Decorating the tree and putting up ornaments like this one-my Gp carved and painted it for all the grandchildren one Christmas.


Putting our ornament from our first Christmas on the tree.


Putting up our little Christmas tree and decorating the mantle with garland, white lights and glittery decorations.


See...glittery decorations snuggled amongst the garland! :)


Getting to put out little Christmas trinkets, like this one my dear friend gave me last year!


Wreathes with big, red, sparkly bows on the front door!



I could keep going with the decorations I love, for example, my Willow Tree nativity is beautiful and the little tree I have by my sewing machine is fun, also...but I think y'all get the idea...

Tonight I'm feeling blah, but having a candle lit, movie going and my sweet husband home is helping me feel better! Any anxiety that's lingering in my heart and soul, I'm offering up for my prayer buddy, that tonight the Lord will hear the prayers on her heart!

"Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet."

Thank you so very very much for sharing, I just had a very rough few days and this really made my day! Made me smile in the midst of darkness.

Awaiting-I'm praying for a quick recovery and that your husband puts the lights on the tree bc it really is calming to have the tree lit up at night!!

A Martha...-I'm glad you enjoyed. Sometimes it's the little things-glittery decorations, a tree lit up with lights- that can bring a little bit of joy in the midst of pain and anxiety!
