Christmas: Joy Comes in the Morning

A beautiful white Christmas. It even snowed on our Christmas Day!

Kelsey and I worked together to create a Christmas ambiance on Christmas Eve. The sights, the sounds, the smells – we turned off the lights and lit our cinnamon and apple pie-scented candles, turned on the Christmas tree lights, played the Charlie Brown Christmas CD and kept everything calm and peaceful.

We even enjoyed the aroma of fresh bread. I baked my first homemade dinner rolls on Christmas Eve. They were delicious!

One of the four ornaments I bought from Kim Ketring at her Etsy store. They looked so nice on our tree!

Kim’s Etsy store is here.

We're so thankful to have our home, our candles, our Christmas decorations, a peaceful place to rest.

Kelsey has learned some Christmas songs on the keyboard, so she played them and I sang them with her. Then we sang several Christmas hymns, all having the theme of Jesus our Savior being born in a manger in Bethlehem and the angels singing and Salvation coming to the world through Him.


Patrick had a little dog like this when he was a little boy. He lost it when we lost our house. Now he has Brown-White back, and it appears that he grew with Patrick!
