and even finish a forgotten painting.
So glad you stopped by.
Hope you will share what you do with a restful day. Have a lovely week.
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." Matt. 11: 28-30 (NIV)

In a previous post written January 13, 2013 I shared author Debbie Macomber's practice of selecting a special word for the new year.
Webster's Thesaurus describes "Hope" as anticipation, aspiration, assurance, belief, desire, expectancy, expectation, confidence, faith, optimism, prospect, trust.
He pointed out that wishing and hope are not the same thing. Wishing differs in the fact that often when one wishes for something they do not believe it will come to be. Whereas "hope" holds that special ingredient - expectancy. It says that the desired outcome can happen.
The apostle Paul wrote in Romans 5:4 "And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us."

With Christmas only a week away -decided this would be my final post for 2016. If you are like me there is still last minute things to accomplish and folks to see.
Will be stopping by to visit each of you in the coming two weeks.
The photos, the words, and the precious visits here have kept me inspired, uplifted and feeling connected to something larger than my tiny space in this world. Thank You.
May you each find special joy this Christmas season...Emmanuel - God with Us!

Over the years I have sampled a variety of drop, shaped , decorated, bar and no bake types.
Some have been so complicated that they may be a couple of days in the making. Others so simple that one can stir them up and have them ready in a short few minutes.
As I and my family have aged some of the fancy favorites have been exchanged for old fashioned goodness.
If anyone wants the recipe -let me know. Will be glad to share.
Have a blessed week!

Here are a few bits of wisdom I have learned over six decades.
Life may bring changes but some things remain the same.
There is nothing like a lovely walk in the woods to clear one's thoughts.
So there you are sweet friends...a few pearls of wisdom. Bet you have some too.
Have a great day.
P.S. Christmas is only four weeks away. My how this year has flown by.
