Once again it is time to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Your visits throughout the year have meant so much. I just want to thank everyone for all the lovely comments as well as encouraging words. May each of you be blessed with the joy of this special season.
Hope to see you all in the New Year.
"After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east
came to Jerusalem and asked "Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him." (Matt: 2:1-2) NIV

Today I received a lovely unexpected gift in the mail. My friend Debra Smith at monniebeanfolkart.blogspot.com surprised me with this lovely handmade watercolor journal.
I Paint I hope you stop over and check out her lovely blog. She has some gorgeous photos too that you won't want to miss.
Speaking of an Unexpected surprise "And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord." Luke 2:8-11 (NIV)
Hope everyone is having a wonderful day.

"In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin's name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, "Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you." Luke 1:26-28 (NIV)

In art we have three primary colors that cannot be mixed to create yellow, red and blue. Often we are taught the rule of thirds in composition. Great paintings generally carry the same touches of color in three spots - Papa Bear - Mama Bear and Baby Bear.
I know the Bible certainly holds many examples of a threesome. Three visitors appeared to Abraham, Jesus prayed three times for the cup of suffering to pass, Paul asked three times to have the thorn in his life be removed.
Perhaps the number three is divine??
On that note I will share three things that made me smile today.

Please have a wonderful day. Hope you will " look up" too and catch a glimpse of His love!
P.S. speaking of broken - last week I managed to slip in the mud and break my ankle. Maybe some of you will "look up" for me too! :)

We are so glad you stopped to visit. We've just been informed that these are the "Dog Days of Summer". Why would that be...
