  • “Oh, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person; having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pour them all out, as they are, chaff and grain together, knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then, with the breath of kindness, blow the rest away.” Dinah Mulock Craik


Practicing the Presence of God

  • He is always near you and with you. Do not leave Him by Himself. You would think it uncivil to leave a friend by himself who was visiting you. Why abandon God and leave Him by Himself? ~Brother Lawrence

  • Thoughtfulness is the beginning of great sanctity. If you learn this art of being thoughtful, you will become more and more Christlike, for His heart was meek and always thought of others.

Dear Donna, Im so glad we were able to be a part of your Christmas this year. You have been and will always be in our hearts and in our prayers. The tree looks beautiful. Merry Christmas. Love, Ruth

Oh, Donna -- I'm in tears! It's beautiful. And, as I scrolled down, able to see each and every lovely ornament, I couldn't help but be grateful for *you*, and for the love that shines through this post.

Love and blessings to you and your dear family, Donna!


Thank you for letting us be part of your Christmas!

I am sending my ornament tomorrow. I'm sorry it won't be on your tree on Christmas day, but at least it will arrive in the Christmas season!

Love and hugs to you and your beautiful family with your beautiful tree!

God Bless!

Yes, thank *you* for your wonderful post. Beautiful.

Merry, Blessed, Christmas.

Beautiful post. Merry Christmas!! Those ornaments are wonderful.

Donna, the tree and ornaments are lovely! Merry Christmas!

Wow! How beautiful in every way! I wish I had known about this and participated. What a blessing for the givers and the receiver!! Merry Christmas, indeed!

Your tree is beautiful! Thank you for letting us be a part of your family's Christmas. :o)

Those are beautiful ornaments and a beautiful expression of the love of Christ! I found myself nearly crying. btw, we LOVE our Christmas pickle in our home. Our boys are always wanting someone to hide it so they can find it and get a prize!

  • Then, without realizing it, you try to improve yourself at the start of each new day; of course, you achieve quite a lot in the course of time. Anyone can do this, it costs nothing and is certainly very helpful. Whoever doesn't know it must learn and find by experience that a quiet conscience makes one strong. ~Anne Frank
