I know I said I'd be back from my blogging break around the first of February - but it feels as though God literally came down and took complete control of my January! And how could I say no?

These jello squares were a new recipe I tried for Christmas. I quickly took this picture using one of the leftover squares - just … [Read more...] about Christmas and Snow
You want to know what I love most about Christmas? This Baby. Without this Baby, my soul would be damned to eternal hell. Without this Savior, I would never get to see the Father. Without the Risen Lord, I would be forever lost. But there are no "withouts". The Baby came, the Savior died, and the Lord is risen.
