Christmas devotional

19 December  ~  a short extract is whispered...
There are Christmas trees that have no blossoms. 
There are a thousand ways you can suffer brave.
And no one knows.
No one knows that, your heart quakes a bit inside.  At how headlines hit too close, how in a blink on an ordinary day...
You could just bow your head in the quiet and weep...
As the cold can move you deeper toward the fire, struggling can move you deeper toward God, who warms you with joy.
'Fear not! For behold!'   The solution to fear is the gift of Christmas.
Though the fig tree does not blossom, His love always does.
Ann Voskamp  ~ The Greatest Gift

For the tea lovers

I love tea and cute tea infusers, as I sometimes like to use loose tea.  These two are just the best and would be perfect on any Christmas list...

Grandma's apples

Stewed Apples are what my darling great-grandmother made often for us when I was a child and making it always reminds me of her. Soft and sweet, just like her.

And I left a piece of old sweetpotato in this pot by mistake and now it is growing -
I will need to move it.
