47 days to Christmas.


This is what I bought from iTunes today. And it's so beautiful I feel like crying. Acoustic. Soulful. Incredible. I will use it to inspire me for Christmas and to make my Christmas cards!
It SNOWED and is still snowing here! we have about an inch of snow on the ground. So yes, today is the PERFECT day to start thinking of Christmas. It always reminds me that Jesus makes us as white as snow. Isa 1:18 This is God's Message: "If your sins are blood-red, they'll be snow-white. If they're red like crimson, they'll be like wool. Nothing is as white as snow. And as pure. If the sun shines on it, it sparkles. That's just how we are. White as snow... with sparkles when God's light shines on us. Shine on.

happy snow day
Love
Wilna

Oh cool! I didn't know Josh Groban had a Christmas album...I shall have to buy it LOL!

Isn't the snow awesome??!! I always feel that there is something so magical about the first snow of winter...the waking up and the first look outside to a beautiful blanket of white...I just love it. I think ahead to Christmas and snow angels and building snowmen with the kids...what a great place we live in!!

I hope you're having an awesome day Wilna! I think of you much more often than I get a chance to write...be blessed!

I just saw Josh's album and have it on my 'to buy' list for the season. Now it's a 'for certain' on my list! Funny...it just keeps getting longer and really I keep thinking there is NOTHING that I need in life! Hopefully I will have opportunities to GIVE much this season. I am blessed. God indeed DOES shine His light into those who open their hearts to Him. I love that you are always so encouraging, so warm, so thoughtful and so willing to share your heart.
Enjoy the first bit of snow this season. Our leaves are still falling in our yard. Snow will be here soon though. =) Love and miss you always!

Willa,

Dit was great om al jou blogs te lees en ook al die comments daarmee saam. Stem saam met al die maaikies dis ongelooflik inspirerend. Dankie dat jy ons herinner dat ons "sparkle" soos sneeu as God se lig op ons skyn. Hier by ons is daar nou nie sneeu nie, maar die somer is hier en ek is voorwaar ongelooflik dankbaar daarvoor. Die foto van jou en moeder is tog te kosbaar. Stuur asseblief groete en liefde.
