Christmas on my blog.

This past weekend was wonderful. we had a mostly quiet time except for Friday evening when we had our Christmas Banquet @ the Church which is always a wonderful time.

Friday I went with our school on the kids' privilege day and i ICE SKATED!! It was so much fun! I will post a picture as soon as my friend Gen send me some pictures. I ice skated when I was 9 or 10 and now again for the first time. I prayed a LOT and I didn't fall... what fun.

Today the kids are home for the Christmas Break and I love having them here. I just do. Jaku works today for the last time until next week so we will be doing a lot of family things.


I decided that because I probably will not be around "cyberly" this week, I am going to be giving away 2 beautiful Anna Griffin Scrapbooking kits. There is more than 50 pieces in each kit including some (my favorite) fabric embellishments. It's beautiful! And perfect for scrapbooking your Christmas pictures. Just leave me a Christmas comment! I will pick the winners no later than Friday! This picture is one I found online (there's much more stuff in the ones I have)

I am currently reading this book... and it's in one word... absolutely amazing!! I am enjoying every word and I am so inspired.

A thought for today! Luke 1 He will be great, be called 'Son of the Highest.' The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David; He will rule Jacob's house forever— no end, ever, to his Kingdom."

Merry Christmas
Love
Wilna

(Luk 2:10) And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings, of great joy, which shall be to all people.

(Luk 2:11) For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.

Here it is Wilna; the best Christmas message I know. : ) May you and your family be blessed as we celebrate the birth of our Savior! -Alisa

Phyllis said...

Merry Christmas to you and your family. I found your blog a month or so ago, and love the Bible verses you use. It's wonderful to find someone who shares their relationship with Jesus Christ.

buglady said...

I agree, Greg Mortenson's book, Three Cups of Tea is so inspiring. It reads like the best fiction book you have ever read, can't put it down, but it is a true story. So inspiring. If you have money to donate to an incredibly worthy cause, his is one to give money to, they will make such good use of it. Merry Christmas to you and thanks for sharing your life with us.
