The Holidays

I love this time of's my absolute favorite!!!! We finally experience the fall colors on our's cold outside...the lights on people's houses...the smell of fresh Christmas trees....Christmas trees period....Christmas candles illuminating...Chrismas music and movies all around...time off from everything...good food....presents...time with loved ones, etc. And best of all....our SAVIOR breaking the silence after so many years and coming to save us as a humble babe! And He came b/c He is GOOD and He is LOVE so His plan and will are strictly FOR US...Hallelujah! The only thing that I hate about this time of year is that I conveniently put on 10lbs and hate it! God help us all! :) Merry Christmas and Happy New Year bloggers!!!! Joy, Peace, Love, and Hope to all! He loves you so! He came for you!
Something to do with your tree this year....After you take it down, cut all the branches off and just take the trunk. Then cut it into a cross shape, tie the 2 pieces together and then keep it up as a cross until Easter to remind you that He came at Christmas so He could die for YOU on Easter! Amen!

I guess I'm out of the loop on that one.

Hi again! Yes, I am a siesta! I am a faithful reader of Beth's blog. But I have one question...where did the name siesta come from? I have been reading since this summer, so I am assuming that name came up before then. Please enlighten me if you can!
