"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11

TREE TAG / CQC #63...


Time got away from me yesterday & I never was able to post this.... We have some FABULOUS colors for you this week at the colourQ.... some of my AL TIME FAVES!!! I made a little tag...




I folded the green paper into an accordian and then cut out the trees like I used to cut out dolls when I was a kid... 2 fit on this tag & I had enough to do a few more tags, too!

I can't believe Christmas is next week! AGHHHH! My mother confessed this morning she hasn't bought a single gift, which for my mother to say is quite alarming! The older I get the less those things mean... I think one of the best presents I ever got was from my grandmother, Meme, when I was 17. It was a small green bowl, Depression glass, that belonged to my great~grandmother Maisie (my daughter's namesake). When she died, Meme had it displayed on an old hutch and every time I went to visit, I would pick that bowl up and just hold it. A few months later I was shocked when I unwrapped it! In about 17 years I'll wrap it up again & give it to Maisie Grace... I hope she cherishes it as much as I do.

Peace and love to all of you, not only in this season of Light, but always...
