On The Second Day of Christmas... My true Love Gave to me a birdhouse for the turtle doves that are freezing in this record Texas freeze. Yes, we had snow in Texas. Not for long and it didn't last but it was beautiful.
I know the doves will be nice and cozy in this one yr. round. Bet they can't wait for spring,LOL. So Romantic and glitzy with German Glass glitter covering the roof and Swarovski rhinestones added for some pinkalicious sparkle.

On the 1st day of Christmas my true love gave to me...A Partridge in a Pear Tree. The partridge in a pear tree is Jesus the Christ, the Son of God, whose birthday we celebrate on December 25, the first day of Christmas. In the song, Christ is symbolically presented as a mother partridge that feigns injury to decoy predators from her helpless nestlings, recalling the expression of Christ's sadness over the fate of Jerusalem: "Jerusalem! Jerusalem! How often would I have sheltered you under my wings, as a hen does her chicks, but you would not have it so . . . ." (Luke 13:34)
We hope you will join us at Ribbons Roses and More to celebrate the 12 days of Christmas. There you will find so many beautiful items to decorate your Shabby Chic and Victorian Home.

I believe- that true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love
I believe- that it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.
I believe- that you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.
I believe- that you can keep going long after you can't.
I believe- that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.
I believe- that either you control your attitude or it controls you.
I believe- that regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades and there had better be something else to take its place

I believe- that money is a lousy way of keeping score.
I believe- that my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.
I believe- that sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down, will be the ones to help you get back up.
I believe- that sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.
I believe- that just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.
I believe- that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

I believe- that no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.
I believe- that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.
I believe- that just because two people argue, it doesn't mean they don't love each other And just because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do.
I believe- that you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.
I believe- that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally. different.
I believe- that your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don't even know you.
I believe- that even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you you will find the strength to help.
I believe- that credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.
I believe- that the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.

As most of you know I am computer challenged. Last Thurs.my site went down and I've had to change hosting services. Thinking everything was backed up.... guess what "not". So here I go again.... I'm starting from scratch. God has a purpose,I know not what that may be. Lot's of work ahead but I'm struggling through it with a little help from my friend and hopefully everything will be back to normal in a few days. Say a prayer. I haven't a clue about half of what I am doing. What's new,LOL.
You can find Ribbons Roses and More here. Just click the link. I will be adding new things while I'm at it. Lot's of Halloween and Fall goodies coming soon.
Our teachers started back to school in our district today. Please a prayer for them and the coming school yr.
Dear Father in heaven,
We thank you for a chance to begin the new school year and a new beginning. We ask that you bless our teachers. We pray that you will guide them in all ways,and that they will seek your will in everything that they do.We ask this in Jesus name, Amen
Don't faint but after being away for so long I've done two post in one day. After asking for help on several places I am proud to announce that with Debie's ( Shabby Cottage Shops) help I was finally able to make a fan page on Face Book. Be sure to click on the link in the side bar and join me.

Remember the movie Parenthood with Steve Martin ? The grandmother said " life is like a roller coaster ... it has it's ups and downs. It goes round and round, up and down " or something to that effect. That's how it's been at my house for the last few weeks. Most of you know that I have taken care of my bedridden FIL for the last 4 + yrs. Sadly for us on July 18,2009 he left this earth to be with God and Grandmother. Happily for him he is no longer in pain or suffering. He is greatly missed by all. The house isn't the same. Thank you to all that have kept us in your prayers.
