1322. That which God said to the rose, and caused it to laugh in full-blown beauty, He said to my heart, and made it a hundred times more beautiful. ~Rumi

I pray that all of you had a wonderful Christmastide, and that you are looking forward to 2017. We’ve been gone from home since last Thursday as we went to visit my daughter and her family. We had a wonderful time, and so I return home thankful and blessed. I did my best to keep up with your posts via my cell phone and to reply to comments. Since I don’t receive emails on my cell phone, I had to depend on the WP reader, comment page, or notifications page via my phone. So I apologize if I missed anything due to their lack of reliability. I’m back home now and am looking forward to another year of blogging, both mine and yours. Love, Natalie

Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him. ~Psalm 34:8  ✝
