’tis the season

This year, instead of getting our Christmas tree on the coldest day of December, we chose it on the warmest day. 🙂 Snow or not, and if one uses oxen or a car to cart the tree home to spruce it up with holiday traditions, getting a Christmas tree is always fun! Someday I’ll do […]

Uplift

These videos I’m sharing because they touched and uplifted my spirit – I hope they minister to yours!
