Dec. 7th? A major date in U.S. history. I very much appreciate your excellent writing and mentoring, but your vibrant committed Christian life even more!

Judy said...

Oh my, books are on the top of the list of my favorite things! Flannel sheets, baking goodies, snuggling up on the sofa with my husband of 8 years, church services during the Christmas season, singing carols and listening to CD's, watching Christmas movies on Hallmark and Lifetime, and my new favorite thing is Starbucks!

I hope you have a wonderful birthday chock full of Blessings!

Thank you for sharing some of your favorite things with us!

My absolute favorite things are boys' arms wrapped around my waist, chocolate, scented candles, great movies and popcorn with my honey, quiet times, a good book, and the list could go on.

I loved The Wedding Dress, and just recommended it to a friend yesterday.
Happy birthday early!

LOVE satin hands! My poor-girl version is homemade sugar scrub . . . I mix sugar, olive oil, and some kind of great-smelling shower gel and keep it in a mason jar. It's not quite as good as Ms. Kay's kit, but it's good when the budget is lean! ;)
