For Unto Us A Child Is Born

Through Christ we have received the greatest gift of all! I am so thankful to know the true meaning of Christmas. I hope that each of you and your families have a blessed Christmas filled with joy and laughter.

I'm so thankful to all of you who take time out of your day to visit me and for all of your comments. It really means so much and I'm very grateful to have made so many friends. I hope to post something of interest, whether it's a craft or who knows what, very soon. I'm getting there slowly. In the meantime I posted some verses from Luke in celebration of this wondrous gift that mankind has received.

I'm picturing all of you enjoying Christmas to the fullest with all your family and friends. If you are alone today but don't want to feel alone I'll be checking in and you're welcome to share your feelings with me. May God bless you all.

With Love ....Tracy

Luke 1:14

"And you will have joy and gladness, and many will rejoice at his birth.

Luke 2:11

for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

Luke 2:14

"Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased."

Luke 2:10

And the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which shall be for all the people;

  10. Dearest Tracy, Your words on my post did not at all reflect the person I know you are. I too become "invisible" at times to my sweet husband whose tone of voice can bring me to tears. I know that he loves me more than life itself, but he becomes stuck in habit at channeling his own unhappiness or frustrations towards the person he loves the most. I hear his father's voice towards a second wife he did not love come from my husband. I see you, and I know that you are kind and generous and beautiful. Put a tree up for us next year! E

  11. Hi Tracy~
    Thank you for visiting and leaving comments-we all know that it makes our heart soar when we read that someone has been reading. You asked about directions for the origami tree ornaments I made for a swap. I really just "googled" origami trees and the directions were right there. the trees are not hard to make-the tricky part is butting 2 trees together...you have to make sure everything lines up properly. I do love making them! Have a Healthy, Happy New Year!

  12. Dear Tracy:
    Thank you so much for your kind anniversary wishes. Happy New Year to you and your loved ones. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better in the new year.

  13. You are just the loveliest person, Tracy. :-)
    I just wanted to tell you that.


  14. Happy New Year to you Tracy! Good luck with your healthy plan for 2010. We are all in the same boat it gets harder every year of age doesnt' it. I guess we have to exercise for our whole lives we have NO choice if we want to stay on top of things. Take care, hugs!

  15. Hi sweet Tracy, I just wanted to stop by to thank you...for each and every encouraging word you offer...you are truly a blessing!!!! I wish you a wonderful and very happy new year dear friend ~ do what you need to do....be who you need to be...achieve what you want to achieve!!! YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU PUT YOUR MIND TO! hugs and love, Dawn
