The Magic of Christmas

Something about the Christmas season that opens our hearts to giving. My desire this year is to keep the Christmas Magic throughout the year......

Footprints

I love these beach pictures of my grandson, in fact I have
them arranged in my house and see them everyday....it always
reminds me of the poem "Footprints"
One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints.
Other times there were one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life
When I was suffering from anguish, sorrow, or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord, "You promised me, Lord,
That if I followed you, you would walk with me always.
But I noticed that during the most trying periods of my life
There have only been one set of prints in the sand.
Why, When I have needed you most, you have not been there for me?"
The Lord replied,
"The times when you have seen only one set of footprints
Is when I carried you."

Dear Santa

I love being around the little one during the Christmas season, they have such a gift of looking at the season and expecting magic to happen! All my grandchildren have written their letters to Santa and are awaiting with much excitement for him to deliver all the goodies they were wanting......

For the layout below I used Susans kit Homespun Christmas, except for the stitches which are from another source.

Here's a freebie cluster for you created with Susan's kit.

Visions of Sugar-Plums

I just discovered Susan's kits and couldn't wait to created something with them. They are so jam packed with goodies it's hard to decide which ones to use first.

For the layout below I used Susan's kit "Plum Pudding", it made me think of the poem "Twas the Night before Christmas" and all I could think of was the part of the poem that said "visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads...".

So hopefully I have illustrated for you the vision I had of sugar-plums dancing in my head.
