A Christmas Card for You





Merry Christmas, friends!  I cherish every one of you.  Your friendship means so much to me and I know I am a blessed woman to be connected with so many wonderful men and women who inspire me throughout the year.  I look forward to the coming year with you   I wish for you that God will bless you, your family, your relationships, your work, and your gift of writing and lead you powerfully in the New Year.  

This Scripture turned up in my reading this morning and I claim it for us in 2017.  As we draw close to Jesus today and in the coming year, may we see Him in one another!


He who believes in me, as the scripture has said,
‘Out of his heart shall flow rivers of living water.’ 

John 7:38

  18. Mary, I have so enjoyed reading back thru your posts. In the 8 years that I have been blogging, I have met so many wonderful Christian women. The Lord has blessed me with loving/caring friends to share both the happy and the sad times with. Thank you so much for visiting Lorraine's blog. She is one of the first bloggers I became acquainted with. She is a loving Christian wife, mother and grandmother and a dear friend. I have urged her for years to publish a cookbook. She is a gifted photographer in addition to a great cook. I know your visit greatly encouraged her tonight. Have a pleasant night. Mildred
