Happy New Year!

Another Year for Thee

Another year is dawning!
Dear Master, let it be,
In working or in waiting
Another year with Thee!

Another year of leaning
Upon Thy loving breast
Of even deeper trusting,
Of quiet, happy rest.

Another year of mercies,
Of faithfulness and grace;
Another year of gladness,
In the shining of Thy face.

Another year of progress,
Another year of praise;
Another year of proving
Thy presence "all the days."

Another year of service,
Of witness to Thy love;
Another year of training
For holier work above.

Another year is dawning!
Dear Master, let it be,
On earth, or else in heaven,
Another year for Thee!

Our 9th Annual Christmas Pig Pickin'

Sorry I have not posted this week.
We've been very busy preparing for this special event at church!
Saturday we went to the church early to decorate...

Then after a few extra erands, we went home to start cooking for it...

My friend spent the night Friday and Saturday night
so she could help prepare for the Pig Pickin'.
We decided to make a cute snowman cake
from out of my Taste of Home Baking Book.
It took us two days to make...

While we worked on it,
mom sat on the floor and braided the challah bread...

Then finally, it was finished...

The Pig Pickin' was a lot of fun!
I brought along my guitar and violin again.
Pastor and I are going to play 'Silent Night'
next Sunday on the violin and guitar.
(He'll be playing my guitar.)
So we practiced for that
and I practiced a violin/piano offeratory duet
for when I play my violin at church this Wednesday
with our pastor's wife.
We'll be playing "The First Noel".

Well as you can see, we've been very busy.
I hope to post again sometime soon.

"Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth;
and break forth into singing, O mountains:
for the LORD hath comforted his people,
and will have mercy upon his afflicted."
Isaiah 49:14
