Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve is even more special to me than Christmas day. It is when I reflect on all that makes  our cozy life so precious. My loving  hubby always lights all of the Christmas candles and the music reflects the gift of Christ, we make a call to the grands and watch them open one gift each...
such sweet treasures they are.
Later in the evening we take a short trip over to my best friends home full of laughter, joy and good food. When we get back home the gifts go under the tree and we settle in to reflect on the peace of the night. I end the evening with a reading from scripture and this year I added a new favorite Christmas story "The Journey " by Donna Van Liere. It is a narrative of what 
Christ's birth night may have actually been like. 
I am  Humbled by the facts surrounding the King of Kings birth and 
His amazing entrance in to my humanity. I say my humanity because it is messy, crazy far from perfect yet God came down in to it to give me a reason to continue on when the days are hard.
I need to hold Christmas in my heart all year and remember the
warm, grace filled joy of my Saviors love. Merry Christmas to all!

Fall

It has been a rough season on our little island and I am trying to get my groove back. We have weathered through Hurricane Matthew s fury.  105 mph winds came our way and caused life to be interrupted. Here are a few photos of my own back yard after they removed the huge fallen trees. Wow. We were so blessed that none of these tall giants fell on our house. The island is in recovery mode but the amount of trees downed by a category 2 is unbelievable. It is thought that the heavy rains during the weeks before the storm softened the ground adding to the amount of wind felled the big pines and oaks. They came down roots and all.

Long time gone

Hello its me.  Yes. July wow. I have been battling back pain since Jan and finally starting to get relief. I have stared for months at my creative stash unable to sit for long and do much  unmotivated and unmoved. But. This weekend I plan on starting again. Finally diagnosed with SI joint inflammation. Done with PT on a med for osteoarthritis. And praying  this too shall pass. Realizing what joy and healing art has been for me and to just show up is half the battle. Sometimes showing up mentally and waiting physically on the rebound to happen. It will.
