IT'S BEGINING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS - Father Christmas

My four Father Christmas that adore the top of our entertainment center each Christmas season

This is the first Father Christmas I ever got. It was a gift to me, from my forever friend, Joan, many years ago.

I purchased this smaller Father Christmas for myself to add to the one above.
Purchased another small Father Christmas to add to the collection.

This beautiful Father Christmas was a present from my daughter, Jacque, the first Christmas she was with us after losing everything in Katrina Hurricane in 2005.


Thank you for letting me share one of our many Christmas treasurers that make our house a home and mean so much to us.

ALSO, the chrystal Angel sitting in the middle of this display resides on this entertainment center year-round. It was a gift to me, several years ago, from my son Marc. She sits on a circular mirror base that turns and lights up. I absolutely love her and she is my latest addition to my Angel collection.

Susan,

Thank you so much for stopping by today and for your prayer and wonderful words of encouragement. It is such a blessing to have such sweet christian friends.

I continue to pray for your family and your daughter most especially.

Our God is truly a great God. He is a God of wonders and a wonderful God. I thank Him for His strength. Psalm 71:6 declares "I will go in the strength of the Lord"

Praise Jesus!

Blessings,
Debra
