Friends Decorate my Life


The first people to enter the Nativity Set Display Open House doors last Saturday evening were Donna of "Booknook" fame, her husband, and  two sisters  (one of whom Donna mentors).  In a matter of a few hours one evening, this friend encouraged and supported me, these two teens, and then my husband who they invited to eat with them while I co-hosted the Open House.
 
A few minutes later, another dear friend, Liz, arrived with her husband, daughter, and three friends they had invited. I cannot find the right words to describe the support and encouragement that friends extend to me.

Christmas decorations adorn a house (and I saw many WONDERFUL homes on two holiday housewalks that we fit in this past weekend).  But friends adorn one's life!   I thank God that I am all decked out with friends this Christmas!

  3. I feel blessed to have you as a friend that God connected me with via a blog. I would like to have been at your open house with Donna. What a cute idea to display nativity sets. I will have to share this idea with some of the church ladies at my church for a possible idea for next year.

  8. I like that, decorating my home and my life with friends! What a rich variety I host in my life; everything from "colorful and loud" to "soft and serene." All vibrant in their texture and tone... all making my life the beautiful tapestry it is.

    I think I'm going to make a list of my "decorations" and think about them in colors/styles. Great idea (even if you didn't mean to take me there)...
