A Peek. A Reflection. Some Nostalgia

The light casts shadows on the Christmas trees sharing the shelf
with other quaint items at one end of our Christmas Cabin.
Inside, it's Christmas Year 'Round!
Sitting in our backyard, it has a small sleeping loft and bunkbeds 
to house family and friends who visit us at our two-bedroom home.  
For a peek at the inside, click here to go to my other blog.

And here....a bit of Christmas reflection (and nostalgia, for me)...

 The immense step from the Babe at Bethlehem to the living, reigning triumphant Lord Jesus, returning to earth for His own people - that is the glorious truth proclaimed throughout Scripture. As the bells ring out the joys of Christmas, may we also be alert for the final trumpet that will announce His return, when we shall always be with Him.  (*Alan Redpath)

*Dr. Redpath was the pastor of Moody Church (Chicago) which  my family attended when my father was a student at Moody Bible Institute in the early 1950s...Late he spoke at special events at Moody Bible Institute when I attended in the late 60s.He was a gifted preacher (had a British or Scottish accent) and is the author of several books.


  1. Great photo! Lovely decorations! Beautiful quote!
    Love and Prayers,

  2. Yes. We shouldn't remember Him as a babe without remembering Him in death, resurrection, victory, and promise.

  3. Oh Rebecca you made me smile... no the cat didn't get my tongue... I hit the Post button by mistake... but the Post is complete now *winks* so if you go back, my usual Story will unfold! *LOL*

  4. Beautiful post. Happiest of Christmases to you dear one!

  5. We are celebrating HIS birth, our Lord Jesus Christ. I just came from spending almost a week with my daughter helping her move to her new house and also with my little grands and I was so happy to see they were really involved in the birth of our Saviour. Thank you for sharing dear Rebecca. Merry Christmas and many blessings.

  6. Hi Rebecca:

    I remember Alan Redpath being a good friend of my dad's. Also, our son went to Moody some years ago. Isn't it a small world sometimes??

    One more thing, that song by Evie played so often that we finally wore the tape out when our kids were growing up! Wasn't she precious??

    Merry Christmas to you and your family!


  7. I peeked into your Christmas cabin, what a cute place. I loved the ice skating picture. Is it a paint by number, it sorta looks like that. I'd love to do one like that!

  8. Amen Mr. Redpath, and me thinks it might not be too long............at least I hope not!!
    Every day it just seems our world get a bit more
    but thanks be to the Lord Jesus for his Peace, that only He can give! where in the world would we be without Jesus! No place I would want to go,
    that is for sure...............

    Merry Christmas sweet friend, and hope you have
    the Merriest of Christmas's ever!
    Blessings to you and yours,
