ADVENT :; CHRISTMAS EVE…

Virginia the Blogger’s Advent Challenge is coming to a close with Christmas Eve (i will be headed to church ;ate tonight after a family gathering — ’twas a very busy Christmas Eve day in the Kitchen for Virginia the Cook after a hilarious quick ‘dash’ to the grocery that turned into an Event with zillions of others!! : )

Since i began this challenge with an image from the cover of one of the 1st Christmas cards i designed.. here’s a peek of the inside (also ‘hand drawn’ & copied & pasted!)

      Henriette!! So much joy & prayers for peace (answered amidst the bubbling pots & pans).. God is good (all the time!) So great hearing from you & i hope that your Christmas week will be blessed with extra doses of the Grace, Peace & Joy of Jesus (& on into the New Year!) i will never forget your visits to TZ, especially our time in Kagera with Nuella & the picture she drew for you — just precious…
