This is a potluck Thursday:

Great Hint:  Before all those gifts come into the house, take the time to go through your house of anything that has served it’s time 🙂  If you don’t have time before the holidays, have a one item in-one item out philosophy.  This works great for kids as well.  We say that for every item they bring in and item of equal size or value needs to be donated.

Try This: Switch out the word “lucky” and replace it with blessed. 

 Give God the glory instead of fate.

Help For Your Holidays: Don’t be a lone ranger!  Ask for help and take any that’s offered.  If someone offers to bring a dish to your gathering, accept it and don’t make another the way your family is use to it.  Try the new dish and be more relaxed. 

Quote of the Day: If at first you don’t succeed, you’ll get a lot of advise.

Verse of the Day:  “We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in Him.  God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.”  1 John 4:16 

 Do you believe and know how much God loves you?

Gift Idea: Take a brand new spoon and dip into melted white, milk or dark chocolate.  Dip into crushed peppermint candy.  Wrap them in cellophane and tie with a nice ribbon.  Make a tag ” Hope you have a warm holiday.”  or “Here’s something to really stir things up.”  The recipient can use in their coffee for a nice holiday treat.  You can do some with out the candy and drizzle the other chocolate over the top -like white chocolate drizzled over the dark/milk chocolate.

Warm Fuzzy: Find a good pair of slippers and enjoy every minute of their life!

Have a BLESSED day 🙂
