Merry and blessed Christmas to all who have already celebrated it! I am still quite busy and will be until next week (really it's going to be busy for a bit but anyway....) ... my sister's foster son's sitaution remains in my thoughts.... it is my birthday tomorrow... I am going to be 45! Hard to believe, really. My Mom sent me a gift which I will open tomorrow with a few cards I got. My Husband and I are going to do my birthday probably after January 7 Christmas this year. Anyway, God BLESS and comfort you all. May He protect us and save us.

I am busy with family visiting.
Please pray for my sister and her family; they have been trying to adopt a child they have had for over 2 years and it is not going well. Obviously I can't go into details.... (foster care legalities). Our hearts are heavy and brokenhearted at the very idea of losing this child who we all love so much.
I am still trying to post as I can HERE on my public IG account.
I am so sorry that I don't have more to say at present but know that I and my Husband are well. Just busy with family. Bless you all.
I realize that this is a hard season for so many. May God have mercy on us and save us...and carry us in His love, in His arms...

Heather, a long time friend of mine since I moved to the East Coast of the States, came to NYC yesterday! I am sharing lots on my public Instagram account and you can see my pictures HERE for the lovely tea and cake we had!
If not, here's what I wrote this morning there:
🎄Christmas in🗽🍎 with @thenaturejournaler began when Heather drove up to my place from ✈🥰
🎄 I had the tea table ready! A delicious decaf apricot tea that my friend @katiebythelake gave me YEARS ago☕and a delicious vegan GF Cranberry Orange Cake ➡️ for recipe! (I substituted OJ for milk & used an egg replacer + Bobs Red Mill GF Flour)
🎄 Our laughter broke out in delight as my Husband met Heather for the first time (he jokes a lot when with friends)🎄🥰
🎄 I played my favourite Christmas CD and we enjoyed tea & cake after touring our library 📚📚📚
🎄 Heather gave me beautiful 🎁🎄🎁 that she made! I will show you in a later post but the 🎄 ornament in last picture is one of them! 😍🎄
🎄Soon we were speeding off to a NJ/NYC PATH train to NYC for what I had dubbed our Christmas in NYC Extravaganza 🎄❤🗽🍎❄☃️
🎄 Hoping to share more as the days anticipating Christmas go on! Much tea and beauty to come! 🎄☕☃️❄🗽🍎🎁🎄☕❤ #christmasinnyc
