Happy New Year!!


Hello, Dear Ones 
and
Happy New Year!
Did you think I had fallen off the face of the earth?
Well, guess what?
I'm on top of the world with my little family 
and especially with my little Carter here.

I just wanted to share one little story with you:
We went to church Sunday and Carter said she would go into the nursery.
When we got there she realized it wasn't her nursery nor her teacher
so she decided she wouldn't go in.
Well, the service is pretty casual and laid back and it would be fine for Carter to stay with us.
She loved the music and swayed back and forth to the beat.
She sat in my lap during the sermon like an angel.
During the closing prayer she hopped down and crawled up into her mother's lap.
The minister said how we were celebrating Jesus' birth...
then Carter said in her sweet little baby girl voice,
"I broke baby Jesus!"
Again..."I broke baby Jesus!"
I had to hold my mouth shut to keep from laughing outloud! :)

We got home and sure enough we looked at the Nativity on the coffee table
and the little baby Jesus' hand was broken off!

I just laughed and laughed knowing this little story would go down in our history -
Carter confessing her sins during the closing prayer.

I'll be enjoying this special time with my little grand daughter a little longer and then I'll be back.
Please know how much you all mean to me!
I'm sorry I've not commented back to you (so unlike me)
but I have read everything you've written and will be returning your comments in about a week when my little Carter goes home.
I have to soak up all the time I can with her.

My love to you all and pray God's blessings on you in this new year!

Why has blogger decided to underline some of my words?
Is this happening to you?
Oh, well! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~


 You Are My King


I'm forgiven because you were forsaken
I'm accepted, You were condemned
I'm alive and well
Your spirit is within me
Because you died and rose again

I'm forgiven because you were forsaken
I'm accepted, you were condemned
I'm alive and well
Your spirit is within me
Because you died and rose again

Amazing love, how can it be?
That you, my king. would die for me
Amazing love, I know it's true
Its my joy to honor you
Amazing love how can it be?
That my king would die for me
Amazing love I know it's true
Its my joy to honor you
In all I do
I honor you

I'm forgiven because you were forsaken

Your spirit is within me
Because you died and rose again

Amazing love how can it be
That you, my king would die for me
Amazing love, I know its true
It's my joy to honor you
Amazing love how can it be?
That you, my king, would die for me
Amazing love, I know its true
Its my joy to honor you
In all I do I honor you

You are my king
You are my king
Jesus, You are my king
Jesus, You are my king

Amazing love, how can it be?
That you, my king, would die for me
Amazing love, I know it's true
Its my joy to honor you
Amazing love, how can it be?
That you, my king would die for me
Amazing love I know it's true
Its my joy to honor you
In all I do I honor you
In all I do honor you
