As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this nearly six-acre tract of land, this farmhouse, this domain—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Sunday Snapshots: 'Twas the Sunday Before Christmas


It was a day for wearing red, eating our traditional Sunday-before-Christmas sandwiches, and playing with the Nativity set. It was a day for reindeer cupcakes (made by Owen) and eggnog pie (made by Kristin) and coffee (of course). It was a day for the children to act out the Christmas story. It was a day for planning the upcoming days and activities and for playing games together. It was a day for Christmas Grandy

It was a day for anticipation, yes, but mostly for enjoying the moment. 


















Edited to add a little something extra...
Several of you inquired about the eggnog pie. My daughter Kristin made it so I asked her for the recipe and here is the link for Easy Eggnog Pie. You're welcome. :)
