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 home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—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.

Memory-Making Moments

Christmas Eve

Pinky, unhappy with her Christmas present     ~     Bekah and Kati, happy with their gift from Ryan

It was a four generation Christmas!

With the grandmothers

Three daughters, one son-in-law, five grandchildren!

On Christmas evening, we "visited" Ryan, Sarah, Eve, Nora, and Peter
via Skype.

Yes, it was a day of memory-making moments!


  1. Wonderful!

    We had 4 generations here too! My parents, us, our children and our granddaughter!

    Such a blessing to have had this time together!


  2. Everywhere I've seen the scenes repeated of Christmas with family and friends and it just makes me smile...a wee bit of heaven on earth. The little one in red is so adorable! She gives sweet glances, too.

    I served a strawberry trifle in lieu of being able to bake and it did NOT look as beautiful as the checkerboard one I see sitting on your table. Someone took a lot of time and love with that one.

  3. What wonderful pictures to treasure and remember your Christmas gatherings! (We're looking forward to ours Friday & Saturday.)

  4. What gorgeous pictures of your Christmas gatherings, Cheryl. It appears that Ron and Kati have almost-matching pj's (smile). Your collages are beautiful. I love the joy in each one. And I love that even Pinky received gifts! I hope your week has been going well.

  5. It looks like you had a wonderful Christmas! On a side note- I LOVE Hercule Poirot. =D I can't get enough of those movies with David Suchet as Poirot. SO good!
