Nature's diamond necklace

Sometimes I can get so busy and I don't take a moment to look around and take in some of nature's beauty. We can miss out on seeing some beautiful little reminders of what a wonderful Creator we have!  This morning as I was rushing out to work I almost ran into this little beauty.  I stopped short and just took it all in... it reminded me of a delicate diamond necklace.

Don't forget to take a little time today to look for and see those little unexpected things God sends our way!

Joy to the World!

It's looking more and more like Christmastime around the office!  Every year we look for ideas to decorate our cubicles.  From elaborate to simple we have had all kinds of decorations. My inspiration this year was this gold ornament with the words Joy to the World.

I wanted something simple, classy and meaningful.  So off I went to the various discount stores to search for just the right decorations.

Here is how it turned out!  To finish it off I printed out some of my favorite Christmas hymns and Carols in English and Spanish.

November Blessings...

This past month was filled with lots of little blessings.  It's those little things that God sends us everyday that remind me of His faithfulness and love.

1.  Saturdays with Titus.  Spending time watching airplanes land and take off, waiting for the train to come so we could wave at it and playing at the park were just some of the things we did.

2.  Sweet Margie came to visit and we enjoyed a delicious lunch of Colombian treats
3.  Spending a whole day showing Margie how to roll a pie crust and decorate cookies.

4.  Showing Danielle how to make pomegranate jelly

5.  A wonderful visit for Thanksgiving with the Cosentino's!

 6.  Seeing snowflakes fall for the first time!

7.  Three days of lovely snow flurries that turned the yard into a Christmas postcard!

8.  Catching snowflakes on your tongue...

9.  Safe flight to and from the East coast.

10.  Celebrating 15 years at my office during the Service Awards Luncheon this week!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
