  •   momtique I was thinking how "it doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful" relates to how the Lord sees us. How He saw Mary. She wasn't perfect but was favored and chosen by God to play a significant role in salvation. Just thoughts. :) Merry Christmas! 20h

thenester A gift to yourself: cross some things off your to do list today, not because you did them, but because you are choosing not to. 3d
  •   margaritasuk Just decided to stop peeling pecans and fill bags to give to neighbors, instead. Double win! 3d
  •   bluemink1800 Thanks M! 3d
  •   mybelles101 I love this. And I used it while cleaning out our upstairs room, to give myself permission to get rid of some half-finished projects and materials for other, never-even-started/ what-did-I-buy-this-for-again projects. 2d
  •   deniseross71 Oh I so love this. How freeing. I crossed off my baking list. I have no time and no energy so we will live Happily without 2d
  •   sueneu12 Hurting from so much standing, I need to take your same attitude..... 2d
  •   kelliott.idaho @cashaw21 ha ha ha ha!! 2d
  •   charlee1952 Thanks for reminding us this is ok to do . 2d
  •   holliensingleton I have gotten great at that this year...Christmas cards-nope, Christmas baking and candy making-nope, putting up 2 extra trees-nope, outside lights-nope, extra decorations all around- nope! Ha...what have I done! Made it through happy and less stressed as ever, and with more money leftover in the budget. It's not about me and my lists...it's about Him and His coming for me! Merry Christmas @thenester! 2h

thenester This is the fourth year I've made "Grannie's Fudge" from @lifeingrace . It's no fail and the best part is eating it warm from the empty pot. I'm leaving the web address to it in the first comment below so you can cut & paste. Edie is my hero. 4d
  •   lifeingrace I was eating wam fudge last night too!!! I love you forever and ever:))) 3d
  •   lifeingrace AT GRANNIES!!! 3d
  •   4harps Quick ?: When it boils for 6 minutes do you stir it or not? No one else has asked this, so I hate to ask...apparently every one else knows the answer! :) 3d
  •   thenester @4harps yes, I stir it the entire time it boils. #relaxing 3d
  •   4harps Great! Thank you!! 3d
  •   stitchfix Yum! Best part of the holidays, Myquillyn! :) 2d
  •   susan_duplantis I did it, too! A big salute to Grannie...Edie...and you, Myquillyn. ;) 2d
  •   handbagsandpigtails Yep. Grannies fudge was made for the first time here this year and has been declared a "hit." The girls made it with me:) 7h
