"...Ma asked if they were sure the stockings were empty. Then they put their hands down inside them, to make sure. And in the very toe of each stocking was a shining bright, new penny! They had never even thought of such a thing as having a penny. Think of having a whole penny for your very own. Think of having a cup and a cake and a stick of candy and a penny." ~Laura Ingalls Wilder
And Laura called that a happy Christmas.
May we each be thankful for the multitude of blessings we enjoy.
Especially the simple ones...just like Laura did.
However many blessings we expect from God, His infinite liberality will always exceed all our wishes and our thoughts. ~John Calvin
Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. ~I Thessalonians 5:16-18
