Nothing can say Southern hospitality more than this mouthwatering, decadent Sweet Potato Pecan Pie. Flavorful and delicious to the very last bite. Combining all the favorite ingredients, Southerners use to make Sweet Potato pie and […]
“When the temperatures begin to dip, the leaves change colors and pumpkin spice abounds, you know Hallmark Channel’s seasonal programming to celebrate the fall, Halloween and Christmas can’t be far behind. We love the Hallmark Channel’s family-friendly programming that centers around love, community, seasonal gatherings, holiday traditions and everything cozy!
The south has always celebrated family and traditions, and to that end, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite Hallmark movies airing in the 2019 holiday season with a southern connection. Whether the lead actor has roots in the south or the movie is set in a southern city, we’re sharing the ten Hallmark Channel movies we’re watching this season to get us in the mood for pumpkin patches, trick or treating… and of course, Christmas.”
From Sarah : This post was written in October so Halloween is still being celebrated.
Thanksgiving is a wonderful time when family and friends gather to enjoy a meal and each other’s company, however, someone is usually doing kitchen duty and perhaps missing part of the fun. Here are a few ideas to help everybody spend more time with family and friends and less time with the kitchen.
Good Morning Girls!!! It’s Day 4 of Making Your Home a Haven! Light your candle and keep your gratitude list going. What is one thing you are thankful for today?
Today we are reading 2 Corinthians 9:6-15.
From Sarah: I Am Thankful For: Not arguing as much with Danny lately. This is huge. Before he was in the hospital in September and before he stopped drinking we were fighting all the time. Huge Arguments. I never knew what would set Danny off. No matter what I did or didn’t do, we’d end up arguing. Know matter what I said or didn’t say, we would argue about it. Much of the time , I wasn’t even sure what we were arguing about. He’s yell at me. I’d either cry. Usually walking away. Praying it would stop. I’d hear him continue his rants from where ever I was. I would get into the car and drive through the park. Drive through Camp Mack and the surrounding areas. When I came back, he would act as if everything was ok. No “I’m Sorry’s. Nothing. It’s often way too quiet here. He stays in his computer room and I stay in the kitchen , where the laptop is right now. So the only time we talk is when he comes in for a drink. Even then,we seldom talk. I keep trying. He would rather do anything else. Always watching a documentary. Or texting. What happened to both of us watching movies together? But, at least we aren’t fighting and he’s not yelling. He’s not drinking either. I am thankful for all of it.
What are you thankful for today? Love And Hugs, Sarah
If your family holidays are messy, keep in mind the first Christmas was messy, too.
Let’s not misunderstand the message here. Do not glorify the disasters. Just the opposite, actually. Instead, stand in awe of a God who is able to work in the middle of the worst of life’s messes, and more than than, create in this moment a sacred, holy space.
Even in this.
I challenge you this holiday season to find where God is at work. Find the holy. He is here, working.
Several times in Deuteronomy the Lord speaks these words to the Israelites. He knew their hearts could easily be distracted from all He had done for them— things like, rescuing them from their bondage in Egypt, splitting the Red Sea, providing them manna and quail in the wilderness, sand guiding them to the Promised Land.
Can you imagine forgetting to remember those things?
