A Month of Challenges – Day 10 (December 10)

This December my weeks appear to have themes.  Last week it was all about decorating.  This week’s theme:  gifts (their purchase and wrapping).  I had a blast last week, but I think this week could top it.  I love buying gifts, wrapping gifts and giving gifts.  To me, it’s the best feeling in the whole world.

  • iphoneMy December Daily journal entry will be about purchasing my new Iphone.  I guess you could say this is a gift I gave myself. :-).
  • stripesThis picture is my entry for the iHeartFaces Photo Challenge.  Today’s topic was “stripes”.  This is some scrapbook paper I will be using in a project.
  • For “Journal Your Christmas”, today’s journal prompt is about gift giving.  I love to give gifts, but more than that I love to think about the people I’m giving gifts to.  I learned early on that you give because you love the person, not because of your expectations of how they will respond to the gift.  I will be writing about gifts I’ve given and one’s I’ve received that have left a lasting impression.
  • babette25 Christmas movies.  Mike and I watched “Babette’s Feast”.  Another non-traditional Christmas, non-Christmasy movie, but one of my favorites. For me, it’s a wonderful reminder of the true spirit of the season. Out of great love for a group of people who are oblivious to her true talent, Babette sacrifices all she has to prepare for them a celebration dinner served only at the finest French restaurants. That’s what God does for us.  Kleenex recommended.

Until tomorrow,

Grace
