Time For The Tree

Thanksgiving, a day of great food and being around family and/or friends, has passed. That was yesterday, though I am thankful every day. Now it is time to get my living room in order so that I can figure out where I am going to put our new tree.

That's right, we got a new tree. We have been married for a little over 5 years now and the tree that we had been using is one that he had bought when he divorced. A cute, small tree that we decorated but the lights went out and it was time to get a new one.  It is really nice to have a tree that is "ours". I know that might sound trivial and maybe it's a "female" thing but we had a new beginning and now we are making new memories as a blended family. So, this tree will be with us for the rest of our Christmases together.

I am feeling the Christmas spirit more this year than I have in a long time. Does it take long for this to happen in a blended family? I use to always get into the spirit of Christmas with my decorating and smells and lights. This year will be festive for us and I am so excited about it.

But now...it's time to go shop those Black Friday sales. Our new tree will be up soon and pics will follow.

Many Blessings ~ Thea

When You Know...You Know

...When we met, we knew God brought us together. We never thought we would meet our future spouse on a dating site. Click on the picture to read our success story published back in May 2012.

Just a little bit about my husband and I.

Happy Sabbath Day!

Today is the Sabbath day and in our household, we try with all our hearts to keep it holy, as the Lord commanded.

I want to focus today on the plan of Happiness that our Heavenly Father wants for you and I. For so long, I searched for it in so many areas of my life.

Sometimes it is hard to find happiness in ALL areas of your life but focusing on what makes you happy and trying to see positive in the things that aren't so good, will change your life.

It has changed mine. There are so many things I can be negative about. Negativity comes easy for us all. Positivity can sometimes be work...that means humbling ourselves and thinking of others, seeing that it could be so much worse and then be thankful it isn't.
