This little light shines

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

John 1:5

Friends, it has been a hard week. One in which we are reminded to be grateful for the precious people in our lives, and the simple joys of this crazy little life of ours.

I had some posts planned, but in the wake of such tragedy, they just seem so insignificant. So, I write instead the best message I can:

To all those affected by the events in CT last week, we love and pray for you. It seems impossible to ‘celebrate’ Christmas, but “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” Jesus’ birthday is coming, and I know he has some new angels with him who are eager to celebrate.

Hold your loved ones here on Earth tight, and tell them how adored they are. And for your loved ones who are bright shiny stars in the Heavens, hold them close in your heart and tell them how adored they are. Because with a little Faith and Love, I know they will hear you!

I wish you all peace this holiday season. See you in 2013


Break Over

Hello to all my friends! My sadly neglected blog has been calling my name lately….Kelliebelle? Remember me? Why yes, my friend, I certainly do. We’ve lost touch during all my crazy business, but like friends who don’t chat for a while and then spend hours on the phone like no time has passed…I’m sure we can catch up!!

It is absoutely, 100%, my most favorite time of the year, Christmas! Something about Christmas makes me feel so thankful for all the wonderful blessings in my life, and makes me look forward to another glorious year! I won’t lie, 2012 has been a rough one. Lots of sickness and two major surgeries in my little family has thrown us for quite the loop. Hence the sudden end to my blogging over the summer. But still, everything is just right because now it’s Christmas time!!

I have BIG ambitions for 2013. I’m prepping now. I’m planning, scheming, researching, and I hope that I will be able to document this wonderful little life I live and share it with my friends.

For now, enjoy the season! I sure am. Here’s my first ever batch of Peppermint Bark:

And I just finished my first batch of gingerbread cookie dough! YUM, tis the season!
