Goodbye, 2011!

Is it already December 31, 2011?  Wow!

I hope you had a wonderfully, extraordinarily, blessed Christmas!  We did, although it goes by way too fast! :)
 
After Christmas is over, I am ready to get the house back in order and get everything back to "normal."  (Though, I still have to have some Christmas music!)  Homeschool starts back on January 2nd...(Yippee!!!)...and then, in May, my sweet cousin, Katy, and I will be graduating from homeschool high school. (Another big "Wow!") :) 
Speaking of cousins, here are some pictures of us Brown-Church cousins at Christmas...





(Christmas at MaMaw and PaPaw Brown's)


For a craft update, I am working on a red-felt-rosette wreath and have been crocheting several pom-pom scarves.  (No sewing, this go around!)
 

Finished scarf!



 
It's one long, skinny scarf, folded in half several times to give it texture and fullness.
(Sorry the pictures aren't the greatest...it was the best I could do for now.)


Lately, I have been reminded of the song "Great is Thy Faithfulness."  Looking back over 2011, I find that it is so true.
 
"Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father,
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not
As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.

Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!
  Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—
    Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above,
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!"
                

May 2012 be a year we do more for our Savior, than ever before!

Many blessings in the upcoming year!!!
