Luke 2:10-14
But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; 
he is Christ the Lord. 
This will be a sign to you: 
You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, 
praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on 
earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."

I hope you all have a wonderful day with family and friends remembering that without the manger we wouldn't have the saving grace of the cross! 


  1. Merry Christmas to you and yours.
    God bless your family today and always! Love, Liesa

  2. Merry Christmas "Sunshine " girl!

  13. Hello Dear Friend,
    I have been away from blogland for a few weeks, and just so enjoyed catching up with you.
    You have been on my mind and heart lately, and I am praying for you and your family.

    I so enjoyed reading of how Christmas was so special for you when you were growing up. It was so heart warming, it brought back wonderful memories of when my Father was living and how special he always made it for us.
    Lois, you were a beautiful young lady then as well as now.

    And what a wonderful man you married, he reminds me of my dh, always loving and caring. Now, that I think of it, yours and his relationship reminds me of ours,.Who better to trust the Colonel with than the one who created him, God loves him more than anyone.

    As far as having a teenager driving ,that my dear friend I don't envy! I know how I was and we had two teen boys back to back. so get ready the gray hairs will be coming, and you will find that your knees will become more worn. LOL

    Wishing you and your family the best New year.

  14. Hi Sunshine,
    For some reason I can't get your New Years Eve blog to come up, so was wondering if you should check it because maybe somehow it got deleted or something. I tried about 10 times but it said this page can't be found, and it takes me to your Christmas post.
    So how are you?? and what is happening with the Phil. I know he was suppose to report to Fort Benning on Dec. 26th, but has he
    actually been deployed already???
    I have been praying for you cause I know this is a tough time.
    So let me know what is happening over there girlie.
    Blessings, love and peace,

  15. Hi there! I am treating myself on New Year's Eve with some treasured time to blog hop. I saw your comment somewhere (maybe Lysa's?) and came running. Walking on Sunshine... you speak to me. Blessings to you.

  16. Just wanted to pop in and wish you a Happy New Year!


    P.S. in answer to your question.... Christmas was just as rushed as ever. It flew by! UGH! I feel jipped! It's my own fault though.

  17. I wanted to stop by to wish you a very happy new year! May God bless you each and every day and watch over all of your family members, near and far. Sending hugs to you on this special day.

  18. Happy New Year, friend! Hope this year will be a great one for all of you - and that God will meet your every need. Praying for you..and for the Colonel.

  19. Hope you had a wonderfullllll Christmas!

    Love, Madison

  20. Good Morning, Lois!

    Thinking of you this chilly day and just wanted to stop by and say Hi!

    Praying for you, your husband and your children as this new year brings hard adjustments.

    Kindly, ldh

  21. Good Morning~
    I haven't heard from you in awhile. I just want you to know I am praying for you. I know you must be going through a valley with your husband gone and starting a New Year without your Father. You have been in my thoughts and prayers!
    Sending you blessings from Missouri~
