The Christmas tea is Tuesday. The paper bunting is made, Kyleigh is crocheting 23 wreath ornaments, extra people have been invited, and I am considering chocolate macarons dipped in crushed peppermint. A good experiment? I think so. We hope the tea will be fun and a blessing to all the girlies that come.

Let all mortal flesh keep silence
And in fear and trembling stand
Ponder nothing earthly minded
For with blessing in His hand
Christ our God to earth descendeth
Our full homage to demand

Hope your tea goes well, Cate! I'm sure it will be lovely:) My mom and I recently hosted on at our house-fun times!

I love "Let all Mortal Flesh Keep Silence." It's probably one of my favorites!

Merry Christmas!

Love the idea of the string with inspiration (or velvet bows!) pinned to it! ...and your hand writing is lovely. Can't wait to hear all about the tea!

thank you so much! i appreciate
the sweet comment you left me.
it made my whole day.

and i have to tell you.. it is so
encouraging to "meet" a young
lady who WANTS to be a wife
and mother. a young lady who
sees that mothering and keeping
her home is the highest calling
she would ever be given.

i love the post you wrote about
how quickly the Lord answers
us and how faithful He is.

i will be keeping up with you
and coming back to your little
spot here.. absolutely.

Sounds like fun! I haven't been to a Christmas tea in years. The poem is lovely too, who wrote it?
