Hello sweet ladies,
When we came home from work we ran out to the Refuge Cabin to finish it up before the girls came. Set the table......
with name tag on each plate..........
I tied a simple homespun ribbon around the pint size mason jar and placed a 1/2 pint jar with a tea light on the inside. Then I placed a plastic glittery snowflake in the front. When the candle light shown through it was so pretty.
In the center of the table I placed a hurricane lamp with some evergreen garland around the base and some white snowflakes. Real simple!
Turned the lights to the little tree........
and to my star box......like how it turned out!
Put my Merry CHRISTmas on the wreath and hung on the old window frame. One thing........wish CHRIST was all in caps! Smile!
Lit all the candles around the little room........I wish I could have captured the lighting for you. It was so pretty!!!!!!!
Look who looked in the window while we were working! The other day she wanted to come in to the cabin. Had to put a chair by the door so she wouldn't. She is not 7 months old.
My sweet man led us in prayer......he asked the Lord for
protection over the girls lives, that He would
use the night to bless them......we could trust the evening with Him,
He loves them more than we do!!!!!!!
Focaccia Bread for simple sandwiches
Lettuce, sliced tomatoes and greenpeppers.
Whole wheat and regular crackers filled in a cute fat jar.
Sour cream, cheddar cheese for soup and ranch dressing for sandwiches.
Tressa made an Apple Pie. We placed the pie and the plates to the side, until they were ready to serve.
They came. We welcomed them to the Refuge Cabin...and
left them to have their party....with CHRISTmas music in the background.
They had fun and enjoyed the meal. One of the girls is a dorm
Mom, she wants to have her girls come......she will get back with me. Another party.......oh my, the Lord has started a good work! So glad He is letting us be a part of it!
You know, when I prayed all those years ago for so long for a place of Refuge?
I know He put that desire in my heart, not me. He had a work that He wanted to complete.......never ever thought it was going to be college kids! He is good, He always knows just what we need and when we need it!
Thank you sweet ladies for being a part of this little dinner with me on facebook! It was so fun to tell you the things that were going on!
It is really cold and the ice is here. The lights keep flickering. Pray we don't run out of electricity. It will be cold!
Hugs to your weekend,
