Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
We skipped Christmas at home this year and took a 10 day trip to Hawaii.
What a wonderful idea this was. We were enjoying 75 degree days while a lot of the country was covered with snow.
The islands of Hawaii were full of Christmas Cheer. It seemed strange to see the Christmas decorations in such a lush tropical location.
People greeted us with Aloha and Mele Kalikimaka and Hau’oli Makahiki Hou everywhere we went. 
My tongue does not work well with the Hawaiian pronunciation. 

Hawaii has so many different cultures. It is so interesting. Hardly anyone you talk to is a native Hawaiian.
I am sure you will be hearing a lot more about Hawaii as I only have about 1600 pictures.
I will you the best for the coming new year.
2013—Can you believe it?
Genesis 1:1
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Ephesians 2:10
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.

What I Have Been Up To!!!!!

WOW!!!! is all I can say. I have been so busy. How about you? 
Washing clothes is NOT just for Monday but whenever 
I have a spare moment to put  them in the washing machine.
I do not iron unless it is something I am sewing.

I have been sewing Monday through Sunday, Oh, that is all week!!

I did visit a dear friend in the hospital.
  I made the bed, cooked, cleaned, have taken several baths, 
brushed my teeth, combed my hair, got some sleep.                                                                                                                                                
There is no time to bake today as 
I had a special wedding to attend.
Blessed to worship and study God’s word.
…….Oh yes, I taught a Ladies Bible Study Class on Tuesday, 
I went to a ladies class Wednesday night, 
I cleaned at the church building on Thursday……..
So it is Not just on Sunday.
I know everyone is busy, 
especially at this time of the year. 
Let us not forget the Peace that Passes All Understanding.

Philippians 4:6-8

New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.
