What have your first days of December held for you so far?


'When You did awesome things which we did not expect, You came down, the mountains quaked at Your presence.'
- Isaiah 64:3



  1. What a lovely list of blessings, Raquel! What kind of recipe did you use to make the Peanut Butter bars? Because they sound delish! :9

    We've decorated the house and tree for Christmas, and watched episodes of "I Love Lucy" in the evening. So far so good! Can't wait to see what else the Lord has in store. ;)

    Take care!

  2. Lovely post! I need to do my own "it's December" post soon...before December is gone. Honestly, it feels like this year has gone ZOOM! Right by me. However on the first day of December I met a large quarter horse named Luke and went through the emotions of wanting to steal him, learned of a horse who was 40+ years old, got to see my great-grandmother happy and remember the joys of reading Jane Eyre. It was a good day. Sierra
    Keep growing beautiful!
    P.S. Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting! It made me day!

  3. I love those everyday blessings that God puts into your life to brighten your day :)

    Which bands follow you??? :)

  4. One wonderful thing this December that I've done: watched the winter finale of Once Upon a Time last night!!! :) Another thing: listening to Jackie Evancho sing "Ave Maria".

  5. Yes! Who follows you on Twitter???!!!
    December things that make my heart smile:
    Indie Music.
    Catching snowflakes on my tongue.
    Peppermint Hot Chocolate.
    Midnight guitar playing.
    Getting letters.
    Ace-ing my government exam.
    Reading the Classics.
    Oversized sweaters.
