Hello and welcome to the November/December issue of The Simple Woman's Gazette! The first week of December is nearly over and it just seems like we turned the calendar. The stove feels so good this morning as I hang laundry up, which will now dry in no time. I have yet to see that sweet little first snowflake of the season, but it won't be long now. I am hoping for that dusting that seems to set everything aright once again.
for the first sunrise I was able to get up from the couch and witness -tears welled up in my eyes
I love to feed the birds! Here is an easy way to give your feathered friends a Christmas treat!
Make sugar cookies with vegetable shortening instead of butter. Refrigerate the dough for an hour, then roll out and cut into shapes of your choice. Bake as your recipe suggests and use a pencil eraser to poke a hole into the top as soon as they come out of the oven. Cool and frost with peanut butter...chunky is best. Press bird seed and harvest corn kernels into cookies. Hang out on trees with twine or ribbon.
Read Isaiah 11:1-5
"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulders and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace."
Until HE comes...
I found this book, Heaven and Nature Sing by Hannah Anderson on the recommendation of Jen Wilken, one of my favorite Bible teachers. I took a quick glance at the first few pages and knew it was a keeper.
