Christmas is coming

It's December!

And though the events of our Thanksgiving week put me behind schedule, it's beginning to look a little like Christmas around here.

Come, Thou long-expected Jesus

Born to set Thy people free;

From our fears and sins release us,

Let us find our rest in Thee.

Israel's Strength and Consolation,

Hope of all the earth Thou art;

Dear Desire of every nation--

Joy of every longing heart.

Born Thy people to deliver,

Born a Child and yet a King.

Born to reign us forever,

Now Thy gracious kingdom bring.

By Thine own eternal Spirit,

Rule in all our hearts alone;

By Thine all-sufficient merit,

Raise us to Thy glorious throne.

Now tell me--have you done your Christmas decorating? Have you posted about it? If so, please let me know--I'd love to gain some inspiration from you!


  1. So pretty and you are not behind. That is what I was thinking at first, too. Then I realized that because so many started so early it made us feel like we were late. It is just now the first of December!Soon Christmas decor will be up before Halloween in people's homes.

  2. Your house looks so pretty with the C'mas decor. You got all month, how could you be late, people are coming along with the decorations everyday!
    Can't wait to see it. Happy Weekend.

  3. Richella your home looks beautiful!! I am just about finished with my decorating. I always start the day after Thanksgiving. Martina

  4. Your home is so pretty! Hope your son continues to improve and your joy is coming back! :)
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  5. The outside of your home looks wonderful. I'll bet at night that your big lighted wreath looks great.

    I've done all of the decorating that I'll have time to do. (Unless it snows and I have a day off from school!)

  6. I love, love, love the wreaths on your windows! I have been wanting to do that for years, but it still hasn't happened:) I put up our stockings, advent calendar, aand decorated our front door....but that is all I've had time to do so far! We still have a ton left to do including getting a tree at some point hopefully this weekend! Have a great weekend Richella:)

  7. I've posted about mt decorating, well some of it! come over and see :-)
    I love you house, can't wait to see what you're doing inside

  8. Yes, I have decorated. No I have not posted about it. Maybe I should do that! :)

  9. No Christmas decorations yet.
    I guess it's a hold over from childhood. Both parents have birthdays in December so we would wait until after my dad's birthday (today!) and decorate the house. Hubby works today, but we're 'on it' really soon, like Monday.
    Richella, your home looks lovely.

  10. Your home exterior looks so pretty decorated for Christmas. I love that big wreath on the front of your chimney. Hope your son is feeling better now and you can finally start enjoying the holidays.

  11. And 'this beautiful prayer ....

    Semlice, fast and nice
