brand new!


... a new year is upon us! 
What joy to know that we have been blessed with another year to glorify Our Lord
with our lives...

It will be a quiet New Year's Eve here in the cottage... we will be playing a board game after dinner,  since my oldest is home for winter break.  And boy he is one fierce competitor :D

~*~


The quietness of winter embraces us here in the mountains.

Praying that this new year that is just around the corner, will be filled with joy and so much peace.  The peace that only Our Lord can give us!

Happy New Year my friends! 

much love,
mari

  4. Hi Mari,
    Many blessings for your New Year! I love the cosy pics :)
    Ours was a quiet one too, but having had our young ones here for five days(and it was lovely) I found myself quite happy to have a serene and restful time.
    We also have a determined board game competitor in our midst..he runs rings round me, but we are neck and neck at one game only: Scrabble! haha!
