Happy New Year it's once again a time for reflection. And you all know how I love reflection. How was the last year, what do you want from the new one. There is so much I'd like to do. I want to grow in my blogging. I want to to get more into my quilting I'd like to get at least 4 quilts done this year. I want to add some color to my life and home. To stop and smell the roses more, to plant the roses. To listen to more music and watch TV less. I'd like to find something for my daughter and I to do from home. I want to study the bible more at least one study a month. I want to grow as a person I can see areas I need to change. I don't like who I've become. I know that it's a defensive mechanism to protect myself no one else will. I want to learn that all the negativity can be dumped on you and it doesn't have to make you neg. That you can still be positive even when your over whelmed by negativity. I have to believe that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Thought I'd post my favorite Christmas song for all of you When I was a kid we use to watch the Bing Crosby Christmas special and one year this was the song he sung and it became my all time favorite
Hope you all enjoy it.

The first day is always the busiest I make so much food I made a bunch of latkes, fried chicken, and some gravy. Yes we eat latkes southern style. Hope you all have a happy holiday. It was so nice having Des and Chris over with K she love potatoes and it was her first Hanukkah I hope she will not be to disappointed as she gets older that she'll not get gifts during any holiday. It's the only thing I hate about the holidays I'm not allowed to give. Oh well it doesn't stop me from making thing to give during the year. I did make some thing and gave them early.

One of the ladies I follow did this and I'm stealing her idea. So to all my followers and readers of my blog if you would send me you address in the comments or if your uncomfortable with that e-mail me your address (my e-mail is in my profile). I would love to send all of you a Christmas card. I just bought a box for me to do this. I really hope you all will let me do this for you.
Love you all

I kinda got into a heated discussion with my niece on facebook last night she put a comment Let go and Let God I said UUUHHH no I don't think so because I have seen to many people use that as a way of doing what they want. Well she came back that she was sad for me. I don't know why but I told her not to be I wasn't. Again I tryed to explain to her that there are a lot of people out there that use that as an excuse to sin cause they are letting go and letting God. Then I get attacked by her friends because of my avatar. Mind you these people don't know me or my reason for my avatar, I'm a 49 year old woman who suffers from Summer SAD so I have a sexy young cartoon in the snow that says Snowflake are kisses from heaven because I'd love to be young again and in the snow. At this point all I could say was they proved my point and I'd be praying for them. They all missed the deeper point I was trying to make. My son and I discussed this very thing last weekend and he was able to see what I was saying.
Let me say now that I don't really think of my self as a Christian (not in todays terms) but I not a non-Christian either. I believe in the Messiah as well as the Torah. I'm a blend of the two it's called Messianic Judaism. For me this was the best next step in my walk with God.
Now the reason I dislike the saying let go and let God. I have seen a number of people say that I'm letting go of everything and I'm letting God control everything, all the while spending like there's no tomorrow just because they want it, back biting their family,always wanting more of what their neighbor has, living very unwise. In the mean time as they are letting go and letting God they are filing for bankruptcy losing their homes, cars, getting divorced, and have kids that run wild. And they wonder why God didn't fix those things they were letting go and letting God, He was suppose to be in control. You can let go and let God all you want but you are still reasonable for your actions and the consequences of them. It's not about whose in control it's about trust. I don't think God controls or wants to control our life we do. The more we trust God the more we move our life in that direction. I have free will I chose the the path he wants or not. He wants us to freely chose His way that He knows best, trust that He will provide and stand by us. But we must also do the right thing, pay our bills, learn to say no don't drive ourselves in debt, don't care what are neighbor has, cherish your spouse, discipline our children, live wisely.
I guess the saddest thing is, is what I hoped people (my niece) would want is a deeper conversation not just the surface that most people get when you let go and let God. In stead I feel like I got jumped. I should have known better surface is all there is to most people.
Thanks for letting me rant.

Is there any place on this planet that the flies take a rest during winter. I'm about to go mad I feel like this kitten.
I can't even open my door without 100's OK maybe not 100's but it feels like 100's coming in the door. I'm about to go postal on them. This is a warning to all the flies out there I'm out for blood and I'm going to let my dog eat your dead bodies. HAHAHAHA how do you like that.
Until later and hopefully a calmer one
