|This was my inspiration picture.|
|This is my mantel.|
Next, I experimented with getting the lights on our Christmas tree to look like stars using a photo technique. I wanted to have Warren in the picture, but he was busy with a heating pad on his leg, so there is only the stars. I will try again later to get this picture with a person.
|Wish I had a person in this picture.|

I have a couple of dear friends who have become wonderful prayer partners with me. Early on, our motto became: Clean hands and a pure heart. Consequently, a lot of our gifts to each other have something to do with hands and hearts. I love this heart ornament. When I hang it on the tree, I think and pray for my friend.

Thank you for taking a trip down memory lane with me this morning. It has warmed my heart which is wonderful, because today is rainy and dreary...but I am thankful for the rain! Be warm and blessed.
