Merry Christmas to everyone!!
I don’t have anything inspirational or thought provoking to write about today. I am just enjoying the hustle and bustle of this Christmas season and feeling grateful for the tinsel on the Christmas tree that reminds me of my Mother’s love for Christmas that she passed on to me.

My testimony – my cozy – my peace.
GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST, AND ON EARTH COZY, PEACEFUL TESTIMONIES FOR ALL!
