Todays Verse: So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2: 6-7

1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour

salt. Add to the creamed mixture and blend well. Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts.

Something Special to do: Think old-fashioned today and get out some green and red construction paper and scissors and glue!!….Why? cause remember those old-fashioned paper chains you made when you were a kid? Well…..I think you get the picture! That’s right, cut some strips of paper and start connecting and gluing. Of course if you have kids, you wont feel foolish at all, but if you don’t… then try it and see if it doesn’t make you feel younger and maybe even relieve a little stress, cause you will probably start laughing about it. Then, you got it!!… hang them chains on the tree, or over a doorway or all over your house if you like. Make a fun time out of it and get some old pictures out and just reminisce! But relax and have fun!!
