Christmas 'JOY'...

 Grant us 'JOY',
supply your grace-

A reminder... of that night SO long ago
And of the sweet child we would know as
JESUS, bestowing great love to the world.

Let us remember... & not lose sight!

Feeling MUCH gratefulness to have my mother...

We are to ENJOY the simple things... 

The stockings were hung & filled with LOVE!

Twinkling lights makes everything seem right...

Our goal should be to SHARE the 'JOY'
that Jesus has so freely gave...
to comfort those that are hurting in this
world today.

I'm SO blessed beyond measure for my
surroundings on this day & everyday... my hope
is to spread His love to all the precious souls!

With GREAT love on this Christmas Day!

Oh, Christmas Tree...

WELL... folks, the Christmas tree is officially
decked out in it's festive ware...
I don't think I have EVER waited
this loooong to add the tree for the Christmas season.
  Let's hope that it doesn't happen again...
 because the next time, there may NOT be a tree!
I planned it more around a WINTER theme, since it was
SO late going up... PINE CONES & SNOWFLAKES it was!

ENJOY every moment of the following days my sweet friends!

Decorate the season...

"Percy, the puny poinsettia is hanging
his bloom in dismay.  If they had just
kept him wetta, he'd be a houseplant today."

From the song... 'Percy, the Puny Poinsettia'
By: Elmo & Patsy

We have some... 'Poinsettia' LOVE happening
here at Beehind Thyme... 
some are flowered to their fullest & some
are coming along slowly for an 
extended stay throughout the winter season.

Creating more baskets today... with a few
that's let for the taking.

Will present to you tomorrow the end results
of today's mess!

Happy Tuesday!

Be Merry...

Be merry all, be merry all,
With holly dress the festive hall;
Prepare the song, the feast, the ball,
To welcome Merry Christmas.

~ William Robert Spencer

Glorious, Sunday Morning... to all!
May your light shine BRIGHT for our Lord Jesus!

Friday Greetings...

Wishing you a season filled with FRESHNESS!
~ Me

Greetings... on this fine Friday from the farm!

I'm sharing one of the many planters created by
Beehind Thyme this Christmas season.

By choosing to be 'GREEN' in my many ways of
FRESH GREENERY can be a delightful resource when it
comes to decking the halls both indoor & outdoor.
Here... we have pine, cedar, magnolia, holly & pine cones
nestled in this large planter at the base of a
pre-light tree.  Birch branches (my choice here at the farm)
have been coated with a dusting of white paint.
Then, let's NOT forget those magnolia pods...
throughout the arrangement, I've tucked them
amongst all the other fresh staples
to create a fullness.
And with this planter the theme was OLD FASHION, so
with that... I brought some red, plaid ribbon
into the bow.

JUST a reminder:
A BEAUTIFUL creation doesn't have to be
an expensive one... simply step outside your door
for some inspiration from nature!

Stay in peace,
not pieces.

~ Joyce Meyer

I'm longing for... SIMPLENESS at this moment,
while amongst ALL this Christmas decor...

PLEASE, tell me I'm NOT the ONLY one still
without a tree???

'Norman Rockwell' Christmas, indeed!

I'll never
have enough time to
 paint all the pictures I'd like to.

~ Norman Rockwell

It's a 'Norman Rockwell' Christmas here at a local bank...
a FULL & I mean a FULL week (day & night) was devoted to this project,
of course with much DELIGHT!

If you happen to reside here locally...
you HAVE to drive by in the late evening & peer into the large windows,
it TRULY looks as if a small town in Massachusetts called
STOCKBRIDGE  is nestled right on the other side!

If you are not familiar with 'Norman Rockwell'...
PLEASE, take a peek at this wonderful tribute the
people of STOCKBRIDGE create each year at Christmas.


ENJOY a BLISSFUL day my sweet friends!

A Quiet Life...

Make it your goal to live
a quiet life.
1 Thessalonians 4:11

It's been a 'GREEN PICKIN' day... here on the farm, 
I've pinched til my thumb has turned green!
Every fall I make sure there are several plots seeded
with Collards, Curly Mustard, Turnips, Kale & Cresses
for harvesting throughout the winter months. It's a warm
comfort knowing there is a surplus of food right here on our land.
So guess what's on the menu for this evening???

You've guessed it... 'GREENS & CORNBREAD' with a big slice of onion & a drizzle of vinegar... 

(Photo was taken last winter, thought it was appropriate
for today's post).

Sharing JUST a little festiveness this evening...
a custom made wreath for one of my customers whom
I'm dearly fond of...

Have a WARM & COZY, December evening!
