The WORD on Wednesday: Love III

which is the great commandment in the law?
Jesus said unto him,
Thou shalt love the Lord
thy God
all thy heart,
and with
all thy soul,
and with
all thy mind.
This is the first and great commandment.
And the second is like unto it,
Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Matthew 22:36-40 KJV
How often I have failed at these two commandments;
how thankful I am for the love, mercy and grace of God even when I fail.
Blessings this Wednesday eve,

A Look Back at 2010: A Little Bit of Christmas

Now that we are past New Year's Day and Valentine's Day.
it must be time to post some Christmas photos:)
Our yummy smelling Christmas wreath--
I just took it down this week and it still looked good except for a few areas in the back;
yea for our humid winters!
(I know, you thought I would never say that)
My best friend always makes my wreaths-
we work together on the design I want each year;
this time I was into a semi-natural look.

Lefse--store bought this time but a necessary part of my smorgasbord!
This year I got my DH to take a teeny tiny bite of the lefse-
I was very happy he at least tried them!
We also had pickled herring (love, love),
pickled beets (yum)
and Swedish meatballs (big time yum)!

Mini Christmas stockings--
I bought several different kinds to use as napkin & eating utensil holders
(an idea I got from Bed, Bath & Beyond)...
but that didn't happen due to some circumstances,
so next year?

More food:
Christmas eggs: the 'tree' is a piece of dill--I think I saw that somewhere on the web;
the 'berry' is a piece of dried tomato rolled up. My DH & I liked them very much,
but next year I will use a pastry bag for the filling.

Pressgurka: peeled, scored, thinly sliced cucumber in a mixture of vinegar, sugar, salt. These are always good no matter the season and I have made them for a long, long time.

Pickled beets--store bought but oh so good!
I also bought an assortment of cheeses and goodies,
but we didn't eat them this night because it was so late in the day.
I love cheese from Scandinavia and have a weakness for Danish cookies:)
