Votives Holders with Apple/Peach Votives Yum!

There is nothing like the scent of a wonderful candle.  Especially those that evoke wonderful memories of days gone by.  I decorated these little votive holders and added the yummy scented apple peach votives to them for my Etsy Shop.  I popped them up this evening and they are adorable.


I think they make perfect gifts for neighbors, bus drivers, postmen and women, anyone who enjoys a smile and a friendly reminder that they are special, needed, and appreciated.


Thanks for stopping by!  Praying all is well with you and yours!  Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Yes, I said it!  I said it right out loud...I said Merry Christmas!  When I was little we never thought about whether to say it or not, we just wished everyone a Merry Christmas.  It was a time when we remembered the blessings of Christ's love for us.  The need for a Savior and the provision of One by our Lord.  We celebrated because He LIVED for us!

It wasn't that we were trying to offend anyone!  We weren't trying to make someone elses faith diminish.  We were just rejoicing in our Gift from above.  If someone had a different holiday they celebrated, they didn't get upset; they just said Merry Christmas, then would follow up with we celebrate Hanukkah or something and we'd discuss what they believed and how the rejoiced.

What happened?  What in the world happened?!  Now, it's an offense to say Merry Christmas...Lord Jesus help us all!


Merry Christmas everyone!  May the love and joy of Jesus fill your lives, hearts, and season!

Blessings and love,
Colleen
