Merry Christmas from Our Family to Yours!

Happy Wednesday, ladies! I can’t believe it’s only two sleeps until Christmas. Of course, I still have some wrapping to do and food to cook.

I also want to soak up the next few days with these sweet people below, so I’m taking a few days off for some family time and to celebrate the birth of Jesus.

This has not been an easy year for any of us. We’ve been reminded of how fragile we are and that life is short. More than ever, we should love well!

Left to Right: Cory, our son, Wayne, my husband, me, Colt, our grandson, Courtney, our daughter, Claire, our granddaughter, and AJ, our son-in-law. 

Wayne and I have so much fun with Colt and Claire. They bring a lot of joy to our family.

I am beyond grateful for each of you too. Thank you for taking time out of your day, stopping by my blog, and supporting my business. I could not do this blog without YOU!

As I count my blessings, I count you as a blessing. I pray this year more than ever you feel the wonder of the Christmas season.

    Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
    I “tried” to enter your $100 gift

    I am so thankful for my husband’s health. December 20, 2019 my husband was diagnosed with esophageal and stomach cancer and given a 10% chance of survival. Fast forward to December 2020 we are thankful for the amazing surgeon God placed in our lives. Joe had terrible chemo treatments, surgery during Covid, and 4 more chemos. It has been a difficult year but He is cancer free and working on trying to eat and get stronger.
    God is faithful to those who cry out.

    Thank you for your blog and your witness best wishes for a joyful & full filled New Year

  7. I am thankful that my daughter is home with us for Christmas this year, not hospitalized as she was last year until just a few days before Christmas.

  8. I am thankful for God’s faithfulness and provision. I got a new job after 2 years of unemployment days after learning my father had a fatal condition that was too complex for doctors to operate on. His wife went into the hospital the first week of the stay at home order and almost died before they could operate. Then one surgeon decided he could operate on my dad – it took 2 surgeries two months apart, but he fixed my dad. Then my dad (who takes blood thinners) ell, cut himself and almost bled out before getting to the hospital but got there just in time. It took 3 weeks for him to be stable enough to come home. And my father-in-law was diagnosed with dementia so he’s keeping us busy. We are SO glad to say good-bye to 2020 but we are SO thankful that the Lord saw us through some very tough and scary situations!

  9. Happy Holidays to you and your family. I am grateful for the strength and perseverance of my pastor throughout this pandemic. I am also thankful for your daily compassion and witness that you share with us daily.

  10. Thank you so much for including “Beauty from the Heart”. I can’t tell you how often your words, verse or quote really speak to my heart. The Lord bless you and your family in 2021!

  11. Blessings to you and your beautiful family!! Ithaca been a memorable year for all of us, but one constant remains, our precious Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. We can endure and grow during this unprecedented time, as we draw closer to Him and allow Him to lead and guide us. My prayer is that you will have the most amazing and incredible year in 2021!!

  12. I am thankful that everyone in my family is healthy and that my grandchildren are happy. We are blessed beyond measure. Happy New Year to you!!

  13. My heart is full! We were able to celebrate with our adult sons and their wives OUTSIDE in 50 degree weather before the temps dropped to the teens and the snow started!

  16. I am most thankful for being able to go with my husband and 2 grown children to Christmas Eve service at our church in person for the first time in 9 months. We held candles and sang silent night together with our voices only……moved me to tears.

Now fast forward to December and i have antibodies to help others. God is good all the time-and;all the time, God is good.

  180. I am most grateful for having my Lord and Savior to have walked beside me this past year. While He has always been there, it has been a challenging year for all of us, and we were told our first grandchild could possibly be born with major issues. While we were all willing as believers to accept His will, it was so hard, but we trusted Him. The Lord heard our prayers and we now have a precious, normal, healthy baby boy, thank you to answered prayers and His will! It is easy to praise Him now but I would like to believe that thru this I have learned to accept His will and way, no matter what the outcome may be. I have grown as a believer and praise Him more and more each day!! What a wonderful Christmas we will all have with our precious grand baby, celebrating our Savior!!! Merry Christmas to you and yours!!! He reigns!!!

  181. I am so thankful for my family (I know, not very original) – but even just talking to them almost daily on the phone has been uplifting during all these lockdowns.

  190. It is wonderful to see your beautiful family and to hear about your fun times with them. I am thankful for technology! My daughter and son in law live in Sydney, Australia. So getting to see faces and hear voices is a godsend. My grandson just turned 3. He has a baby brother born May of 2020. I was to go and help my daughter with the babies in April and spend a few months with them. Unfortunately Australia locked down and non-citizens are not permitted into the country. Fortunately I can watch the babies grow via FaceTime, Facebook portal and Zoom. My arms just ache to hold that new baby who is now 7 months old. Thank you for bringing light into our difficult days.

  191. This Christmas I am so thankful for the time we’ve spent together this past year. Having a freshman in high school, I know that had it not been for this pandemic, we would have seen very little of him. So I’m grateful for this extra bit of time we’ve been able to spend with him before we’re too uncool to be around him. LOL!

    Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family! And thank you for always being a light in our inboxes!

  192. Merry Christmas to your family! I am thankful for this year because with all the hurt and disappointments, my daughter married a wonderful man! She didn’t get to have the wedding she had planned, but I am thankful we have a decent sized backyard so we could have the wedding here. I am most thankful for Jesus and his mercy and grace.

  193. I am so thankful that we were able to spend time with our children and grandchildren over the Thanksgiving holiday. More than anything I am thankful for our Savior and his gift to us of salvation. God Bless you and your family this Christmas season. Stay healthy and well.

  194. I am most thankful that God sent his son to be born so that my sins can be forgiven!! And I am so thankful for you and your Christian encouragement. Merry Christmas!!

  208. I am thankful that this year is almost over. It has been a rough one. I cannot believe how many crises our family has had this past year. Last night I said goodbye to my FIL who died of COVID complications and cancer. So, I have not felt the Christmas spirit. It feels like the year without a Christmas. I don’t even have any decorations up this year. I don’t want to be the depressing person who leaves a comment here. I will say that your emails and blog posts everyday gave me something fun and positive to distract myself through the trials this year. Your words that told me Christ is with us and will get us through anything were a good reminder to trust in Him – always. Although this year has been difficult, I have hope for the next year. Let me just say that these pictures of your family are just beautiful. I hope that you all have a Blessed Christmas.

  209. I’m most thankful for my family and our health. I’m thankful for the extra time we have had together this year. Merry Christmas!

  210. I am most thankful for my husband’s improving health after a serious accident. Each day is a blessing. Merry Christmas!!

All have been safe from Covid.

    When I entered, it asked me what I was thankful for this Christmas. It wouldn’t let me type my response, so I will tell you here. I am thankful for the love of Jesus and the joy knowing Him brings. He is there with me through the good times and the bad times. Although this has been a difficult year, I’m so grateful that I can go to Him for strength and comfort.

    Big hugs to you!

    Amanda

  229. What I’m most thankful for is salvation. God gave us a beautiful world to live in, food, water, families. We have homes, cars, great clothes, money, and so much more. But what if Jesus had never been born to become the ultimate and final sacrifice? What if all we had waiting for us when we drew our last breath was an eternity of darkness without Him? Thank you, Lord for your life and work on the cross. This is the ultimate Christmas gift.

  230. Merry Christmas, Cyndi! I am so grateful I “found” you on the internet years ago when I needed fresh ideas on how to dress for a mature Christian woman. I’ve appreciated your honesty and inspiration in your posts.

  231. Thanks Cyndi, for all you do to keep us ladies up to date fashion and also for pointing us to Christ through your blog. Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family 💕😊.

  232. Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family. I truly am thankful for you and the inspiration you are. I look forward to your blog daily and respect that you are taking time away from that to be with your family and celebrate Jesus!!

    1. Merry Christmas to you and your family. I am thankful for the little things that mean so much now. A Christmas card from a friend that I haven’t heard from in years, a homemade treat from a neighbor, seeing an outdoor nativity during a time when a lot of us aren’t attending indoor worship. Things we have often taken for granted, we realize how precious it is and it gives us hope for better days ahead.

  233. So very thankful for family. Our oldest son’s wife gave birth to our first grandchild this month, such a special ending to this crazy year.
    What a beautiful family you have, Merry Christmas to you all.

  234. Merry Christmas, Cindy! Thank you for brightening up my inbox and IG feed– you seem like a good friend even tho’ we’ve never met 🙂 I’m thankful for so many things! Today I’ll say how grateful I am for my two dogs I get to hang out with while I work from home every day– they are the BEST company and make my days so happy.

  235. Merry Christmas everyone! PTL!
    Does anyone have trouble leaving a comment when we enter the giveaways?
    I can’t actually type anything🥲

    1. I’m thankful for my health, God’s grace and dear friends and family. I’m thankful for so many things including you and your emails! Merry Christmas!

  236. I am thankful for your blog and how you always bring Jesus in your life through all that you do! I appreciate it so much, especially since it seems the world is trying to take Him out of our lives.
    I am so thankful for our families even though we haven’t seen much of each other this year; hopefully that will change in 2021.
    Thank you! Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

  237. Cyndi, you’re a beautiful soul and your family is beautiful. Wishing each of you a blessed and Merry Christmas. Yes, it’s much different this year but praying we NEVER have another year like this one! It will just be my husband and me. and that’s so sad. We have a daughter & son in law practically next door to us and a son, daughter in law and grandson in Charlotte, NC. Just won’t happen this year! We’re very blessed ourselves though and in a way, this is a more meaningful Christmas, celebrating the birth of Jesus! That’s what it’s all about anyway!

  238. Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family!
    I am thankful to have ladies like you in my life helping me through this trying year. I have learned a great deal from you and for that I am grateful. I am also thankful that I will be able to celebrate another Christmas with my almost 86 year old mother.

    Merry Christmas and Blessings of the New Year!

  243. Your family is beautiful!! I am thankful for your blog and how you share Jesus through it.
    This year I am most thankful for the fact that I do still have my family, even though two of my sons are far away. I know that they are well. My parents are still with us (in their 80’s) and we have Jesus!
    Thank you! Merry Christmas!

  244. Merry Christmas.. gosh I really enjoy saying that. The past couple of day, going to the grocery store and just talking with people, it has given my spirit such a lift to be able to say “Merry Christmas” and feel the spirit of God with me. I am grateful for the love and support of my family and friends especially my sweet husband as I battled covid and was in the hospital.. I was not afraid because I had the peace of God with me and that is my Christmas prayer for all, that they feel the peace of God.

  245. love these pictures of your beautiful family! This year I am most thankful for my 90 yr, old Mother who is still living and well, and is now living with us! Also for our 5 wonderful granddaughters! God is good !♡

  246. I’m thankful to know God is still on the throne and will see us through this trying time we are in.
    Have a happy , healthy holiday and a blessed new year!

  257. As always I am thankful for close family and endearing friends. But this year I am taken aback, that despite the chaos surrounding us, that I truly feel at peace. That transcending peace can only come from one Source, Jesus Christ. It is Him whom I am very thankful for this year.

  258. I am very thankful to reach the Christmas season with all of my family healthy, safe, and near enough that I see them often. Despite the trials this year has given us all, we are blessed beyond measure.

  259. Merry Christmas! I am thankful to be surrounded by lots of family and friends and for good health to be able to work and enjoy every day on God’s earth!

  260. So thankful for family and knowing Gods gift of eternal life! My mom passed this year and so thankful for Jesus finished work! ❤️

    Much love,
    Jennifer

  271. Merry Christmas, Cyndi! I am grateful that my husband and I are still working, and my daughters are still going to school. We are grateful for God’s grace and our friends and family.

  272. I wasn’t able to leave a comment on my raffle entry so I am leaving it here. I am most thankful for Jesus who’s life and sacrifice gives me hope in a dark world. Without God’s mercy and grace, where would I be? Doomed with no hope of a future. Thanking Him today for my family and health! He is good all the time!

  273. Cyndi, I follow you more for your spiritual side than the fashion side. I do love your fashion posts, but I always look for your uplifting Christian sentiments and reminders. Thank you for being my inspiration.

  274. I am so thankful for salvation! April 6, 1980 I gave my heart and life to Jesus Christ. Through the years He has been my strength and my guide. In Sept of 2003 I fell away from God because of a bitter divorce. I lived back as my old self for 10 months. I rededicated my life to Christ once again in July of 2004 and I was blessed beyond measure. This year of course, no thanks to Covid, has been a hard, heartbreaking year. Especially earlier this month. We lost a member of our family by tragedy. But God is a good God who is pulling us through day by day. I also thank God for my 5 beautiful children, my awesome 3 stepchildren and my 19 grandchildren in all! Also I have had the pleasure and opportunity to take care of my elderly mother as of Aug 2020. God is good and He is our source of strength, help, guidance and comfort in a time of uncertainty. Thank you for your blog every morning. I am blessed by it and pray God will continue to bless this ministry that He has placed you in for us woman of God. God bless you and your family!

  275. Merry Christmas to you and your precious family!
    This Christmas, I am most thankful to know that God is sovereign and He makes no mistakes.
    Thank you for enriching our lives with beauty, wisdom and truths from God’s Word. By the work of your hands, we are truly blessed!

  276. I am so grateful for a God who knows all, sees all and is in control of all. That alone brings peace and hope <3

    Merry Christmas!

  289. I am thankful for many things, not the least of which is my family and our health. I am a healthcare worker who has been able to stay healthy until now…COVID+ just last week. Uggh. But I’m on the mend and will be celebrating that this Christmas! Merry Christmas to you and your lovely family Cyndi.

  293. I am thankful for my family, especially my grandkids who bring me so much joy. Our Christmas get-togethers have been cancelled due to Covid hitting at the wrong time, which will mean I miss getting to meet my sister’s first grandchild, but I’m trying not to focus on that. Your family is so beautiful, Cyndi. Colt is growing up so much!!!

  294. Merry Christmas to you and your family. In this crazy year there were many valuable lessons to be learned. I hope they are remembered, and that the “new normal” is kinder, more inclusive, more just, and more loving. Writing that last sentence I realize what I am hoping for as the new normal is a more spiritual world. Thank you for brightening and lightening an otherwise dark year.

  295. I am thankful for Jesus, and that He loved us so much that He gave his life for us. I am thankful for this Holy Season. I am thankful that my husband and I came through Covid-19(a little rough for the wear) but alive and thankful. I am thankful that we have the freedom to read your posts, Cyndi, and talk about our faith. God bless you and yours.
    Merry Christmas!

Still, I find it in my heart to be thankful for the little things God has chosen to bring to light through the darkness. My family, our health, the roof over our heads, our employment, and most of all our faith have rocked this year and have overcome the darkness we call 2020!

    Merry Christmas and Prayers that we will all experience a wonderful 2021.
