New Year’s Eve

Don stopped by to visit with Richard and Norma.100_0041  They wanted to show him the Christmas tree their daughter made for them about twenty years ago.   The frame is antique.100_0038

This beautiful tree is made of antique costume jewelry that the daughter and Richard took apart.  This was made before glue guns, so each piece was dipped in glue and carefully placed.   The small lights can also been seen, but the picture I took with the lights on wasn’t very good.  It’s an amazing work of art and creativity.100_0038-1

This afternoon, friends Linda and Joel brought Sparky over to meet us.  Sparky is a three month old rat terrier.100_0043

Sparky is so well behaved and loves his pet carrier. 100_0044

Linda was asking what kind of bush this is. What kind of bush is this?

We had a wonderful time visiting and playing Zilch.  We’re so happy they came down to the RGV to spend the winter in the warmth near us.

Well, it’s the last day of 2010 and the natives here are really enjoying their fireworks.  It’s noisy tonight; almost sounds like a war zone; a little un-nerving this close to the border.

December 31, 2010 has been one of the best days of our ministry.  To God be the glory!!!
