So here goes with a few blessings from the week:
1. A great time around a meal and Bible study with our friends Sam, Jenn, and Noah on Friday evening. Always a delight to spend time together in fellowship and study! Below you see the study we are currently working on. It's very good.
2. Finally getting the year-end bookwork done for my Etsy shop and getting many more items listed. Vintage patterns like the one below are among the things for sale. Lots of vintage cards, too -- really, a great variety of unusual vintage items at A New Hampshire Attic.
3. Seeing answered prayer this week in several challenging situations. Even when an answer isn't always the one we were hoping for, it's always a blessing to see how God works.

5. The blessing of having a home that can minister to all who enter. Someone told me this week what a peaceful place they find our home to be. It's true that one of my goals is for our home to be a peaceful, orderly refuge from the world -- but I feel as if I fail miserably at the "orderly" part so often. It was an encouragement to me to see how God is helping this goal to be reality. (The photo below was taken by Mr. T when he went out for a moonlight snowshoe the other evening. Sort of a cozy view of our home from the outdoors in winter.)
