Ferraby's 12 Days of Christmas!

Sing with me friends.......

On the twelth day of Christmas         

The Good Lord gave to me...

12 fabulous friends                           

 (Yes! Of course I'm counting YOU!)

11 baskets of toys
10 shelves just for shoes
9 full bellies
8 hours of sleeping 
(aaaahhh-that was a good night!)

7 chickens laying!   

(Liam's chickens just started laying eggs-very exciting!)

6  kids homeschooling                 
5 cups of caffeine!!!!!

(just kidding...I'm not that bad-yet!)   
4 rowdy sons
3 precious daughters
2 corn snakes  
(not kidding-we have 2 snakes!)

and a husband named Marc Ferraby!

(Those who know me well, will notice I did not add our DOG!!! to this list! :) )

"Every good and perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights,
who does not change like shifting shadows."
James 1:17
In the hustle and bustle of Christmas and shopping for gifts-let's remember that everything we have is a blessing from the Lord-let us remember others who have so little in comparison, and let us be thankful
and remember that if we never give or receive another gift in our lifetime, we have already received the greatest gift-through Jesus Christ!
May I encourage you to slow down today...for just a few minutes...praise the Lord, and count your blessings! I bet you can come up with at least 12 of them!!!!!!
