The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace...Galatians 5: 22

I just got the Christmas tree up today and little Tippi agreed to pose with me in this self timer shot...I wanted my husband in the picture too but he was busy watching football:) This was just a practice shot anyway...Tippi is a natural born poser. She is not afraid of the camera or the beeping sound of the self timer. The blue knit hat I am wearing was a Christmas gift to me many years ago that was made by one of my aunts...She is no longer with us but the hat has special meaning to me of the Christmas Holidays we shared with loved ones in the past and their memories live on in our hearts.

Update: Dec. 9, 2014

I wrote this poem many years ago and revised some of the words since then but I think it
really fits the holidays when we sometimes forget the best gift of all is the value of love
and the reason for the season..

A dog is friend who is loyal and true
They listen to us when we are blue
They don't put on airs or try to be fake
Nor condemn us for the mistakes we make.

They aren't concerned about material things
Or by the possessions that money brings
But are merely content with a pat on the head,
The comforts of good food and warm bed.

When God above created special creatures
I am sure He meant them to be our teachers
To value what is most important on earth....
The meaning of love and all of its worth...
Poetry by me, Andrea J Petersen

Merry Christmas and New Year for 2015!

    Thank you all for your kind comments and faves...The little tree behind us is raised up to look
    bigger on an office chair....I love the fact that it already has miniature Christmas lights on it to plug in which brings a lot of warmth to the corner of the room..

    Thank you Carlos...Unfortunately I am 71:)... We have to make the best of what age we are because we can't turn the clock back; LOL I just hope I stay mentally and physically healthy which to me is most important in life as we grow older.
