Barren No More

About a month ago, Shannon Milholland of the blog Jesus and My Orange Juice (really insightful and welcoming place) asked if I’d be interested in writing about how a certain Biblical character speaks into my own personal Christmas story this year. 

Shannon gave me a brief list of names and my eye went to one.

  1. Great post about Elizabeth! Loved it!

    Also "A Lasting Impression!" is YUMMY!!!!!!!! AAAHHH Tammy, I am savoring every page. Claire and Sutton are my favorite people right now!!!!!!!!! Great "scenes"...I am soooo lovin' it. Almost finish and I want to start it all over again!

  2. Agreeing with Veronica...I loved the post about Elizabeth :-)

    And Veronica, no idea how you're holding back. When I got close to the end, I couldn't put it down!! You have so much more self-control than I do!!

  3. Hi Tammy~
    I enjoyed reading your blog post! I've been reading scripture each day the past week or so about the upcoming birth of Christ. I just read the verses about Mary, Elizabeth, and Mary's song that you mentioned. So encouraging. I love watching "The Nativity Story" this time of year. I can't imagine all that Mary and Elizabeth were experiencing. What faith! Thanks for the encouragement you've given me this year! It has blessed me. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!
    Blessings to you, Stacey
