Do You Have Enough?

I got the green ribbon out and wrapped it around an empty cardboard tube. I put the tube inside the Christmas tree candy jar. I rolled up one piece of ribbon and stuck it in the lid of the jar. There was enough ribbon to make a Christmas tree inside of the Christmas tree candy jar.

I used a green runner on the table and set the Christmas cake plate Rose gave me in the center. I put white and gold candles in the crystal angel candlesticks I bought at Goodwill on the runner and set up the crystal manger scene on the cake plate. I thought my tablescape needed a touch more gold. I found a scrap of gold, lace trim. There was just enough to go from angel to angel.

I hung lights in the big window in the front room and ran tulle over the lights, hooking it on the same cup hooks that held the lights. There was enough to swag the tulle at the top to imitate clouds.

We ate leftover stroganoff for supper. There was enough to feed all three of us.

Living under a blessing means you always have enough. Living under a curse means you are always short. One or the other will overtake you: a blessing or a curse.

Deuteronomy 28:2, 15, “All these blessing shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God…But if you will not obey the voice of the Lord your God or be careful to do all his commandments and his statutes that I command you today, then all these curses shall come upon you and overtake you.” ESV

Dear Lord,

I thank you for caring about the little details in my life. You know how much I love decorating and you provided just the right amount of ribbon, lace, and tulle. 

And thanks for the break from cooking!
