Perfect Gifts...after Jesus, of course!

Every good and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is not variation or shadow of turning. James 1:17 NKJ

The above picture shows the last event from our own Christmas day with family and friends. We had two families join us, one (Jay's daughter's) family of four, and the other was the Doudin family of six with four lovely girls. So, twelve of us gathered to play and eat and converse and laugh. It was simply divine for this grandmother who misses her own grandchildren desperately at this time of year. The LORD provided me with comfort and joy! And then....

The perfect gift for an avid gardener is what My DH (dear husband) built me, a serious worm box so I can reap the benefits of vermiculture for my garden. Really, though, it is a lazy way for this gardener to deal with compost in the winter. The amazing box is in the sunroom where it is cool. It has handles and sits on rollers so I can pull it out. It is the most wonderful gift, the most perfect gift for the serious gardener who always wants more options. I am married to a wonderful man, and we had a wonderful Christmas; it's a wonderful life, as they say in the movies!

Love the pictures! So are there worms actually in the box?

Love the photo of "Auntie Grandma" reading to the kids. :-)
And your worm box is a super duper model, with handles and rollers and all. I am quite impressed.
My Christmas present from DH is a garden Arch/Arbor for the walkway between my picket fences in front. That is, if we can ever find it again under all this SNOW? Here's hoping you are able to get out to see your kids.
