The last Sunday in 2013....

                            "Great is the spirit of Christmas that brings to every heart

                                   peace, goodwill toward all mankind"

                                                                             - Horace Wilson

                            "But there is a better thing than the observance of Christmas day,

                                    and that is keeping Christmas."

                                                                            - Henry van Dyke

The UMW Mission Focus for today is the Emma Norton Services in St. Paul, Minn.

May this day be filled with special blessings for you!

  8. *Nellie - the cookies are mostly ginger; they are dark because of molasses and dark brown sugar, with one tablespoon of cocoa. There's lots of fresh and dried ginger, plus other spices. Try them!
