Mother-in-law's day!

Yes, on Christmas day, it was mother-in-law's day. It means that we spent the day with her and she was the one who did the cooking. Well, I have nothing against it. She is an excellent cook. Her house is always open for everybody especially me, although I came from  an unknown country, for her before. But through me, she got to know the land and the Philippine's culture. 
After eating breakfast at Christmas day, I cleaned our bathroom and toilet. It is not one usually do on Christmas day, but it needs to be done. After that I wrote a post in my blogs and then we went to my mother-in-law's house.


There was no rain or snow. Beautiful sunset when we arrived at my mother-in-law's house. 


God's hands painting! Makes one very thankful for the sight.



But look who who  wished us welcome when we came!  A Santa lighting the stairs for us, as if we don't know the way to the door:)



Meet the Christms tree girls. We had been taking pictures beside Christmas trees all the time that soon it will be our new names:)


Surprise! Under Christmas tree is my knitted Mrs. Santa which I gave to my mother-in-law as a gift. She really likes it here:)



Christmas decoration here.



beautiful flowers

Then, dinner again: Roasted lamb, cooked potatoes and carrots, brussels sprouts and gravy sauce.


 For our dessert. She must of course contribute to our calorie intake for the day:)



Coffe time! We had to taste her Christmas cookies and coffee liqueur although we are sweet enough before:)


While we were enjoying the calorie bombs, we watched tv at the same time and I crocheted a pair of potholder.






Everything seems so wonderful, but still we have something to remember. 
Ending this post with this prayer
Father, let our ears be tune in to you and not to the cares of this world. Fill our hearts with joy as we listen to you. Lift up our downcast souls and let us experience your heavenly presence, so that we will not seek gratification from places that brings us to destruction.
Thank you for always listening to the cry of our hearts and for knowing our thoughts.
Fill this mind of ours with your wisdom and our hearts with your desires so that we won't bring disgrace to your name. I pray in Jesus name.
JOY
