Wow! Two posts in one day! I guess that is what vacation is for, right? BTW, having a BLAST on vacation.
Much to my surprise the door bell rang this afternoon and as we opened the door we found our friendly neighborhood delivery man standing at the door with a delivery for "Becky Burton" (the birthday girl,..did I tell you it was my birthday?). My man had not only gone out to buy steaks and ice cream (duh! It is MY birthday) and chocolate cake, but he had gone to order me 12 beautiful red birthday roses. AWWWWWW.
Notice the Christmas Tree in the background? Yep, it is neat to have a birthday two days after Christmas.
So, as I sit here and listen to my Fi-pod (that is what I nick named my fake ipod that mom and dad gave me for Christmas) I get the best of both worlds. Christmas Tree and Birthday roses.
I'll leave you with some Christmas Pictures.

Need a gift idea for the Beckster? Visit Maggie Moo's by clicking here - The Worlds BEST ice cream (according to me!)
Though it is a 45 minute drive....it is worth it! Better Batter with a scoop of Dark Chocolate...ahhhhhhhh there is nothing like it. Of course, don't forget a cone for the "drive home". (my mouth is watering thinking about it).
Happy Birthday to me
Happy Birthday to me
Happy Birthday dear Beck Beck
Happy Birthday to me!

Oh, I know Jim will be quite upset with me as he doesn't like this picture...and actually, he doesn't like getting his picture taken but I couldn't resist! I just love my man!!! He is so much more than my hubby. He is my Pastor, accountability partner, therapist (poor guy), lover (stop gasping..I'm married to him I can say that!!) and last not but not least my very best friend in the world. I have so much respect for him. I am blessed to have a Godly man who loves Jesus more than anything on this earth.
If you are reading this and your marriage isn't that great. Please don't despair. Pray! Pour your heart out to The Lord and cry out for help. Pray for your "man". Ask God to save him, deliver him from strongholds...whatever it is you have on your heart.
I read a quote the other day that said, "The grass is greener on the other side, but to get it to be green you must water and fertilize it.". Maybe your "grass isn't so green", pray and ask God to show you how to invest in your marriage. Marriage is hard work, it takes 100% from both spouses. With The Lord, you can do it! All things (even wonderful marriages) are possible with Him!

I couldn't believe it! When my family and I returned from Friday Night Live (ministries at church), someone had tinkered with my outside nativity.
Imagine my surprise when we pulled up to find my plastic nativity (Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus) had visitors!!! It was like a Christmas version of "While You Were Out". Someone anonymously came and added three wise men and a beautiful, bright star to my outside decor!! (oh, need I mention the neatly arranged electrical wiring that was added).
So, to whoever you are... THANK YOU! What a surprise and unexpected blessing.
