Happy New Year!

All of these days off during the holiday season are great, but man, I’m getting TIRED!  I think I’m going to need a vacation from Christmas vacation!!! I wish I could say I’m tired from all of the fun we’ve been having.  However, the flu is what really wiped us out!!  YIKES! Soooo, since I […]

Merry Christmas!

Happy Birthday, GEM!

God’s Encouragement by Meg celebrates two years of Tuesday/Thursday postings today!  WOOHOO!  Seems strange how quickly the time has gone and how much I’ve enjoyed this blog adventure. Considering I knew nothing about writing blogs and less about my Savior, Jesus Christ – I am amazed at the growth that God has allowed me to […]
