On the Porch

Onisha Ellis

During the Christmas season, I’ve used a lot of photos from Pixabay and Canva to create social media graphics but this one is my favorite. I love the balance of the ages old Christmas story and modern decorations. I added the Merry Christmas message.

All of us at Old Things R New treasure our friends and readers and wish you a most happy and joyful Christmas!

PS We are having a white Christmas here in Western NC! Not a lot of snow but the ground is white and we are excited!

Luke 2:10-16

And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

14 “Glory to God in the highest,
    and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”

15 When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.” 16 And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger.

I'm a winner

After my retirement, I decided to re-learn the canning and preserving skills I learned from my mother but hadn’t practiced for twenty years. I titled the blog Old Things R New to chronicle my experience.  Since then I have been blessed to have six other bloggers join me, DiVoran Lites, Bill Lites,  Judy Wills, Louise Gibson, Janet Perez Eckles and Melody Hendrix

In addition to blogging, I work as the publicist/marketer/ amateur editor and general  “mom Friday” for my author daughter, Rebekah Lyn. I also manage her website, Rebekah Lyn Books  where we frequently host the best in up and coming authors.

My 2020 goal is to use my love of photographs and words to be an encourager on social media. You can visit Real Life Books and Media You Tube Channel if you would like to view some of the mini-videos I have created for our church, Gateway Community in Titusville, Fl.

    We’re enjoying your blogs. Pixabay is very nice, and I see you have another site to help with your blogs. We’re going to Target to walk and to get a card for our pastor who will be moving away into retirement soon. We are very sorry to lose him. He’s moving back to Tampa. We pray for his healing from cancer, and we will sorely miss him.
