#TuesdayTreasures with Stacey Weeks

Good Morning and Welcome to the first edition of Tuesday Treasures for December 2018!

Wow, I still can't believe 2018 is winding down so fast and Christmas is just 3 weeks away from today!

Our guest has been in our spotlight with her books In Too Deep and The Builder's Reluctant Bride, but please welcome her back as Stacey Weeks shares something she treasures with us.....

I treasure a tablecloth. I know that sounds silly, but stick with me, and you’ll soon understand.

Years ago, I took a plain white tablecloth and wrote Psalm 106:1 down the middle using fabric markers. “Give thanks to the Lord for He is good. His love endures forever.”

We use that tablecloth every holiday and each person present writes down something for which they are thankful. Searching for notes from family members now with the Lord or notes from when children were younger is a holiday tradition.

Melody Staff celebrates many holiday traditions in Mistletoe Melody. When her family spends Christmas at a bed and breakfast in the village of Mistletoe Meadows they also pick up a few new traditions from Quentin Oxford and his endearing daughter, Janie.

A former musician, Melody Staff, spends Christmas at a bed and breakfast in the village of Mistletoe Meadows. While everyone sings familiar carols of Christ drawing near, Melody stumbles over misplaced notes. Her recent diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis has scared off her fiancĂ© and thrust her life into a grand pause. Will her heart ever sing again? Quentin Oxford has endured a devastating year. His preteen daughter suffered a stroke, and they’ve grieved his wife’s sudden death, but the Lord coaxes a surprising refrain from Quentin’s heart as God rewrites his and Melody’s score into a love song.

Mistletoe Melody is part of Pelican Book Group's Christmas Extravaganza and can be purchased at Amazon.

Stacey Weeks is the multi-award-winning author of Glorious Surrender (2016), inspirational romances The Builder’s Reluctant Bride (2016), Mistletoe Melody (2018), and inspirational romantic suspense novels In Too Deep (2017), and Fatal Homecoming (2019). Stacey lives in Ontario where she speaks at women’s conferences, teaches writing and bible study workshops, and writes about the things of the Lord. www.staceyweeks.com

That tablecloth sounds precious. What a good idea!

Raquel Byrnes said...

Love the idea of passing on tradition.

Alina K. Field said...

Love your holiday tradition!

Stacey Weeks said...

Thanks, Emily! I really love the tablecloth. It's held up well over the years.

Stacey Weeks said...

Hi Raquel, our kids already argue over who gets the tablecloth. We have another plain white one ready to start next year or so. This one is almost full. Thanks for commenting!

Stacey Weeks said...

Thanks, Alina. When we first began, it seems like it would take forever to fill the tablecloth. Now, we are almost ready to start a second one.

Lisa Lickel said...

Creating our own family heirloom is fantastic! Thank you for sharing. We have friends who had all their guests sign a similar cloth they treasure.

Stacey,

I do understand treasuring a tablecloth. I have one that was my mother's and she gave me before she passed away. I value it highly. Happy holidays! Best wishes for your continued writing success.

Carol James said...

What a lovely tradition. Thanks for sharing.

Stacey Weeks said...

Lisa, that's a neat idea. I've never thought of having one just for when we have company.

Stacey Weeks said...

Jacqueline, those types of gifts are so special. Both our parents are coming for the holidays this year, and I am excited for them to sign it again and leave a comment for us to find later.

Stacey Weeks said...

Hi Carol, thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. Have a wonderful Christmas!

Diane Burton said...

That tablecloth is a treasure.

Alicia Dean said...

Oh, wow, I love that idea. Yes, the tablecloth is indeed a treasure. Your book sounds great. Congrats and best wishes!

Mary Felkins said...

I've contrived so many ideas to encourage a heart of gratitude in my four kids (now almost grown-ish) but the tablecloth idea might just surpass them all. What a treasure! Thanks for sharing this, Stacey.
