The beginning of the month started off like a whirlwind and I felt like I was being swept down the current of Christmas insanity. I just didn't know quite how to unleash myself from all the busyness. So, I prayed and asked the Lord to rearrange my schedule and slow things down... and HE DID! I was SO thankful He did because I had lost my joy for the season. Now, I'm actually looking forward to Christmas, family and celebrating the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.
I've been working on a post for nearly a month. Yep, a month! It's not going to be finished before Christmas so I decided to post a few pictures of our month, instead! It's been a very full month with grandchildren's school performances and two birthdays (and another one after Christmas) and just life in general.
Here are just a few delights:
|A fun day baking with my daughter!
A few of the grands spent the night and made gingerbread houses!
|One of the highlights of the month is
studying God's Word in a warm bed.
|Miss Sassy loves our devotional time, too!
Merry Christ-mas from our home to yours! May your celebration be filled with the knowledge of God's great love for you that is found in Christ Jesus the Lord!
“An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord'” (Luke 2:9-11)
Until next year! (Lord willing!)
The idea for this post came from Coffee Tea Books and Me posts called, My World this Week!
