How I miss the mark and limp some Decembers. The upheaval in the calendar is a challenge to me, but I want to walk the best I can and not put a damper on everyone else's time. I long to cherish Christmas oh so quietly in my heart all year long. But my children with their twinkling eyes and joy of expectancy remind me that the 25th is one of those days as well. And so it is, and I join in and continue the count if you will put up with me again. My prayer is that the holiday is more in the heart and in the being, rather than all the doing; that it's about love and this awesome Jesus of my every day.
healthy children in the winter
daughters who help make cookies
buds ready to bloom
people of prayer
candles in the evening
making the Centurion laugh at the live nativity
the mitten tree near the stove
holly and evergreens
love, light and life
Jesus come as baby to this earth....
