'Tis the Season
I can't find my battery charger for my camera...
.
I took my car for an oil change and found out it needed a major repair (we thought it was a minor thing leaking - we were wrong)....
.
I can't shake this pounding headache for nearly a week...
.
But, I am so happy! This is the season it's all about! The celebration of the coming of Christ!
.
I love to give gifts to others....
.
I love to receive beautiful cards in the mail....
.
I love to see visiting friends and relatives....
.
I love all the family togetherness.....
.
I love all the lights, the sounds, the music, the smells.....
.
I love baking for others....
.
I love lighting candles and saying prayers with my family.....
.
I love talking about why Jesus is not yet in the manger (it isn't his "birthday" yet!)....
.
I love the promise of hope for the new year.....
.
I love the craziness and happiness and giddiness of children and adults....
.
I love that I can say "Merry Christmas!" for a whole month.....
.
I love that people smile back!
.
I love our tree and I love that the kids get excited about $1 plastic candy canes along our sidewalk....
.
I love the purple at church - the music, the poinsettias!
.
I love being busy and preparing and making memories with our family....
.
I love knowing that the things we do with our daughters are being engrained on their brains and will be (hopefully) fond memories when they are adults - things they want to replicate with their own families....
.
I love that my girls are willing to use money from their piggy banks to buy toys for kids who don't have any....
.
I can't wait to make cookies with my girls and create new traditions together....
.
I have a lot to do, so I will sign off for now. Once I find the battery charger, I promise to share some new photos!
.
Until then, God be with you!
.
Rejoice, rejoice! Emmanuel! Shall come to you, O Israel!
