www.allposters.com - George S. Knowles - Christmas Cheer
I have done very little Christmas shopping and am not nearly ready for Tim's birthday Christmas Eve or Christmas or Lindsay's birthday January 1st and our 22nd wedding anniversary January 2nd!
But I am not worried - I find that I am full of the Christmas spirit. I have been focusing on Christ this Christmas - specifically His Coming...
Love was when
God became a man
Locked in time and spaceWithout rank or place
Love was God born
of Jewish kin Just a carpenter
with some fishermen
Love was when
Jesus walked in history Lovingly He brought
A new life that's free
Love was God
Nailed to bleed and die
And love one such as I
John E. Walvoord and Don Wrytzen
When I was younger, I sang in our church choir - we learned this song as part of a musical...it has stuck with me all these years.
Tonight is a cozy night in...the older girls are headed out to our friends home for a few hours. Then they'll be home.
Yesterday was filled with breakfast out with my husband ( a rare treat!), a stop at the hardware store for stain and polyurethane to finish the fabulous table my husband built! Then I needed to head out to give a ride to my son and his girlfriend to their prenatal appointment. They were so happy to hear the baby's heartbeat for the first time...back to our house for a little bit, then off again to take them home nearly an hour away. Home again briefly and then off to a meeting.
I am really looking forward to being home tonight and enjoying the tree and my family - not necessarily in that order, of course!
In fact to let you in on a secret, right now it is 6:30 pm and the kids and I are in pjs and Rachel, Kyle and I piled into my bed!
I am going to have a great evening - how about you?
