The Peace Of Christmas Eve

It's here, finally it's Christmas. Remember when you were a little kid you didn't think Christmas would ever come.
There was so much to do leading up to the big day then all of a sudden it's Christmas Eve. All the shopping is done and the gifts are wrapped. Cards have been sent and received. There will be those waiting at home for family and friends traveling for miles to get there. Little kids are getting so excited because they know Santa will make his rounds tonight. The tree is up and the lights make a soft peaceful glow that makes everything look so pretty. It's Christmas eve and something happens as the day wears on, things seemed to slow down. Take some time this evening to appreciate the quite peaceful time of Christmas and remember the reason for the Season.

(2:8-14) "And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."

I wish you all the peace of the season now and all through the coming year. Merry Christmas Everyone.

The 1st Day Of Winter

Yes it's the first day of winter but I think Mother Nature got a head start on snow this time. This morning everything was covered in ice thankfully a lot of it has melted. I hope you have gotten most of your Holiday shopping done so you can stay in and snuggle down.

Tis' The Season

Tis The Season.
Yes it will soon be Christmas. I have always loved Christmas. When I was a little kid Christmas was like magic. The beautiful lights that all of a sudden just appeared out of no where and my mom would make the most amazing things just for the holiday. My dad would go out in the woods and come back a few hours later with a big tree. He would go up in the attic and bring down the lights and ornaments we would decorate the tree and the whole house. And nothing smelled as good as that tree.
I'm so blessed to have such great memories. So think about it for just a minute ,,,, what is your favorite memory of Christmas?

As your going through daily routine this Christmas season. Take the time to make a special memory that will stay with someone through their life time. When it's all said and done it's not the expensive gifts or how perfectly clean your house was that will stay in some one's heart. The things that people will remember will be the warm invitation to your home. A special card that lets someone know your thinking of them from across the miles or just down the street. Or pick up the phone and give someone a call just to say hi.

Just try not to get so busy that you forget the reason for the season. Make some time to be kind to someone.
Now get busy that tree is needs to be decorated, there are cookies waiting to be baked and the cards still have to be signed and mailed out.
