It's getting late... past my bedtime (which seems to get earlier and earlier the older I get... what is up with that???), but I couldn't "call it a night" without sharing a few things for which I'm thankful this week.
* I'm so thankful for the people in our church that are so committed to teaching our children about the Lord! My kids have had such great teachers in Sunday School, Pioneer Club, and other church activities. I can't put into words how much that means to this 'ole Mom!!
* I'm thankful for the ways the Lord is helping me to let go of the stress of the holiday season. I've been able to let go and just let Him take the worry and IT FEELS SO GOOD! I can enjoy the season more, focus more on the true meaning, and so on. A real blessing!
* I am thankful for this special time of year when we can celebrate in a big way the gift God gave us in His son. I believe we should always remember throughout the year, but I love that we have a time where we can focus in on the birth of Jesus.
I won't be around much over the next few weeks... going to take a brief break from blogging until after the first of the year. I pray you all have a blessed Christmas with much special time spent with family, with friends, and most of all, near to the Lord... listening for what His message is to you during the Christmas season.
