Perhaps the best time of this Christmas eve was a last minute visit (no not this one!)
One of these years I'm bound to get a hallmark version don't you think?The visits were to two older members of our congregation, on which both my daughters offered to accompany me. YAY! Both visits were joyful, and reminded me again what a great gift it is to be a mother, to be a mother to wonderful people, and to have so much to be thankful for. As much as I am guilty of delight at things to be unwrapped, I am pleased to find myself contented and grateful for these moments I am able to spend with people, hearing about their lives and sharing their joys. Let us not forgot my family train is generally a circus, and I am always pleasantly surprised at those who welcome it in and embrace it. I am delighted to have sons and daughters that bring joy to others and to me, children in whom I can see the desire to love others well. It is an amazing gift to be surrounded by people better than yourself, and to be able to claim them!
And little daddy will be four FOUR tomorrow.. can you even believe it!!
Here we are in our Christmas Jamma Finery wishing you the very merriest of Days! May the peace and love that came embodied as a babe lying in a manger fill your heart and home and may the hope that He brings to this world light your path.
