It's Christmas

I thought I should get something up on my blog that looked like Christmas. Meet Diamond. May you have a blessed Christmas as you celebrate the birth of Jesus, our Savior.

I'll be going to a family Christmas party this weekend, and on Monday...a wedding! My Christmas shopping is almost done. But nothing is wrapped.

The dishwasher broke and the wind storm's power outages took out the TV. We're looking for a new one. The refrigerator broke last month. Well...that's life! (as my mother would say.)

Yes, life is good. I have a husband who loves me, food on the table, a roof over my head, not to mention two sons and a dog to go on walks with. I have loving parents and beautiful blue skies. Tonight I spotted Venus and Jupiter in the night sky, as I put away the ladder. Oh...Mozart was up on it, cleaning the leaves out of the rain gutters.

Traffic is getting thick out there so I'm planning to avoid the stores at all costs, if possible. I want to find a quiet corner. To be at peace. To think about Christmas. To bask in God's amazing love. And Jesus, reconciling us to him. Yes, He has made it possible for us to have peace.

But after that I have a lot to do. A Christmas dinner must be planned, and the house cleaned. But I hope to carry His peace in my soul.

Your dog is so cute! And yes, in the hustle and bustle of it all, we have an inner peace because we have a relationship with the peace-giver: Jesus! Like the angels announced to the shepherds: Glory to God in the Highest and on earth peace, good will towards men.

Merry Christmas to you and your family...and your fine pooch!

That is a cute picture!

I am now ready to stop. I only have a few gifts left to wrap. But now that the music presentations are all over, I can concentrate on just being. The music was wonderful, and so many heard the real story that it was worth every minute of the many hours spent getting ready. I must get to cleaning this house that has been sorely neglected of late!

Thanks for your kind words on my last post!
