Can you name five blessings from your week? Susanne from Living to Tell the Story hosts Friday’s Fave Five each week. Click on over and see her if you’d like to join in!
My favorites for this week:
1. Being finished…for awhile. All done at school and ready for Christmas vacation! I took an exam and finished my class last week, too. The new year is coming!
2. Christmas secrets. Oh, the phone calls and texts about Christmas surprises! So much fun. The boys are buying and shipping and packing and bringing. And here’s the Georgia Christmas tree that will greet them when the walk through the front door!
3. Boys at home. It will only be two this Christmas, but we’re thankful to have them. We have plans for a special, fun family day while they’re here, too. (Going to check out Legoland!)
4. A short trip. I’m taking off to see my mom for about five days, and we’re going to see Aiden, too.
5. A Christmas quote:
“This is the message of Christmas. We are never alone.” (Taylor Caldwell)
Emmanuel – God with us. From that first starry night in the stable until forever, He is with us. That’s what Christmas really means. He’s in the here and now; He’s in the future. He’s in the joy and the pain; He is with us.
May you know joy in the week ahead.
