Merry Christmas!

Christmas 2013

I had in mind to write a post on Jesus’ birth and how Mary must have felt when the angel visited her.

Then my children asked me to play a game with them.

Then my son showed up with his girlfriend.

Then my mom called to tell me she would be arriving sooner than expected.

And I decided I was in the midst. In the midst of enjoying my family. In the midst of showing and receiving love. In the midst of enjoying precious gifts from my Creator and Savior. So I am savoring those moments and saving my writing time for later, when life is quieter.

In the meantime, I pray you are relishing life in the moment, right where you are. And I pray you recognize these moments are precious gifts from a loving God–the One who, so many years ago, gave His one and only Son . . .

I encountered the above version of Hallelujah in Leslie Leyland Field’s blog post here. It brought me to my knees. I pray it blesses your socks off!

  1. The little moments are what make the season blessed. Praise the Lord for every single thing! Thank you, Barb, for being one of those blessings.
