HOLY Smokes!

December 19, 2007

OK! Is everyone else out there so busy that you barely have a second to read your friends blogs? That’s my goal tonight! I need to catch up with all of you…I’m missing reading your thoughts!

This is a sign this season is gaining control.

Must…Take…Back…Control.  😯

Awww, I feel much better now!

Hoping and praying, at this moment, that ALL of you are experiencing not just what this season brings to mind for so many – but what each day, this amazing and miraculous life, can bring you. I pray that for each path you’re on you will not miss one thing along the way…Not one pressing on your heart to reach out to a stranger. Calling up a long time friend or family member you haven’t spoken too. Serving someone without expecting something in return. And for those of us who love the Lord, I pray that our ears, eyes and minds will be completely and humbly open to His move and guidance for us.

Have a great day all!

    Nice reminder. Thanks. I wake up in the morning with my thoughts towards heaven and the season, and by the end of the day my thoughts are basically stress, strain, and overall grinchdom…I need to figure out how to keep my focus when the day just wears me out.

    See ya tomorrow

    Amen to this. I’ve found especially in time of need, it feels good to serve others. God is good, sweet, and everlasting! He gives peace in the midst of strife….and trust me I’ve known strife. I thank God that I’ve found your blog my sweet blogging friend!

    Hey Nev! Yep, me too. Start my day with good intentions then BAMM – flesh sets in! Dang it! I guess it would be worse if we didn’t recognize it eh? See ya for rehearsal!

    Blessed1 – serving others. Don’t you think that is the best gift this season. If we see Christmas as a day to remember His birth, the ultimate gift – sacrifice – service, then wouldn’t it be fitting to do as He did and give back by also serving sacrificially in any way we can? It isn’t about the number of gifts under the tree. Whether they’re wrapped in expensive festive paper 😉 It’s not about the condition of our bank acct’s to provide a gift – it’s the condition of our hearts. That has to be our starting point. I think we’re there…I hope we are 🙂

    Christian, I’m only mean on Wednesdays!

    Jenny, YES! We have a couple neighborhoods in our area that do this. They’re the rich ones who live on the hill on the East side. Far, far away from me. I live on some acreage on the Southside. I have a well and septic…Tee-Hee! And a much mower electric bill than them 😀

    Ha! Yes well if you get cool like us now and buy a metal detector you can find all that gold! We actually got it for my mother-in-love and had our Christmas today. It was a blast. The backyard is full of holes and we didn’t find anything, but well worth the money for the family experience.

    Merry Christmas! Just got back from a ski vacation. A week away from the computer; I did have withdrawal symptoms, but I’m doing better now. 🙂
    Blessings in Christ–
