Merry Christmas

As I sit and bask in the glow of our tree, and watch my family open their gifts, I am thinking of so many things. I am reflecting on the true meaning of this day. How God left his wonderful heaven and became human. A baby. So little and vulnerable. Sent here to die. On a cross. For OUR sins! I am letting that really sink into my soul. I am so happy because I know that I have screwed up more times then I can count. For all of the hurt I have caused, I am sorry. I am glad that someone who is so great, loves me, and forgives me. I hope this year I can try and show that same kind of love to everyone else in my life.

I am thinking about all of the amazing things that have happened this year! We have filled a jar with little pieces of paper that have all of the big, small, funny and sad times on them from the past year. I can not wait to go through those little pieces of paper in just a few days! I am feeling truly blessed for everything and everyone we have in our life.

I am also thinking of all of you that have lost someone this year. In the last several months we have been to 5 funerals. There are a few more that we didn't make it to, and a few that I only know through the internet. All of the people that are gone have left behind families. It is those people that wounder into my thoughts today. I can not imagine your pain or loss. I can only pray that you can find peace in your hearts and can enjoy the loved ones that are with you today.

From our family to yours, Merry Christmas! May the bad memories fade away. May the good memories live on in your heart forever. And may the new year bring you peace and joy!
