It's the most wonderful time of the year

Wednesday, December 3, 2008

Things I LOVE about this time of year:

  • Pulling out all the ornaments and recalling the fond memories attached to each one

  • Salvation Army bellringers. God bless those men and women.

  • Opening the mailbox and finding stacks of cards instead of bills and ads

  • 24 hours of Christmas songs on the local radio station

  • Seeing all those precious pre-school decorations the boys made over the years and being thankful I kept every one of them.

  • The kindness and generosity of people who "just know" that this is a season of giving even if they don't believe in Jesus.

  • Opening the family Christmas album, reading last year's letter and adding the current one.

Enjoy these next 22 days of Advent.
