I LOVE CHRISTMASTIME. I LOVE CHRISTMAS TIME. I LOVE CHRISTMASTIME.
The lights. The glitter. The snowmen. The trees. The smells. The weather. I love everything about it. I tried not to rush through Thanksgiving this year. I tried to wait, but I didn’t. I was just too excited about it this year. I got my trees up, my mantle put together, all of my fun decorations put out! My shopping almost done! There is something about this time of year that brings me so much joy!
We had a great Thanksgiving full of food (LOTS OF FOOD), family and football. We are blessed to live close to both of our families so we were able to spend quite a bit of time with both.
Also, our Red Raiders beat those Baylor Bears and put the cherry right on top!
With all of that said, this time of year brings out other emotions. We are coming to the end of another year. Another year older. Another year of dreams not coming to life. Another year of waiting. It’s bittersweet. I know that there are so many of you that feel the same way. Wanting to be so happy, so joyful. But there’s still a tiny space inside that is longing to be filled.
My prayer at the beginning of this season for all of us is Peace. True peace that comes from the one who promises us the desires of our hearts. True peace that passes all understanding and a hope that gets us through each day. There is no time to be sad during the holidays, we have Christmas movies to watch, people!!!
I hope everyone has a great week!!
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7
Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 34:4
