Merry Christmas

     I kind of thought I would have a little more time on my hands once I made it to Christmas break, but I have been busier than ever for the past few days.  No complaints here…I LOVE Christmas (obv), but between marathon grocery shopping, house cleaning, present wrapping, cooking, and battling the crowds, I don’t know that I’ve had time to breathe!  In spite of all the crazy, we went to my church’s candlelight service last night, and I was reminded again of just how small everything else is.

     That’s it.  That is the only important thing.  I’m excited to spend time with family.  I can’t wait to eat (and eat and eat and eat and eat) delicious food.  I love seeing everyone’s decorations.  BUT…knowing and believing and celebrating the One who loved us enough to leave Heaven, live this life, and die for us surpasses everything else in every way. 

But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.  Luke 2:19

     Merry Christmas to each of you and your families!  I hope the next few days are just wonderfully filled with food and fun and family and the most important thing of all.
