Just wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas! I’ve got a bit of a sinus infection today but other than that this holiday season has been perfect. A dream come true. I am so grateful for my family coming to Utah for the holidays. Especially being sick I am SOOO grateful that I don’t have to travel right now.
I am also grateful for my house and the chance I’ve had to make it a Christmas home with lights outside and my first real tree inside. I am grateful for my memory ornaments and twinkle lights. I’m grateful for the tree in my room and the goodies I’ve made in my kitchen. I’m grateful to have a home that I love, a wonderful roommate and amazing tenants leaving and great one’s moving in.
I am grateful for the stories of Christmas whether it be in a movie, book or play I love Handel’s music, Scrooge’s redemption, Ralphie’s red rider bee-bee gun, or George Bailey’s epiphany. I like the sappy movies on Hallmark and all the Christmas carols even the silly one’s. I love the gifts I was able to give this year and excited to get a few tomorrow.
I am grateful for our Christmas traditions of German food and a nativity play. I also had a lot of fun spending time with my siblings this week including playing games yesterday and getting Christmas manicures with 2 of my sisters.
Most importantly I am grateful for Jesus Christ. His birth, life, suffering and death makes it possible for all of us to be redeemed from sin and despair. He has walked where we have walked . He has understood all and he loves us like nobody else could. I know he is my Savior and He has never forgotten me even when it seemed I was totally alone He was there. Gloria! His name be praised.
I hope He is with you this time of year and always. Thank you for all your support on the blog and the love and fun we have together. Thank you and Merry Christmas!!!!
To any of you that are alone this Christmas, I’ve been there and love you. Christ loves you. You’ll get through it and next year you may find you’ll have the best Christmas ever. I know what that is like. 🙂
