Here we are Christmas 2010! I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year.
I wanted to say thank you to each of you who have stopped by my blog this year. I am so thankful for you and treasure the friendships I have in blogland.
Many of you know that I lost my Mom to cancer in 2009. It’s so hard to believe this is my second Christmas without her. I’m so thankful I had such an amazing Mom who shared Christ with me her whole life—— even as she was dying.
This Christmas I wanted to leave you with a few gifts you can give that are FREE and yet are the best ones you can give.
…..it’s so easy! Hug your family. Mom always wanted us to hug her before we left and if we didn’t she’d come running outside and catch us. She would tell the grandkids to give her a “huggy buggy” and they thought that was so funny. So hug your family extra tight this year and if they try to leave without one —-go catch them!
Say I love you
……words are powerful and we need to tell our family we love them. I’m so thankful I was able to tell my Mom I loved her many times during the last weeks of her life. None of us know when our last day on this earth will be so tell the people around you that you love them and tell them often. You will never regret it.
……..sometimes we get our feelings hurt or we can hurt someone in our family. Jesus reminds us over and over again to forgive those that have sinned against us. This Christmas don’t let anything come between you and your family. Life is too short to hold grudges or have hurt feelings. Forgiveness is a wonderful gift to give!
I pray you will have a wonderful Christ filled Christmas. I hope you know how much He loves you!! You are truly His treasure.
Walking in His Grace,
