That’s Christmas To Me

That's Christmas To Me

It’s hard to believe it’s the Sunday before Christmas! December goes by so quickly. In the blink of an eye we will begin a new year. This weekend we’ve had two family get-togethers. We talked and we laughed and we ate. What would Christmas be without all the delicious food? Family is such a big […]

Christmas Gifts For Young Adult Children

Christmas Gifts For Young Adult Children

Gone are the days that I get to purchase toys for my children. These days I get Christmas lists emailed to me and the gifts aren’t as fun to buy but at least I know they’ll like them. I will say, both of our children are single and money is tight (Cory is paying back […]

I Need A Silent Night

I Need A Silent Night

Every December I begin the month wanting to prepare. Not for the get-togethers with family and friends, or for all the baking or gift wrapping, but I want to prepare my heart. I don’t want to get caught up in all the hustle and bustle and miss the most important part of this holy season. […]

Sunday Encouragement-Christmas Memories

Merry Christmas! I think we all love traditions this time of the year. We have traditions with our families and with our friends. As we unpack our Christmas decorations many of them bring back memories of Christmas’ past. I’m sure you have a special ornament or decoration that reminds you of someone special. One of […]

Merry-Christmas

Christmas is a wonderful time of year but many of us remember loved ones and experience a mix of emotions because we are missing them.

Christmas in Heaven is a song dedicated to all of us that have lost a loved one. May we find peace and comfort during this time of the year.

Seeing Christmas Through The Eyes of a Child

Seeing Christmas Through The Eyes of a Child

There’s something about seeing Christmas through the eyes of a child. They make Christmas magical!

This year I’m seeing Christmas through Colt’s eyes. He loves the Christmas lights and when we drive by a house with lights, he says, “Merry Chrithmas” (that’s how he pronounces it. :-) )

Seeing Christmas Through The Eyes of a Child

I also love to hear children sing at Christmas. They’re voices are sweet and innocent.

Here’s one of my favorite Christmas songs sung by children from the Brooklyn Tabernacle in New York City.

Merry Christmas friends! I hope you have all your presents bought and wrapped, your goodies baked, and your house decorated. If I did, it would be a Christmas miracle!

Last night my husband and I did some Christmas shopping. We had fun, but to be honest I saw a lot of people who didn’t look like they were having fun.

(Of course, I had to take a picture of us shopping!)

Keeping Christmas Simple

It seems the more secular Christmas becomes the more miserable it becomes. Have you noticed that?

The older I get, the more simple I want our Christmas.

      • I want to celebrate Christ’s birth.
      • I want to enjoy our family and friends.
      • And I want to slow down.
