The tree is decorated, the packages wrapped, the food bought and prepared, family on their way back home. The holidays are upon us!
Now we can kick back...well sort of =) and enjoy these next few days with family and friends. It appears we are in for a very full house this year at our home. I think I am up to 14 for Christmas Eve dinner alone!
What is on my mind right now, and I hope something I will carry in my heart through out the season and through this up and coming New Year... "The Glory of the Unlikely" This post from Barbara has especially touch my heart this season. Here is an excerpt from her post, please do yourself a favor and read her piece.
"He is the God of the unlikely, the God who requires stables in which to birth His beloved rather than the pristine palaces we might anticipate. So let us expect to find Him there, in the stables of our lives and worlds, the circumstances, situations and people where we least expect Him to be. Indeed, let us see that the glory of His presence is most often in direct proportion to the appearance of His absence..."
I want to wish all my blog friends and their families a very blessed and Merry Christmas!
