If you normally don’t have sound turned on (you know who you are), please turn it on now! This is one of my very favorite songs–any time of the year, if you listen to the whole song, but especially as we move into the Christmas season. I realize that some of my friends may not celebrate Christmas. If you have never known my Jesus, let me tell you about him some day. He’s amazing!
One more day until Thanksgiving…one more day until Chip’s birthday. I am so thankful for blessings beyond the thinking of this wee brain of mine at the present. But I know this…God has blessed me with the responsibility of being a wife and mother, and I so treasure those roles. In both roles, many other people have come into my life–mainly other people to “mother,” and it has been such a privilege. If I had to pick what I am most thankful for, I think that would be it this year…the people who have become like part of my family. Most of those people are teenagers, who don’t make me feel like a teenager, but who remind me on a regular basis that I am where God has placed me, and I am living a life that God desires. Oh, how I long to please him in all I do!
