FOR TODAY, MONDAY, DECEMBER 22nd
Outside my window... an overcast drizzly day.
I am thinking...of how Luke chapter 2 tells us of a great company of angels appearing to the shepherds and praising God because of the birth of Jesus. I am thinking that was the very first Christmas cantata.
I am thankful... our Colorado kids got here safe and sound.
In the kitchen... bbq chicken tonight.
I am wearing... black leggings and boots with a burgundy tunic
I am creating... family traditions. Of course, the down side to that is no one ever wants to do something new!
I am reading... "A Plain Scandal" by Amanda Flower. I've been too busy to make to much progress on this book.
I am hoping... people thought kindly of my very first Sunday morning message I gave on December 14. I'm thinking I like doing Wednesday night bible studies better...
I am looking forward to... my next stay-cation, starting with Christmas Eve and ending on January 4. What a blessing to be eligible for vacation again while our family is here!
Around the house... the tree is up and most of the gifts are wrapped. I just need to make my Christmas banner. I hope I can get to it before Christmas is over.
A favorite quote for today...
"Surely this is our God:
we trusted in him, and he saved us,
This is the Lord, we trusted in him;
let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.
One of my favorite things... soft baby cheeks to kiss on.
A few plans for the rest of the week: getting office work done today and tomorrow, holiday cooking Wednesday, then the rest of the week, enjoying my family.
A peek into my day...
