Merry Christmas

Like everyone else, it seems like there is more to do then there is time to do it. But as of today there is no swimming practice/meets for a week, my dh's company is on shut down until after the first of the year and I actually have a chance to take a deep breath. Even though I have to work the day before Christmas I am thankful that my family is at home taking care of the last minute Christmas preparations. Thank you guys for picking up my slack today.

I want to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas. As I have said in an earlier post, it has been a different holiday season for me and still holds true today, but I feel warm inside and a little teary thinking about Joseph's and Mary's experience all those years ago at this time. I know God is working on great things for me and my family. Now is the time for me to put aside the confusion in my life and concentrate on the true meaning of the season, the birth of our Lord and Savior and all that comes with it.

“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger." Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.” Luke 2: 11-14 NIV

Peace be with you and your family this holiday season.

We are never alone.

I have come here from Ms. Laura's blog. I have read some of your posts and would like to revisit.

If you like reading short stories from an Indian writer, then a visit to my blogs would be an interesting one for you.
