If you stopped by here today from New Hope Digital — thanks! If you didn't …well, thanks for coming however you found your way here!
Today is December 14th — just 10 SHORT days until Christmas and I don't have my tree up! I know! The decorations are in boxes and some of those boxes are still in the basement. I tried to get them out but I got stuck between the boat and the wall. It wasn't pretty. I managed to wedge my fanny between that big black outboard motor and the garage wall. I shifted, wiggled, but I was stuck. I was sort of dangling there with my head just inches from floor and my rear end up in the air. I started laughing. Oh my! I finally wiggled free and then crawled out from under the boat. I managed to snag one thing on my way out.
Truly, there is JOY in this world because of Christ's sacrifice. Even though my tree is not up, presents aren't wrapped and cakes haven't been baked — there is still JOY. Jesus is the joy in this world. That's truly the meaning of Christmas.
I'm still going to get the tree up — but first I'm asking my sweet husband to move that boat.
LOVE this, Mary! I have a tree up, but not a real one (which is unheard of for me!) The skinny artifical one might just have to safice this Christmas. I am stuck in a wonderful place of just wanting to worship the One who came as opposed to getting swept up in the holiday hangover of presents, decorating, preparing, baking, wrapping, shopping. I am just trying to “be” this Christmas instead of “do.” Loving that position right now! Stay right where you are, Mary. It is a good place to be (not stuck between the wall and boat, though. That is not good) Love to you!!
BAHAHA – I can totally picture that scene.
You are so funny and bring such joy to those around you!
And what a great message – “there is JOY in this world because of Christ’s sacrifice” AMEN!!
Our tree isn’t going up this year. We have a beautiful nativity that I love to look at and remember what our God has done for us.
Amen, Jesus is my joy.
