|Our front yard January 2010|
Rest is not idleness, and to sometimes lie in the snow, making snow angels under the twinkling stars on a cold winter's night, listening to the wind mingle in the pine trees...is by no means a waste of time.
So many wonderful, resonant images come to mind when I think about the holidays--candles and colors and laughter. Past memories linger while I continue to create new memories in the present. We're empty-nesters now, so I decorate our house alone. Sad but true. But I will not resist this chapter of my life! I will embrace it with endearing love, brighter colors and louder laughter.
As Christmas approaches, let us remember the reason for the season.
Jesus + family = Christmas.
And after recently spending an evening with our friends here in the Carolinas, I added one more item.
Jesus + family + friends = Christmas
My fellow WINners, you will not see a $ sign in the above equation. Oceans of blessings to you in the days to come!
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in freezing snow; He leads me beside the frozen pond.* Psalm 23:1-2 *well, something like that. NewSharonLeafVersion
