All is Peace, All is Calm.............

I almost feel guilty sitting here enjoying a 3rd cup of coffee and listening to Christmas carols. Yes, all is calm, at our house today. It just worked out that way for us this year. My Dad and his wife will join Hubby and me for lunch at 1:00. Lunch will consist of grilled steak, roasted potatoes, salad and rolls. Not exactly "Christmasey" but none the less, it's what we decided to have. Later, we will attend a Candlelight Service together and then return to exchange our gifts with them. No, not a lot of "hustle and bustle" at our home today.

But, that will change tomorrow evening. The excitement will begin with the arrival of our daughter and her family. On Sunday we'll celebrate our Christmas with our children and grandchildren and makes lots of wonderful memories celebrating our Savior's birth and exchanging gits. We'll begin the celebration with a big pot of Shrimp and Crayfish Etouffee. I know, that's not very Christmasy either, but again, it's what they want and I'm glad to fix it.

I am so thankful that throughout this past year the Lord has been so faithful to restore my soul from the grief I've experience through my Mom's death a year ago. I had so many days that I just did not know if I could make it, but the Lord was always there to bring me through. I will celebrate Christmas with an even more thankful heart this year because of that restoration and for His many blessings that I certainly do not deserve.

May your Christmas be filled with precious memories as we celebrate the ONE who made it all possible.
