Christmas Time is Here!


So, I'm pretty sure to consider yourself a "blogger" you actually have to, you know, blog.  This is becoming an apparent struggle for me as of late.  It's quite puzzling really.  I have no real reason for this to be the case and I keep hoping that this block will dissipate or at least fade a little.

So far, I haven't been so lucky. 

I found myself telling someone the other day that 2013 will consist more of me/us staying put.  2012 started off busy and it's only fitting that we'll be traveling every weekend of the it's final month.  Mind you, I am so excited for all of the places we're traveling to, but I'm ready to embrace being still, and that starts this Christmas season. 

I realize we can't be still in the literal sense, but I want to rest more in the Lord and recognize everyday what this season is all about.  Our halls are decked and presents are waiting to be wrapped, but more than anything, I want my heart and soul to completely at peace.

Each day goes by faster than the one before it.  Sure, we all of days that seem like they'll never end, but for the most part, time flies and shows no signs of slowing down.  It's hard for me to believe Christmas three weeks away because at times I feel like I'm searching for ways to "feel" this special holiday. 

Does anyone else feel that way?

As a kid, it's a piece of cake to feel excited for this Christmas because you're anxiously awaiting Santa's arrival.  But as adults, it's harder because we're in constant motion between work and life.  Christmas has one true meaning and it's so important not to lose sight of that and something hubs and I have started doing, is this Christmas devotional.

This has started to be one of my favorites parts of the day for me.  It's just a couple of minutes, but it's exactly the reminder we both need, not just at Christmas, but throughout the year. 

Next Saturday, we'll be headed to my grandparents and then to an ugly Christmas sweater party.  Both of these things I'm extremely excited about, but my concern is where to find a sweater to wear to said party! At Saturday night's Carolina game, I saw a perfect one...but it was on the woman sitting in front of us.  Sadly, I didn't think it would be appropriate to tell her I believed it was the perfect one, nor do I think she would've gladly handed it over :)

I will you with the words below in hopes this is not my only post of the week! Happy Monday everyone!
