I have made so many excuses to myself lately for why I haven't blogged.
I don't have time. I should be doing homework. I haven't thought of a good post. I don't know what to write.
Well, I do have plenty of other things to do...but this Advent and Christmas season, I want to say YES to those things that really bring me joy--
remembering the REAL reason for joy at Christmas (my Savior is God-made-flesh, born in a stable, for me and for you!)
decorating our home
spending time with family and friends
baking and cooking
laughing with my husband
I've missed this. The thrill of putting words on the page (screen, whatever), out there into the vastness of the internet, for you to read and think about.
I want to say something meaningful, but for now...
what brings you joy?
the music of this season?
anticipating visits with friends and family?
preparing gifts for loved ones?
special Advent and Christmas worship services?
Those things that bring you joy, they are gifts from God. Thank Him for them! And delight in them. He loves seeing us enjoy His blessings.
And for that reason, among others, I hope to be writing much, much more.
