Shoes in the front hall, lights left on, heating vents blocked by luggage, dirty dishes in the sink, tooth paste in the bathroom sink, water rings on the table, shampoo bottles empty, tissue boxes on the floor, toilet paper roll empty, recently stocked cabinets void of snacks, milk carton down to 1/2 an ounce, orange juice gone, leaves and twigs tracked onto carpet, beds unmade, shades uneven, television left on, empty soda cans on end tables, remotes lost, crumbs on the couches, phone and computer chargers in every available outlet, wet towels on the floor, clothes strewn and Christmas cookies EVERY WHERE . . . yep, the kids are back in town! Only, they are not kids anymore. In a flurry of activities and conversations and laughter, no one seems to mind the mess. In a flash, the time will pass, the house will be cleaned and what remains will be the quiet and orderly home of a man and his wife with happy memories of a holiday season well spent. May your days be filled laughter, good food, good company and good conversations. Merry Christmas to all! God bless you.
"The mountains will bring peace to the people, And the little hills, by righteousness." Psalm 72:3
Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everalsting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:28-31
My daughter got tired of me venting to her, so she set me up with a blog. Well, the joke is on her because I make her proof-read my blogs. . . sometimes twice to be sure. I am happily married to a great guy, for 26 years. He married me in 1984, then in 1989 and 2007 we renewed our vows. Our children and our faith are our life. Preparing our kids to go out in the world as strong Christian soldiers is priority now. Our time will come later. We love the Lord and love serving Him. As a friend of mine said, I don't apologize for being human, but strive for the eternal. I hope my blogs will make you laugh and think about life in a new perspective.
