2 days before Christmas...

2 more days! So much to do! I'm trying to finish crocheting a scarf for the daughter of one of my coworkers. I have to finish shopping, got paid today, and I MUST spend time with my brother. He is not here long enough! It goes so quickly! With having to work on Saturday, it makes it hard to spend the day with family.
God has surely met our needs this past year! We are so blessed! I'll do a recap of the year next week, kind of a year in review!
Enjoy your holidays! Merry Christmas! Keep Christ in Christmas!

They're coming!

Sean, Amie and the kids are on their way! I just can't wait!
So much to do and so little time! I am so not ready for Christmas! I currently have 3 projects going at once and I'm not even sure if I'll finish them before Christmas. Who needs sleep?! It's going to be a homemade Christmas this year.
Please pray for safety for my brother and his family as they travel today.
And just a reminder.... He provides for our every need!

No, I didn't have to go up to the cabin to pick up Greg and Bill! Bill got the car started and they actually were home earlier than planned. When they got up to the cabin Thursday night, it was 13 degrees out and 32 in the cabin. That's cold!
Today is sooooo windy and cold!
During small group 2 weeks ago, we read these verses and I loved it, especially with the trying times.2 Chronicles 33:12 & 13-
And when he was in distress, he entreated the Lord his God and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers. When he prayed to Him, He was moved by his entreaty and heard his supplication, and brought him again to Jerusalem to his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the Lord was God.
Some pretty powerful verses there!

Baby, it's cold outside

So glad we are getting closer to Christmas! We've had more snow flurries this year than any I can remember. I just love the cold weather and snow!
This weekend our church is putting on their Christmas play.I usher tonight but Greg and I will see it tomorrow night. Greg and his boss, Bill, are at the cabin hunting. They left Thursday and should be back tonight.
My brother, Sean and his family are coming up next week! I can't wait to see them!They come up once a year. We stopped to see them for 2 days in the beginning of the summer, but it's never enough time!
Greg just called as I am posting this and the car they drove up in, won't start. Battery is good. I may have to drive out there (3hrs) and get them. Greg gets spotty reception on top of the mountain.

Snow and other things

The awesome people of our church raised over 41,000$ at the One Day To Feed The World offering. Considering there are approximately 750 people that attend every Sunday, and it was an offering over and above the tithes, it was totally awesome!
We had snow again yesterday. Not enough to make too much trouble but enough to cover the grass. It's beautiful!
This is the first Christmas that I haven't done ANY shopping. I can't, I don't have it. It is totally depressing but I'm trying to do some homemade things. It just doesn't feel right. I really need to apply the principle of being content in all circumstances and I am trying.
Our small group is over until after Christmas. I'll miss it! It was nice to get to know a new group of people. We had a light meal this past Sunday as a group and some of the families came. I knew Josh had to work but was hoping Kristen could come. She had to work as an elf and it was later than she thought so Greg and I went. Yes, Kristen was an elf. She worked at Corey's mom's Christmas party as an elf, handing out gifts and assisting Santa. Complete with pointy ears!
Til next time...
