In the hustle and bustle of the season, my hope is that you consider the reason for giving. The babe in the stable, God born to live on this earth, to give himself a ransom for all that we might live again, is the purpose for the joy, the anthems, the love we have for one another and God.
Consider sharing a bit of yourself with others this season. Allow the gifts, the parties, and the rush to slip into the background as you worship the Savior of the World, even Jesus Christ.
My regular blog posts, with interviews of characters in my books, will return in the new year.
Merry Christmas to all my friends around the world.
I’ve been busy this week finishing Christmas presents for my grandchildren. I’ve sewn 6 pair of pajamas and 3 nightgowns, plus I’ve crocheted 3 little animals and a huge play-mat road for the little ones. Some took longer than expected. I haven’t even opened my computer much for days.
I hope your life is busy and happy, filled with the joys that Christmas brings, as you celebrate with your family.
Eve could not have celebrated the birth of Jesus Christ, for it had not happened in her time, but I believe she looked forward to that day. She knew it was coming.
I’ll be back with more next week. Busy, busy, busy until then.
It’s funny how you work so hard on a project, get up every morning, until it’s done. Then you wonder just what you will do with your time.
This has happened to me again today. I finished my Christmas sewing yesterday, got up early to sew the last nightgown, packed everything into boxes and wrapped in lovely wrapping paper, and sent off to grandchildren to open for Christmas.
Today, I woke up and wandered through the house, wondering what I would do with myself in the quiet of the morning. Yes, the Christmas paper litter needs to be picked up, in case we have visitors, and I could bake or make candies, for the same reason. But here I sit. I think I’d rather get back into the writing habit.
I think I’ll start by picking up with my blog and get back into the habit of blogging regularly, once a week. Look for me on Thursday. Then, back to working on my books, yes I have more than one in process. With any luck, next year I can wish you a Merry Christmas as I suggest you buy my books.
But that is next year.
This year, I will simply promise a more regular writing of this blog, and wish you a Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays. I hope your celebrations are filled with family and joy.
