I have so enjoyed this Christmas season….the quietest and most relaxing yet…as I have not had the usual distractions of a commercialized celebration. I have spent mornings in Luke enjoying new revelation of Who God is —Who He longs to be to us and for us and in us.
Each day has held it’s own lovely gift —a phone call from an encouraging friend…an opportunity to see the Miami City Ballet perform the Nutcracker…sitting down with John to watch a Christmas movie…the arrival of a big box filled with vintage cameras that on old college friend came across and, knowing my love of photography, took the time to package and pass along to me.
Today’s delight included a visit from Misses M & G and Mommy. We made sugar cookies and enjoyed using our Cup of Christmas Tea set to sip hot chocolate. It is the first time I have baked with Miss M, and what fun it was to watch her discover the joy of baking with dough and cookie cutters!
I hope you too have been enjoying these special days…and that you have had the opportunity to slow your pace and reflect on all the wonderful gifts God gives to you every single day!
