warm fuzzies

Taking a break from the holiday baking/cooking to check in right quick. My sister is here! And her hubby. And another sister (and hubby) and BABY should be here in an hour. Mom and Dad (hopefully) coming later. A party at Bethany’s tomorrow with the whole fam involving brunch, pizza and an entire gingerbread village.

There’s scrummy beef stew simmering on the stove, maple sausage browning in the skillet, Christmas music playing, two trees lit, candles everywhere, joy and festivity in the air.

Sigh. Sigh. Sigh.Warm fuzzy fuzzy.

I got my Christmas spirit back yesterday, surrendered everything to the Lord, and He’s been working an amazing kind of peace in my heart about all manner of things.

Merry, Merry Christmas, my friends!! I’ll be here off and on for the next couple weeks. Stop by and say hi!

I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2:10-11)

Hallelujah! Praise, praise, praise the Lord! Merry Christmas!

    Three cheers for the beauty of Christmas, being surrounded by loved ones & the joy of the Lord as your strength.  I always admire your perseverance & the fruit that comes from it.  Scummy beef stew… another wonderful thing!!!!

    Glad the Christmas Elf stopped by your house with some Christmas spirit head knocking too 😉  It’s a much more pleasant way to spend the season!  And I’m jealous of how cozy and warm everything sounds at your house!

    I’ve been Christmas Spirit-less and I read your blog about it the other day and STILL couldn’t shake it. And yesterday, I was at work and it just hit me… Jesus was born and THAT’S why we celebrate. We celebrate because He chose to humble Himself to come into this sinful world and live a perfect life so that He could die and give Himself as a propitiation for MY sins.

    It might not have put me in the mood for Christmas carols and Christmas decorations, but it at least made me quit wishing Christmas would just go away.
