Merry Christmas Eve everyone!  If your day has been anything like mine then you can truly appreciate the quiet moment before family and friends arrive.  It’s been a crazy busy day of cooking, running last minute errands, cleaning and well of course, last minute gift wrapping.  Last night I was so proud of myself because I was down to the last 3 gifts to wrap this morning.  Well, that didn’t happen.  I found 2 bags filled with gifts that had yet to be wrapped.  Let’s just say I get a tad carried away with gift giving.  I love giving all the kiddos all sorts of goodies.  So here I was today wrapping a pile of gifts amid all the craziness of today.  But that’s okay!  I was still calm, cool and collected.   I took time out through out my day to just relax even if it was for 15 minutes.  Sometimes we just need to stop and pull away from the craziness of the day and just relax.  I’m almost done with my night of cooking and all the gifts are nestled underneath our tree as we await all our guest.  And i’m at peace.  I didn’t allow the season of the holidays to overcome me.  This year with God bringing me peace into my life, I have been able to be so much more calm and relaxed during these days.   I’m so grateful for all that God has done for my family this year.  I have experienced a beautiful change in my life and it’s all thanks to God.  As tonight you begin your celebrations with your family, friends and loved ones, take a moment to reflect on the year God has blessed you with.  Take a moment to show God how thankful you are for everyone in your life and all that he has done for you.  I just love that as we celebrate the Christmas holiday we are celebrating the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.  We honor Him on this day and it’s our greatest joy to celebrate his birth with our loved one.  We wish you and your loved ones a blessed Christmas.

Psst…God Loves You

Then the angel said to her, ‘Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.  And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus.  He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest’ ” Luke 1:30-32
