Merry Christmas to each and every one of you! I’m sorry for the late post, but I really just got up. Munch woke me up for the first time super early and I was exhausted. We played. He opened gifts and we laid down together to watch a movie and fell back to sleep.
It was great. We’re cooking dinner and playing with his new toys waiting on the rest of the family to arrive. It is the greatest time of the year. There’s nothing more perfect than being with family and friends this day. Being with the people that love and support you and remind you that you are loved. It’s one of my favorite things.
So, I encourage you to remember that. You are loved. You are blessed and you are needed. Remember that it is not about the gifts, but the fellowship with family because the real reason for the season is Jesus.
As you may recall, I’m taking a blogging break until January 2nd. I am going to be checking in and reading your posts to get back in the habit. But, I’m officially off until the new year. I am spending time with Munch.
In my absence, I will be sharing wonderful posts by some great bloggers. Please check them out. They are amazing and each and every one of them would love to hear from you. Share their posts, comment and follow. Be brilliantly engaged!
Okay, that’s it. Munch is staring me down. He’s actually waiting for me to finish up this post because he wants me to help him put his toy together and play. I have an incredible boy that reminds me how blessed I am. Let me go and play with my son. I love you all. I wish you the Merriest of Christmases!

Christmas is a special time
To give, to serve, to love
It isn’t just about yourself,
But others that you think of
The presents, the trees, the glowing lights
Are fun but have no part
In what the real meaning of Christmas is…
That is in your heart
Even if other people don’t,
You should try to do
The things that you would want
Them to do to you!
The holidays are a busy time
But they are sometimes good
Because they keep you thinking
About others like you should
So this year, try to not think about yourself
But think of the things you can do
To help others have a wonderful Christmas
And you will find that you will be happy too
Wishing you the Merriest Christmas!
Merry Christmas Everyone!
This is the last time we will celebrate Christmas in 2015. This is our holy day where we want to remember that Jesus is the reason for the season. Let us take time to remember that amidst gift giving, bountiful meals or volunteering.
Jesus is the reason for the season!
6 For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
What I received this year…
Faith – A renewed faith that everything will work as it should. This year has been one that has tested my faith in relationships, humanity, work and motherhood. Being a woman of faith doesn’t mean that I don’t question things. On the contrary, it means that I’m human and I know my limits. I know what I am capable of and more importantly what God is capable of.
Let’s remember that:
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God— not the result of works, so that no one may boast. –Ephesians 2:8-9 (NRSV)
