Sending love to all of you-

All of my babes are sleeping under the same roof and it has been wonderful.  Watching and hearing them laugh thrills my heart more than my words can even describe.  Having our oldest home from college is amazing!!  He is like a real life man now.  :)  My husband and I listen with fully opened ears as he discusses upcoming plans with us.  I am beyond proud of him.  

We have been one busy family over the past week and I know it will continue this week.  We have shopped, wrapped, and baked {and baked and baked....} Christmas goodies,  We have laughed and gathered on the couch to watch movies.  If I could bottle these moments up and peek into them when life is busy and frazzled, it would be great!!

The other night my heart felt badly for not regularly posting on my blog and keeping up with other blog friends.  I was reminded of a blog I read a couple of weeks ago where the sweet lady was apologizing for not posting the prior week.  She stated that she had just been so busy getting ready for Christmas and enjoying herself as she did.  I remembered that as I read her blog, I wished I could pick up the phone and tell her she doesn't have to apologize to anyone for spending time with the precious gifts God has given her and readying herself for great celebrations.  

I had to tell myself that very thing!!  Isn't it funny when that happens?  

I may not post regularly until after this week, but that certainly doesn't mean I am not thinking of my sweet blogging friends and praying for each of you.  There are precious women whom I pray for each day.  Some know I do, others do not.  I want to wish each and every one of you a wonderful and Merry Christmas.  May your hearts be filled with His love.  May you know without a doubt that He created you special and for His pleasure.  Each and every one of you are gifts to His Kingdom -and you are gifts to me.  I love you all.

I am continuing to post on my Life with Joys facebook page each day.  If you would like to read quick notes of encouragement, please click here.  I am filled with joy to be able to share Jesus' love.
