We had a wonderful Thanksgiving altogether as a family. My husband did a lot of the Thanksgiving cooking and he found this potato shaped like a heart. Isn't it amazing? In all my years of peeling potatoes I'd never seen one quite like this! My oldest son was home from college and our parents were here, too. It felt so cozy to have everyone together. My boys cheerfully pulled out the sleeping bags and had a great time sleeping together in the same room. The floor didn't bother them in the least. After our day of feasting we trimmed the tree and made our home all pretty for Christmas. Then my boys wanted to climb onto the roof to hang icicle lights at night; a task their Dad was all too happy to give up! The twinkling lights are just the thing to chase away the darkness which comes all too early in the evening now.
With the focus now on Christmas I keep thinking about making room for Jesus. Mary made room in her womb for the Messiah. The inn keeper made room for Mary and Joseph in his barn. Will "I" make room for Jesus this season? With the decorating, baking, card writing and giving I want to keep the reason for the season in my heart. It was with a very generous heart God gave his very best to us through His one and only Son. Will we receive Him?
This season I intend to get cozy with Him :)
Praying you have a blessed start to your Christmas season.
