well, i’m sitting here with my christmas lights on and my dog in my lap, and i’m so happy! christmas is almost here…we only have 4 1/2 days of school left! YEA!!! then, a nice little break where bill, mel, zoe, and tessa are coming friday (you can see a pic of zoe and tessa below) and then ben and i are off to oklahoma to see the stover and williams girls (jen’s pic is below too). we cannot wait for christmas to get here. i’m listening to ben folds right now…a song he wrote about his son. it’s great, and it really has made me think about how there’s such a short time that parents have to teach their kids everything they need to know and pray that all goes well and that they end up in the Lord’s will doing what He wants them to do, not what they want to do. (you can read the lyrics at benfolds.com. he looks a little wierd but is a great writer!) anyway, i guess i often forget about how Christ was a little boy with a snotty nose, that had to be potty trained, and then had friends that he would hang out with. and all that time, God was preparing Him for the three years of ministry that He would do on earth. i can’t help but think that He was doing ministry before then, too. anyway, these are just some thoughts i’ve had this Christmas. I pray that your christmas and holiday time is filled with all kinds of family and friends and wonderful times of drinking and eating. may God bless you and keep you, may His face shine upon you all the days of your life. peace of Christ.
it’s almost here!
