This Christmas we did all the things we traditionally do as a family,
this Christmas felt just
a little bit more
a little bit more delight...
a little bit more laughter...
a little bit more excitement...
a little bit more fun...
a little bit more s-l-o-w...
a little bit more restful...
a little bit more peaceful...
a little bit more full.
Even when i woke up boxing day morning with that now familiar pressure feeling in my chest, the Lord provided a wonderful morning of rest with the kids and a fun afternoon and evening skating at my folks place with friends and family.
(and the feeling left and hasn't yet returned!)
God is good ALL the time,
but I continue to count my gifts
~not the ones from under the tree~
and praise Him that the list seems never ending.
O my soul, bless God.
From head to toe, I’ll bless his holy name!
O my soul, bless God,
don’t forget a single blessing!
psalm 103:1-2 (msg)
