It’s a week before Christmas, and our house is busy, busy, busy–wiping noses, changing diapers, playing crash, coloring, blowing bubbles and such. All 6 of our grandchildren are here through Christmas–yea! We have gingerbread houses to decorate, cookies to bake, family photos to capture the memories and of course, presents to give and share.
I’m tired but happy!
In the midst of it all, Tom is still caring for me. He took me out this week just to give me the gift of quiet for a couple of hours. He’s thoughtful that way, and it has helped our marriage grow stronger because of it. May I encourage you to remember the importance of kindness and thoughtfulness this time of year? It may be the best gift you have to give, and it costs nothing but your convenience.
We had a couple of guest posts on other blogs this week that we want to share with you. We’re not sure when we’ll be back again–hopefully before Christmas. But if not, you’ll know why.
- Check out our post on Growing Up Triplets blog titled, Gatekeepers of Faith, Not Fear.
- And on Engaged Marriage blog titled, A Gift You’ll Enjoy All Year Long.
The first one is for parents who are wanting to raise their children to love and follow God and what motivates our parenting. The second post provides a creative idea for a Christmas gift–one that lasts all year long. We hope you’ll take time to read them.
Merry Christmas to you and your family!
