Spirit of the Holidays

We have started doing evening devotionals with the girls but I have not been real consistant with my own. I used to get them sent to my e-mail box and would read them pretty much every morning but I changed my e-mail never signed back up. Not too long ago I signed back up to get these daily devotional e-mails but still have not been real consistant with reading them. It is amazing how many excuses I can create.
This morning I did read the devotional that came into my inbox but it was the one from yesterday that really hit home. It reminded me of how important it is to not get caught up in the hecticness of Christmas. Christmas is about how we treat people and what we can give. This devotional reminded me that sometimes just being patient and understanding transends all the presents in the world.
You can check out yesterday's devotional here. And if you are interested in getting a daily devotional sent to your inbox you can sign up here.
Some sweet friends of mine asked me to post pictures of my Grizwald tree. :) I took some pictures this morning and I will post them in the next day or two. Since I can't have a post without a picture, I thought I would share these with you today. Some of my recent favorites of the girls. Oh man am I blessed!


Have a wonderful Wednesday and stay safe and warm.

It's so true! On Christmas morning...everything comes into perspective with all our loved ones! and the true meaning of Christmas....then we forget all the craziness up to that point :-)

Can't wait to see the tree!

Hi Lisa! I can't wait to see the pictures of your tree. I loved the devotional you had the link for. I used to get The Upper Room at our old church, and really enjoyed it. I love when they make their lesson relate to everyday life. It means so much more to me when they do. Thanks!

I think sometimes we find just what we need when we least expect it. Wonderful message in that devotional. Love your most recent page and tree!
