The hubby and I have been on a little mini-vaca (aka recruiting trip for him) staying with our friend whose parents like in Birmingham. It has been SO GREAT just to get away and relax for a few days.
With all the time that I have had to relax and think one topic just keeps popping up. CHRISTMAS. Its so close! Just around the corner :) I cant believe its already here! I am one of those people that often gets caught up with the busy-ness of life and I sometimes forget to slow down and remember what is most important. The true reason for the season. Jesus! The beginning of a true and amazing sacrifice. Its not about all the gifts and all the yummy food (even though those are all fun :)) it is about celebrating God sending down his ONLY son just for us. So this year celebrate his birth! Shine his light, spread the love that he gave to all of us, and just slow down and enjoy yourselves and this special time of year. Lets have a Christmas that we will look back on and smile :)
