There were many Christmas's where we shoved as many gifts under the tree as possible thinking what the kids got and how much they got is what made it a good Christmas.... gosh how horribly wrong I have been... the last few years have been very simple but special - special because we have focused on what's important - and that is the birth of our savior Jesus Christ. I am so thankful to have a loving God - who has blessed me with a wonderful life with a beautiful family, great friends and so much more!!! My husband spoiled me rotten with a few things... which is was very tearful specially since he and I have for years not exchanged gifts.... for mostly monetary reasons ~ He got me 2 new charms for my James Avery bracelet one was the Let go Let God charm and the other one was the tiny angel charm :) he said both were things I needed to keep close to my heart and mind... and he is right Let Go and Let God take control of everything and remember he has sent Guardian Angels to watch over us. My heart smiles for this man, if some of you knew the trials and tribulations we have tried to overcome in so many years but never were any of those attempts successful until we surrendered them to our God and realized the more we tried to control everything the more we lost control and messed them up in the process even more so.
Christmas brings hope and new life. What do you TRULY hope for this coming year, something my husband brought home to me a few weeks ago from Mens Fraternity... sometimes you have to die a little to live a lot - and to that I say AMEN - Merry Christmas everyone.
