Sunday Sunshine: Christmas Edition

Practicing contentment by remembering thegraces of the week and practicing gratitude through giving.

Christmas is here.  My life is so full of blessings that are too numerous to count.  The ones that really mean the most during this season are (mostly) the ones that can't be purchased.  

:: The friends who are as close as family and the family who are friends.  Our fall has been filled with these wonderful people and they all mean so much to me.  

:: For our health and our [growing] family.

:: For medical professionals who have great bedside manner and personalities and truly love their work.

:: For a warm house, hot showers and food on the table.

:: For the simplicity of a three-year-old's wonder at the Christmas season.  The tree pictured (although with no snow) is our Christmas tree this year and G proudly tells folks "our Cwissmas twee Ou-SIDE!"  I absolutely love it!  She did point out that it needed a star

:: The flexibility of traditions while children are young.  (Stockings don't HAVE to be opened as soon as you wake up, they can become road trip entertainment!)

:: The JOY that come through contentment during this season that can so easily be overwrought with despair and wants.

Wishing you and yours a very contented, 
JOYFUL Christmas Day!

Every desirable and beneficial gift comes out of heaven. The gifts are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light.” (James 1:16 -The Message) May the light of the Father brighten your week!
