Where Did The Christmas Decorations Disappear Too

   Now, I don't know if you are like me, but when I was in my twenties and thirties I was a Christmas decorating fanatic.  Even with boxes upon boxes of decorations,  I could not pass a Christmas store without buying something.  Currently, I am in a self imposed ban from buying anything that has bright lights or has the colors of red and green.
   Since I have hit my, lets just say forty something, I have to admit that I have not decorated like I had in the past.  But recently, I have wanted to try to get back my fanatic decorating spirit.  Especially since I realize how fast times flies as my little boy, as I still like to refer to him, strolls into his teenage years.  It dawned on me recently, that he had never seen most of the decorations I have stored in the large containers in the basement.
   So this year, I have made the decision to decorate the entire house .  Christmas dishes will be brought out, decorated trees in every room, lighted houses taken out of their boxes and strategically placed throughout the house.  My electric bill should go through the roof!
The bathroom will smell of cranberries.  While red and green towels will replace the sage and tan ones now hanging.  The kitchen will smell of gingerbread and Christmas cookies baking.  I can picture it now.  Oh, I just hope I have the energy to actually do it.

If you looking for a Christimas gift, The Christmas Answer is available at Amazon, Barnes and Nobel, Prism Book Group website and other e book retail stores.

                                             HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!


Aha, the turkey, cranberries, and pumpkin pies, this is usually the meal most Americans stuff themselves with on this annual November holiday.

But do most of us really stop and acknowledge what the day really means?

Thankful is defined by Webster's Dictionary as a feeling or expressing gratitude or appreciation.

If only we took the word and applied it to everyday living, not just on Thanksgiving Day.  Imagine what the outcome would be.

Thankful for family and friends.

Thankful that we live in the United States of America.

Thankful for the military men and women that our willing to sacrifice their lives to protect us.

Thankful that we have a Savior that died on the cross for each one of us.

We may face trials in the upcoming year, personally and as a country, but with prayer, perseverance, and thankfulness we can overcome.
