How richly God has decked thee!

I can’t believe how quickly Christmas is approaching, can you believe it?  I wrote to one of my friends saying how it seems like Christmas creeps up quicker and quicker each year but it doesn’t come with the same anticipation it held when we were little.  Maybe it’s because I’m not practicing for weeks on end for a Christmas production, or making homemade cards and ornaments, or I’m not scouring the toy cataloge thinking of what to put on my list. I haven’t quite figured out why…

However, even though it creeps up quicker each year, each year I notice I care less and less about the productions and presents, but more about spending time with the friends and family who mean the most to me. It’s about taking that walk in the pouring rain, about calling your dad and laugh about how mom is the most difficult person to find a present for but knowing she’ll love what we get her, about inviting friends over for dinner and polishing off 5 bottles of wine and all giddy with Christmas cheer, about creating the warmth and love that we’ve had all our lives in our own home.

Home is where my friends and family come and gather, and how richly God has decked me with thee!

    Haha Spencer and I were talking about the same thing last year! It’s kinda depressing that the “little kid Christmas spark” disappears a bit! Awesome shots Les! I can’t wait to do my Christmas decorations shots!ReplyCancel
