Not to Worry! There's Still Time!

I want to thank you lovely ladies who have written words of love and encouragement to me.  I find that God's love is abounding to our family in this season.  Today we had a lovely light snow.  It was just enough to cheer me.

We have about two weeks to prepare for Christmas.  I've not made nor bought a gift, save a couple of stocking stuffers and gifts for our pastors.  So much for being prepared early. ~grin~

Not to worry though.  There's still time to bake gingerbread and sugar cookies, pumpkin bread and pies, fudge and peanut brittle... still time for Christmas movies and Christmas stories... still time for our Advent wreath and The Advent Book... still time to buy gifts for those I love and perhaps even time to make a few small things.

I will put on my favorite Christmas music, make some tea, and start making a list and checking it twice!  My dear husband has promised me lunch out today.  Perhaps he will help me to think through those things that we really want to enjoy in this season. 

May God bless you as you celebrate Christmas!

  8. Hi Deb,
    I'm such a do it early person when it comes to Christmas preparations. Since I'm so behind this year, I needed to remind myself and anyone like me, that there is indeed time for all the important things.
    I'm honored that you took time to talk back. :)
    I'll be over for a visit in a few minutes.
    Blessings to you!
