How Precious…

… are our loved ones.

My family means so very much to me. My husband and two kids and I are very, very close. Even closer, I think because of all the circumstances we have been through. Have we made mistakes? Oh my yes! Have I made mistakes? Wow, you just don’t even want to know… :) Again, I digress…

We have the wonderful privilege this year of having family come for Christmas. We actually don’t get the opportunity to see family very often. You see, we’re from the South and ALL of our family is in the south – but, our daughter can’t live in the south. It’s also really dangerous for her to travel to the “hot” states and definitely not recommended. Travel is also very expensive and we live a long way away from all of them! (We lived in Alaska for several years, and it was positively …

Fun, Fun

An old friend has this on her blog – (hey, Michele, I’m not calling you “old” – just that we’ve known each other a loooooooooooooooooooong time) lol

It was a lot of fun – so I thought I’d share :)

Can anyone guess about the outdoor part? Of course, the quiz doesn’t know us – but our house is REALLY cold :)

Merry Christmas!

Frosty the Snowman
For you, every day is worth celebrating, because it’s finally winter! You spend as much time as possible outdoors with your friends. You’ll take cold, snowy air over a stuffy, overheated building anytime. (Could someone please turn that thermostat down?) Since you like the cold, you don’t always bother to bundle up, but you look great in winter accessories like scarves and hats.

Some people spend all winter complaining about the temperature, but not you. You’re equally happy whether you’re ice cold or steamy …

29,000 pages and counting

I think you all should know that I love to read. Well, that has been passed on to both of my children :) . My husband, bless his heart – teases us about all our “reading” – and every time we have moved (which has been many times in the past 16 years of marriage) he talks about all the boxes of books and music. (I should give a prize if someone could actually guess how many, but, I’m rabbit trail-ing…)

Anyway, yesterday was report-card day here. And we keep track of everything for school – even the amount of pages that the kids read each quarter. :) (Those of you who know us really well, are probably laughing now…you know where I’m going…) And I give awards for how many pages they have read. This quarter has been … different to say the least, we’ve had a little extra excitement (a …

Hope

Think about what Christmas really means to you. (You keep thinking, we’ll get back to your answer in a minute.)

This past weekend, I hosted a Christmas party for our local ACFW group. We had an incredible time of fellowship and fun together and at the end, we sat around and talked about this very topic. Christmas is so very special and precious to me. I love to decorate for it (in fact for years, I’ve had a Christmas tree and nativity scene in every room, even the bathrooms- okay so tell me I’m nuts), I love the music, the time together as a family and I love celebrating the Greatest Gift of all coming to earth for you and for me. It bugs me when people say “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas”. Why did we start taking Christ out of Christmas? Why are we Christians, letting it happen?…

More Cool Stuff about the Show…

We are so blessed. I keep saying that, and I mean it.

The FedEx guy just dropped off another package… from people who don’t even know us, but, care so deeply and so much. I’m amazed yet again, at the love within the body of Christ.

In this package, there is a scrapbook- full of notes and pictures from David Phelps’ message boards. People who have prayed and given and loved. I cried. Yes, a lot.

I don’t know if any of them will read this, but THANK YOU. You have blessed our family in an incredible way.

Please watch EMHE on January 13th. There’s only so much I’m allowed to say – so please watch the show :)

In Him Who is Almighty God,
Kim…
