We are in the midst of preparation for a holiday trip. Always it seems the business before we go is accelerated in the last days before we go. My daughter had another piano recital. We nearly missed it over some confusion about where it was being held but she walked in there and literally just sat down and played beautifully. She absolutely never lets us down. Next a long time family friend got married in our little church. It was so beautiful in there…people really came together to prepare it all and it was stunning. Last but absolutely not least Lovely and I celebrated our 20th anniversary on the 17th. I’ve been trolling a jewelry site for some time and finally found exactly what I wanted for us. In reflection before our trip I now more than ever realize I couldn’t do it without Jesus Christ. All the dust of life will settle…he will eternally remain. Never forget the reason for the season my friends.

It’s true, no matter how alone you feel. I’ve been physically alone many times…also alone in a crowd. Often enough solitude is a state of mind. sometimes it’s a choice…sometimes it’s not. Many fear solitude. Today is dim and dreary and the temptation is to feel lonelybut I figure if I’m going to be alone with my thoughts I should make those thoughts positive thoughts. Thinking of this I’m reminded of Matthew 28: 20 – …And lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” Amen. Thank God for that!

It’s been a longer lasting snow this time. I am not a fan of winter but it really is beautiful out there. We’re supposed to hit the forties now. I won’t miss the grey skies one bit. The sapphire blue is my personal favorite. I love contrasting colorsand the blue really brings this out…as does our favorite evergreen tree. The temperatures were perfect for the snow to stick to branches recentlybut now the warmer weather is approaching making winter look much more barren.
