I don't know if it is just me, or if everyone
feels the excitement of the holiday season
like I do this year!!!

I am so ready for for it, and just
want to savor

 every. single. second.

We have had some "stuff" shall we say, to
adjust to recently, and it has just made me
appreciate all of my blessings even more!
{especially knowing that God will take care
of our "stuff"}

What about you?

Where is your heart this holiday season?

I hope you are ready to drink it all in...
soak it all up....and bathe your soul in
the goodness of it all!
{even though you may have "stuff", too}

I am praying for everyone that reads this
post, and want you to know that my heart is
with all of you who may be hurting and struggling through this year. 

May you know the mercy, love, joy, and peace of God this holiday season.

Love and Joy to You,

Love and joy to you also Becky! I have a little "stuff" I am going through but with the grace of God I will get through it. Keeping a positive attitude helps along with family and friends for support. Take time to breathe and enjoy life!
I love your bottle brush wreath!

What a sweet post! Our family is in a similar spot, Becky.. and it feels so different this year. We are so blessed and I can't stop singing Amy Grant's song "A Christmas to Remember." And you're right and good to remember the hurting and sad.. I was inspired to make a "Blessings Tree" in hopes of encouraging those who see it. Your piece is so so lovely. Thank you so much for sharing!

Blessings and a very Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

Happy Thanksgiving, Becky! Hoping all the "stuff" works itself out. I feel like I am going through my own "stuff" at the moment.

Keep eyes focused on Him is only answer.

I'm not ready to decorate but I'm also not prostrate on the floor. It's a gift and I am grateful.

Becky, what an encouraging post. The holidays are hard sometimes for us all. I always try to consider that when in a store and the cashier is not nice. I love your little white wreath.

It's nice to be in a *good* place in my life this year compared to the past couple after losing my hubby! I am truly enjoying everything about this season and taking time to reflect on all the blessings that God has filled my life with. Praying for your family this year as you face challenges, believing that God Will work them out!! Blessings, Cindy

Hi Becky, I am so not ready for the holidays this year. I lost my husband this past July and the holidays just won't be the same without him ... and never will be. I wish you and your family the best during this holiday time and that your "stuff" gets worked out. **hugs** diane @ thoughts and shots
