I know...Christmas...we haven't even celebrated Thanksgiving. I am not one of those people who can wait until the last minute to do anything. I have to plan and make lists, you know, the anal thing. Now that I have acquired a ready made family, I have been thinking about the upcoming holiday season and gift giving. I have never had children of my own so having two very special young men in my life is a treat. I have been racking my brain with the wee knowledge I have of their likes and dislikes to come up with the coolest present ever. I have ordered and received some things but am ever looking for just that thing that will make them glow and therefore me glow too. It's just too much fun. Thank you God for their presence in my life. And the man in my life...I would give him the moon if I knew how to wrap it (and thought that he would want it). I am ever thankful to God for putting him in my life. He is exactly what I have prayed for. Exactly.
I have also been thinking about Him a lot lately. God. How patient He is and how much I am trying that patience. How much He has given me and how little I give Him lately. I've been asked what I want for Christmas and can't think of a single material item that would put a glow in my life. What I really want is the glow that only God can give when you are serving Him and being close to Him. I really want to get close to Him again, like I was. I really want to get back in regular corporate worship. I miss it. So I guess that is what I want for Christmas. I want to corporately and publicly and regularly be in the Presence of God. I want to show Him how much I appreciate all the blessings that He has put in my life lately. I have never been happier in my whole life.
