The shepherds are such a fun geoup of guys! One minute they are “sore afraid” and the next minute they were saying “Let’s go see this King!”. They didn’t even hesitate, they were all in. Listen in as we continue to look for Jesus this Christmas season.
Sometimes we blow it big time. I imagine the innkeeper in Luke 2 felt that way. The King of the world could have been born in his inn and yet he told them he didn’t have room. But God always has a plan … and works the plan in spite of us. Listen in …
When we moved into our current house we began packing for the move as we packed up our Christmas stuff from the previous year. My husband wanted to make sure we didn’t lose the baby Jesus that went in our nativity scene so he packed it up in some tissue paper and hid it so well that we couldn’t find it for two or three years. We searched EVERYWHERE. At some point I told Bill … “maybe that’s the point, maybe we are supposed to keep looking for Jesus”.
I’ve made some videos called “Five Seconds of Christmas” to help us (me) look for Jesus throughout this BUSY holiday season. Things get so busy and so crazy .. and we need to intentionally make time (look for) for Him. Today we start with Mary. If the video isn’t showing you can access it here: https://youtu.be/U18Q2v9jh4M
My goodness! Where does the time go? One minute I was blogging and the next minute I was trying to remember what my password was because it had been so long since I had last posted. I don’t have any kind of explanation for where I’ve been except … life.
As they say …. life happens. 7th grade football season came and went and Jacob has now moved on to basketball. We made a few college visits with Brittany and watched her swim in some swim meets. We’ve been to Austin to see Caroline and had her here twice (briefly!) as she interviewed for summer internships (she got one!!). Savannah is always busy doing something new and had her first guitar lesson tonight. We went to Arkansas for Thanksgiving which was a blast and believe it or not Bill just told me today that I had logged more airline miles than him this year going to speaking events.
So yes, life. Grateful and enjoying each moment.
I did want to touch base quickly because starting tomorrow is “5 Seconds of Christmas” which I will be posting throughout December. That reminded me that I never posted “5 Seconds of Fall”. There was only one video called “Palms Up” and you can view it here:
More blogs to follow. Hope you will follow along with “5 Seconds of Christmas” as we “Look for Jesus”.
