I love everything about Christmas: decorating the tree, singing Christmas carols, drinking hot chocolate, looking at Christmas lights, baking treats to share with friends and family and moving the mouse on our family Christmas countdown. Every year there is anticipation at Christmas. For many we anticipate the traditions or the actual gifts under the tree. more »

What We All Want for Christmas

We all have our tales of surviving another family holiday.

For Those Who Feel Thankless…

“Practicing gratitude is worship,” Dad said, from five states away while I silently made another wrong turn in my new city. Speaking of frustrating things like driving incompetence, have you ever scrolled through Facebook on a November day and become upset by those grateful people? You know the ones I’m talking about – three things more »

“Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his more »
