Six days and counting until Christmas. I have some grocery shopping for Christmas dinner, some gift shopping, some baking, and some wrapping to do. It will be a fun week! Soon school will be done, and the celebrating can begin. In all the busyness, it's so easy to get distracted. We read an Advent book during December. It's encouraging to stop everyday and remember Jesus is why we celebrate. Cambree, my one year old, is learning the Christmas story for the first time. It is so much fun to hear her say the few words of the story she knows. It makes me so happy! I'm sure it makes God happy too. It's a great reminder for me to be in God's Word. The story of Christmas is only part of God's story. He wants us to know His story and His Word. It truly brings joy into our lives.
Don't stop searching for God at this busy time of year. In the midst of wrapping and baking take time to get to know God's story more. It brings really joy and peace. I hope, you enjoy this Christmas of 2012.
