II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Christmas Vacation

Hooray! For the next four days....Matt gets to hang out with us instead of go to work! We are all so glad to have him back home, but probably not anymore happy than he is to actually BE home. As he mentioned, it's been nearly 2 full weeks since he's seen our house in the daylight. He was leaving while it was dark and coming home after it was dark every day. (Thankfully they finally have everyone's power back on from the ice storm that hit on Dec. 9th)
Even though it's exciting that Christmas is almost here..I feel kinda bad for him that his 4 days off are going to be jam-packed with things to do, places to go and people to entertain. From the moment we wake up tomorrow morning until the moment we go to bed Christmas night, we will be with other people. It's probably not going to be too relaxing for him...but at least it won't be boring!
So, I am writing this post to say that you probably won't hear from me again for a little while...at least 4 days anyway! he he
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and that you make the most of every precious moment you get to spend with your families. Overlook your differences and the irritating things they say and do and cherish this time together. God chose these people especially for you...to be in your life...so find ways to enjoy them and see the positive, not the negative. Pull out your rose-colored glasses. Just imagine all God has to look past to see the good in us...but He does!
Merry Christmas to each of you! Happy Birthday Jesus!

Thanks for the family insight. Need that. Praying for an enjoyable time for you and your family as you celebrate the birth of Jesus. So glad that you get to enjoy it with the hubby knowing that the power is back on. I've enjoyed getting to know you and look forward to more.
