So, I'm a little late to the punch. It's Wednesday after all, and Multitude Monday generally posts on Monday. Not to mention the fact that it's the 5th of January, and I'm just now getting a few Christmas thoughts online. Yep, I'm running late but hoping beyond hope that it won't be a trend that'll continue for the rest of 2011!!
As for getting back online... it has indeed taken a little longer than I originally thought. Needless to say, getting back in to our northern Virginia groove did not happen overnight. Quite the opposite, in fact. Regaining our momentum, truth be told, is proving to be a gradual sort of thing... an almost, but not quite, slow-as-molasses sort of thing. Because 1) returning to our studies and 2) facing the deadlines that await us... do not appeal to any of us. In any way, shape, or form. At all. Of course, a wonderful Christmas and a fabulous New Year didn't set the stage well for such things. On the contrary, they only made us long for vacation all the more. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end (or at least so I'm told), so school is resuming and projects are coming due and our life pace is changing once again. Hopefully, it'll slowwwwwww down as rest is a must and sleep-- even better. And everything else... well, it'll fall right back in to place. I hope.
So with that I'll add another page to my journal,
my account of God's goodness and faithfulness and grace... every single day.
This go round, I'm praising Him for Christmas (#917)...
and the birth of our Lord and Savior, 2000 years ago.
"It is good to praise the LORD and music to your name, O Most High,
proclaiming your love in the morning
and your faithfulness at night,
to the music of the ten-stringed lyre and the melody of the harp.
For you make me glad by your deeds, LORD;
I sing for joy at what your hands have done."
Psalm 92: 1-4
Christmas in the woods
with my hubby and my Mom and my Dad and Great Grandma
and my 4 favorite munchkins in all the land~
... Jesus Christ
"In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men."
and the list continues...
