Its been a very hectic few weeks in our house, I had to work this week and am thankful for the snow day we have today, lol.. I am not used to working full days and my poor body is thankful for the break today.Christmas is approaching fast, I can’t believe we are only 4 sleeps away. crazy how this year has gone by so very fast. The nice part is that I dont have to worry about anymore appointment till the new year..YAHH. It’s a nice break for us, BUT my calendar is filling up already with LOTS off appointments, I have to go for some more tests to see whats going on with my bladder, and to see someone about this cyst I finally got the appointment 🙂
But with Christmas coming our house is full of so much ANXIETY. I LOVE Christmas, but the anxiety the kids have is so awful, I feel so bad for them, poor Tyler has not been able to sleep he is just so excited. Behaviours are coming out as they are just so excited.
But I want to take a moment and say although we are going through stuff at this time of year, I can’t begin to imagine how the parents and families are going through from the shooting in CT. So sad, awful for something like this to happen. This Christmas lets take the time and think about all these people and the loss they have had, I am going to leave you with a poem someone sent me.No one can make sense of all this, I received this in an e-mail and had to share 🙂
Twas’ 11 days before Christmas, around 9:38
when 20 beautiful children stormed through heaven’s gate.
Their smiles were contagious, their laughter filled the air.
They could hardly believe all the beauty they saw there.
They were filled with such joy, they didn’t know what to say.
They remembered nothing of what had happened earlier that day.
“Where are we?” asked a little girl, as quiet as a mouse.
“This is heaven.” declared a small boy. “We’re spending Christmas at God’s house.”
When what to their wondering eyes did appear,
but Jesus, their savior, the children gathered near.
He looked at them and smiled, and they smiled just the same.
Then He opened His arms and He called them by name.
And in that moment was joy, that only heaven can bring,
those children all flew into the arms of their King.
And as they lingered in the warmth of His embrace,
one small girl turned and looked at Jesus’ face.
And as if He could read all the questions she had
He gently whispered to her, “I’ll take care of mom and dad.”
Then He looked down on earth, the world far below
He saw all of the hurt, the sorrow, and woe.
Then He closed His eyes and He outstretched His hand,
“Let My power and presence re-enter this land!”
“May this country be delivered from the hands of fools”
“I’m taking back my nation. I’m taking back my schools!”
Then He and the children stood up without a sound.
“Come now my children, let me show you around.”
Excitement filled the space, some skipped and some ran.
All displaying enthusiasm that only a small child can.
And i heard Him proclaim as He walked out of sight,
“In the midst of this darkness, I AM STILL THE LIGHT.”
