Okay, I'm ready...

I really have not been able to start thinking about Christmas. This may seem early, but I am usually ready the end of October. This year with 13 weeks of unemployment and some other stuff going on it has been really difficult to anticipate all the get togethers. Yesterday, my husband put up the Christmas lights on the house. I returned home from running errands and there they were. I had to smile. I love Christmas lights. They add life to an otherwise dark and dreary evening. To me, they are like the star that led the wise men to the newborn King of Kings. And last evening, the lights led me to the joy of the season. Now, I am ready to celebrate Jesus' birthday and the giving and receiving it brings.
