What I thought last week was going to be a crazy mixed up Christmas has turned out to be quite a blessing. We will have about 10 people here tomorrow. People that I have not shared Christmas with for many years, and they are family.

I talked to Mom today and she is not doing too well and I tried to take her shopping but that did not work. Some days she is good and others she is not. Yesterday when it was so warm, she went out and took the Christmas lights off of her deck. When Dennis went over there latter that night to plug them in he found them piled up on a chair on the deck. So latter today after we got home from shopping I asked her if it was ok if I put them back. She could not tell me why she took them off, bless her heart.

I so look forward to everyone being here tomorrow and I think that the Lord had a plan and I need to learn to be still and watch what HE is doing. I learned a good lesson this week. We celebrate the Christ each day of our lives and weather it be on December 25th or the 28th or what ever day we gather to rejoice in HIS birth ......... it matters not.......I so wish that all my family would be here, I pray that each of the other two siblings would find in their hearts peace and love and joy in the Lord. I wish that we could all be together as when we were children. I do not know how or when the Lord will heal the brokenness in our family but I will believe.

I will post some pictures on Monday I hope, we might be helping a cousin move so I am not sure what Monday will bring, but this one thing I know.......... He is always in control and HE has a plan for our lives and each day that we allow HIM, HE will lead.

So I leave you with this: If you must follow the stars; be a wise man.........................

Hugs !

My dear...that's sad about your mom, but I must say that I went through the same thing with my mother years ago. The one thing she remembered well, and never ceased knowing was Bud!! She always recognized him and knew who he was. It's simply boggling how the mind of the aged works.

I hope you have a wonderful time with your family.

I can remember sharing Christmas with my cousin's and how fun it was then..to go back into childhood days would be fun for the most part. you know it's funny you wrote how we should celebrate Christ's birthday everyday, I was thinking the same thing just yesterday...and yes the Lord will heal the brokenness of your siblings heart, but like you said "He's in control" and it's all in his plan. I will have to e~mail you something about that....I use to read my horiscope every morning until one day someone said"Only God knows what kind of day you'll have, not some stranger" and I thought about for awhile and I no longer follow those "star's" so I hope I am a wise man. May God be with you and your family and I hope all can feel his sweet loving presence.
Hugs to you

It can be hard finding a new dentist. If you need cosmetic dentistry before and after then this is where you should turn.
