88 days til Christmas


It might be 88 days until December 25, but we are having our family Christmas at Thanksgiving this year.  

Which means 49 days until Christmas.

Which means 49 days to make a stocking for the newest family member.

Which means I need to spend some time in the basement unpacking and unearthing my sewing supplies.

But first, a review of today's Bible study lesson.  John 1.

"In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God."

Ancient, mysterious words full of meaning and truth.  It is a delight to ponder these words and discuss them with a group of beautiful, godly women.  We meet to study God's word each Thursday afternoon.  How I look forward to this time!

Staying grounded in these truths will help us not corrupt the true meaning of Christmas.  

And each stitch in this stocking will represent a prayer for this newest little grandson of ours who is expected to arrive after Thanksgiving and before Christmas.

The most wonderful time of the year!
