Finally my creative juices are starting to flow...I know, I know, a little late for all my Christmas gifts to be homemade, but I am managing to pull some things together. I have a problem with just going out and buying gifts for people off a list. I prefer to think of something on my own that they would LOVE or better yet making something. Since I am getting a late start for this year I have plans to work on a few things during the winter months for next year. I am already soooo excited!!! The bummer part is that I can't post pictures of them b/c certain someones may see them. I am enjoying trying to be a more thoughtful person and am thankful for the Christmas season and that it makes me think of others.
Kurt and I decided to drive around and check out the Christmas lights around town last night. We did our best to make it as "Christmassy" as possible. We dressed warm, got Dunkin Donuts coffee and listened to Christmas music on the radio as we drove around. No snow, BUT a winter weather advisory was in effect. Christmas Lights don't look quite the same without snow on them. We wrapped up the night with a movie while awaiting the news of our friends child's birth. It was a night to remember!
I just got this with birthday money. The words have been such a blessing. There is something about the lyrics in hymns that have such a deep meaning. I love every song and they have been speaking directly to my heart and mind. I come home from work and put it on and it helps to focus my life on the One who cares for me more than I can even imagine. I came across this artist on Pandora. I have the Hymns ones called Roots Run Deep. If anyone is looking for a gift to give someone that can be a blessing as well, I recommend this CD. Check it out!!!
I haven't posted a few days so I am filling in on what has been happening...
