Here I Am
Here I am, blogging for the first time. I've never done this before and I can't honestly say how long it will last but my sweet sister-in-law has been having so much fun with it and then I got hooked reading her blog and some friends from church too, so I thought I should give it a try. Tonight I'm sitting here next to my husband watching Monday night football and just enjoying a quiet evening. Our Christmas tree lights are on and the when I look across the couch at my husband, I smile to myself at the warm, "Christmasy" feeling I have inside. You know, that feeling of total warmth and contentment that seems so prevalent (or in some cases, totally absent) this time of year. Maybe it's because for those of us who live to worship Christ Jesus, His reality is more evident and closer than ever. I made up my mind that I'm going to get up early this Christmas morning and have a little birthday celebration, just Jesus and me, before the day gets started. I'm going to sit in my loft with my keyboard and sing songs, and read my Bible, and give Jesus the best gift I can give Him - my undivided attention and love. The rest of the day will be filled with laughter, and love, and family but that first quiet moment in the morning will be His alone. I can't wait.
