Merry Christmas

I've watched this twice now and can't get through it without tears on my face. THIS is why we celebrate Christmas, the greatest gift one could ever receive. Not only did Jesus give us the gift of Himself, but Mary willingly followed the will of God knowing, I think, that her child would be scorned, ridiculed, rejected and murdered. Our Heavenly Father, in whose image we were created, and a Mother, just like us, gave up their only child for me. And for you.

A Most Blessed and Joyous Christmas to all of us. May I always remember the sacrifice that was made for me, not just in December.

I've been loved unconditionally by the same man for over 25 years.

I have a warm house in which to live, albeit, it's cluttered and disorganized, but I also have the mind that is able to know that it's cluttered and disorganized. That is a huge blessing.

I have three daughters, a son-in-law and two grandchildren (with one on the way) who I love deeply and who love me.

I have a warm, friendly, loving relationship with my four brothers and sisters and their spouses and families.

I still have my parents to talk to, unlike many people my age.

I still have my Grandma, almost unheard of with just about everyone I know.

We have plenty . . . we have more than plenty.

Our granddaughter lives with us, as does our daughter.

We are all healthy.

I have chickens!

I am free.

I have a Lord who loved me so much that He took all of my imperfections and wrongs and took them upon Himself so that I could live with Him in His house when I leave this world.

Counting Your Blessings

Katie and I are watching some more good Christmas movies. Here's another favorite from 1954.

I will add some of my blessings in a future post.
