The List that Never Ends: #81-95

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.... we had a busy few days of celebrating, and a few late nights/early mornings of wrapping, finishing up gifts, and cleaning; which is why I have been MIA here in bloggyland.

Here are some of the highlights....which are also the blessings I'm counting this week:

81. White Christmases

82. Singing Christmas Carols around the tree with family...

83. Wonderful grandparents who are still here, healthy, and have a sense of humor. :o)

84. Togetherness....for a little while at least!

85. Boys who are boys...

86. A nephew who is developing a love for all things Narnian...

87. Watching my brother check off something on his "Bucket List." (i.e.: sampling "Turkish Delight" - the candy Edmund requested from the White Witch in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis. For the record, I wouldn't sell Mr. Tumnus or my family out for it! Imagine a powdered sugar covered gum drop that tastes like rose perfume - that's about what it's like.)

88. Getting to see some family members that we don't get to see too often...

89. Getting to watch my niece and nephew demonstrate the wrestling move they developed and perfected, "The Flying Pig."

90.. A snowy evening in front of a fire with my best friend to whom I am, conveniently, also married. 

91. A little cousin's first Christmas:

92. Sweet little moments...

93. Watching my in-laws have a ping-pong ball duel!

94. Delicious meals, shared with family...

95. The Reason for all of it....

Happy Birthday, Jesus...

The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined... For unto us a child is born , unto us a son is given : and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor , The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
Isaiah 9:2, 6-7

Wishing you the Light of Christ
to guide your steps
in 2011...

  1. Stopping by from Location Central blog/Tennessee.. XOXOXO!!

  2. Hey, I am checking this blog using the phone and this appears to be kind of odd. Thought you'd wish to know. This is a great write-up nevertheless, did not mess that up.
