2. Speaking of encouragement, a wonderful man in our church came up to me last Sunday and asked me "What can we do for your family?" Can I tell you how I rode on that all week? Those words, the knowing that he was thinking of us, helped me through the tough parts of the week. (And believe me, there were a lot of tough parts this week.)
3. Done with Christmas shopping. I always try to find the right balance each year of shunning consumerism but yet embracing the gift giving. I think it will always be a work in process and I'm ok with that. So thankful forAnn Voskamp's free Jesse Tree devotional. We have done it the past 2 years and it has been so wonderful keeping our perspective where it should be this Advent season.
4. This week, I really liked this post on staying positive. Just some real good practical help for mamas.5. What's your favorite Christmas cookie? We like this one
Happy weekend everyone!
