I truly cannot believe it is already December and time to decorate the house for Christmas! We had to rearrange some furniture to make room for the tree and many nativity scenes I have collected over the years. One morning my advent devotion was about letting every heart prepare HIM room. It was a great reminder that many times our hearts are so cluttered that we don’t have room for Jesus at one of the most precious times of the year. Just like I had to rearrange my home a bit, I evaluated my heart and asked The Lord to de-clutter my soul and be sure He is more than welcome to every part of my life.
We don’t buy a real tree anymore because I think I’m allergic or something, so we do go but a wreath at a local nursery.
We have already made a batch of cut out sugar cookies. The kids always love that. It always makes me think of The Koester family. Mary was always so patient with all the kids while we did this at her house.
And lest I forget, Molly had her fourth and very successful babysitting job. This little boy was happy to be playing and would let her know if he was being smothered. I continue to remind Molly that her main goal is for happy and safe babies! She gets perturbed when all they want to do is follow Mack around or laugh at him. She wants a newborn to hold and feed and hold some more. 🙂 She is sweet.
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! May every heart prepare Him room. He is so worthy.
