a small tidbit of our christmas so far.
it's been different, but good.
we went sledding yesterday afternoon (my limbs are paying for it now). i got a couple of letters/cards in the mail. we had a simple supper, played a couple of christmas songs, and i shared some bible verses. we opened gifts together - our little "big" family. my parents gave me a kindle and some lovely pajamas. this morning we opened stockings and i got some socks & hair things and some candy and an itunes gift card (the hobbit soundtrack, here i come!) we've been hanging out together and we're watching a charlie brown christmas (for the first time in my life).
there's so much more i could share... but, like, wow. this christmas the Lord has really been teaching me that even if it doesn't "feel" the same, christmas is always about the same thing - the redemption of our broken lives by Jesus. 2012 has been such a great year (i'm planning a vlog later this week to talk about it a little bit.)
have a lovely holiday, friends.
