65 Day Journey

Day 54

I am so tried today.
I really think all this hustle and bustle is catching up with me.

I have a very full day today.
In fact the rest of this week is crazy full.
Praying I will be able to get my blog post up for the challenges.


I will get a little closer to having Christmas ready.
I will put together a few care packages to give a little hope to those that feel there is none.
Just for today I will let sing a song of Happy Birthday to a precious little granddaughter!
Outside my window...

It is foggy and a bit chilly.
With no possibility of seeing the sun!

I am thinking...

I wish I could be near my children and grandchildren.
As my youngest granddaughter turns five today.
I would love to be with her to celebrate her and the day the Lord blessed us with her.
Happy Birthday Rylee!

I am thankful...

For friends that are traveling to spend time with me through the Christmas and New Year season.
For the love of my family.
The little things like smiles from strangers as you walk by.
The hello that lifts your spirits. 
From the learning rooms...(if this applies)

That when it is Christmas week don't plan on getting any where or getting anything done in a hurry. As everyone is out and the traffic is crazy lines are long.
No one has courtesy .
So put on your happy face and pass out some of Jesus love.
Many need it this week before Christmas.

In the kitchen...

Dishes washed.
Dinner cooked and Lemon bars sitting on counter.

I am wearing...

Blue Jeans.
Brown boots
Red long sleeved top and a grey sweater with hood fake fur around the hood.

I am creating...

Working on a needle point when I have spare time to get a few stitches in.

I am going...

To Down town Portland today to pick up my girlfriend from the train depot.

I am wondering...

Where does all this traffic come from the week before Christmas.
You never see this any other time.

I am reading...

I'm actually still working on the two books that I haven't been able to pick up and read with such a full plate .
I fall asleep with book in my hand. Not remembering what the last words were that I had read.

I am hoping...

That I will sleep well this evening.

I am looking forward to...

To the visit with my girlfriend from Klammath. The Nutcracker on Friday evening and a host of other activities that are planned.

I am hearing...

Two TV sets playing two different stations.
The giggles of  hubby and my girlfriend visiting.

Around the house...
The lights of Christmas shine.
With a few more items to wrap up.
Along with pulling together a few special packages to help brighten someones Christmas this year.
I am praying

That I will get some rest.
That my work will pick up so I can meet my household and finical needs.
That my daughters will have a blessed and wonderful Christmas.
That they will get along.
Amber find a car and that Heather would have more work. That Amber would get a job in the profession that she study and worked so hard to get..
For my youngest daughter and her family to have a wonderful Christmas as well.

I am pondering...

The state of affairs and how some of the things in our world will effect me personally in 2012.

One of my favorite things...

Wishing my grandchildren a Happy Birthday!
Telling them how much I love them and how special they are.

A few plans for the rest of the week:

Cleaning around the house
Finish up shopping for Christmas dinner
The nutcracker
Christmas lights
Just to mention a few things for the rest of the week.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
(add your picture here)

Matthew 19:13-15
Then little children were brought to Him that He might put His hands on them and pray, but the disciples rebukes them. But Jesus said, "Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven." And He laid His hands on them and departed from there.
Devotional Card
O God of all comfort, bring quietness and calm to hearts worried about what the day may bring.
Matthew 11:28
"Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
Do you find yourself feeling tried and rundown the closer it gets to Christmas?
