I'm Not Ready!

I'm just not ready to start getting ready for Christmas!

Can I please have at least one more week of Autumn?!!!

I was looking at this Fall arrangement on my kitchen table and felt anxious about the fact that I should be storing away the Autumn decorations and putting out the Christmas decorations and suddenly I read the scripture on the bottom of the table topper. That's what I want.... peace.

If you look closely on the table topper in this picture you will see this scripture: You will keep in perfect peace, him whose mind is steadfast because he trusts in You, Isiah 26:3.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving and weekend!

Hi Debbie,
I am keeping Christmas real simple this year. I am not going to do much preparing. Just a few decorations.

Hi Deb,

I have missed your blogs! What with your trip and limited blogs since returning!!!

Folks seem to start Christmas decorating way too early for me. So, I wait a bit. After all, Advent has just begun, and Christmas is 25 days away. Advent helps us keep it all in perspective. So, take your time.

Love you,

Ready or not, sister.... Christmas is coming. :D I packed up my fall things today... got my tree decorated (first time in a couple of years!) ... decorated the mantle... going to Hobby Lobby tomorrow to buy fresh ribbon and few little things... and I'll be done. I think because I'm only working part time now, I am looking forward to Christmas...more time on my hands now. I keep asking myself "how can I make this Christmas special for everyone?"
