Currently ListeningChristmas Eve and Other StoriesBy Trans-Siberian Orchestrasee related

I have a brief moment . . . we're getting ready to go grocery shopping, and I'm finished, but Jocelyn's not. Hmmm . . . perhaps I have longer than a brief moment! :)

Thanksgiving was wonderful. I adore this season. There's so much emphasis on family, and giving, and thankfulness -- on praise and heartfelt worship. I am such a blessed person.

We kicked off the season with It's a Wonderful Life and The Santa Clause. Two of my all-time favorites! I have to decide what I want to watch next! Probably the classic, A Christmas Story. :)

We're up to our eyeballs in leftovers. I really enjoy that, too! Less cooking time for the rest of the week! You just have to be creative in your meal planning! Chicken packets become turkey packets and chicken spaghetti becomes turkey spaghetti! Fun stuff, it is.

I'm off. No, Jocelyn's not ready, but I got to keep moving!

Currently ReadingFeathers from My Nest: A Mother's ReflectionsBy Beth Mooresee related

I'm just updating so that I'm more current than my dahling daughter. :)

We are, once again, headed to Blue Mountain! Whoohoo! What a wonderful time of prayer the women of our church had this morning. Something about a group of women humbling themselves at the altar is incredibly moving. Or perhaps, it's the Holy Spirit's movement that causes women to gather at the altar in humble prayer. It was sweet, that's for certain. The temptation, now, is to look ahead and be excited about what's going to take place and all that God's is going to do. I need to focus on what He's doing right now, and be excited about *that*! Lord, open my eyes that I may see . . . Okay, then there's the flesh side of me that is ready to holler: ROLL TIDE!!!

Buenos tardes!

Currently Listening God of Wonders, Vol. 1 By Various Artists see related
This morning we will head to BMC for an ADVENTURE! Adventures in formal dinners and table settings. It occurs to me, unfortunately it slips away nearly as quickly. That saying, 'a mind is a terrible thing to lose,' is so true. It's a good thing Jocelyn had me *write* a list of things I needed to bring for her. I need that physical reminder. Now if I could just remember where I put that list. Hehe. I believe I have everything set and ready to go!
I think this morning will be a hazelnut coffee morning, with a side of sinus pills!
Todd & I watched, Left Behind: War of Worlds, last night. It was pretty good. I can't remember the written series, so I have no clue how close it actually followed the books (if at all), but I thought they did a great job. Lou Gossett, Jr. (sp?), was pretty darn good.
I was pondering on this the other day -- the song, God of Wonders. Well, I had garbled the lyrics, and instead of 'God of wonders, beyond our galaxy', I was singing, 'God of wonders beyond our imaginings.' After mulling this over, I've decided it was a Godspiration. I can look back over my life and see the wonders He has performed in it; and I know His was are not my ways, so it stands to reason He is a God of wonders I can't even begin to imagine. What an awesome, holy, and mighty God I serve!

Currently Listening Worship By Michael W. Smith see related

Ummm, I've been busy?

Good gravy it amazes me how fast life goes! God is WORKING! I get to go to BMC this weekend and see my girl. We do so enjoy formal dinners -- they're so much fun! *Plus* I get the added bonus of getting to meet some of Jocey's new friends. My friend/boss is in Romania on a mission trip for the next two weeks. I'm working fulltime to help cover her absence. It's my contribution to her trip (well, that and my prayers, which are actually the bigger contribution)! What am I doing? My two seconds in Xanga-land are up!



Ummmm . . . I found another second. Can someone please tell me what the purpose of a blogring is? *Please!*
