As I sit here and reflect on Christmas we have much to be thankful for. The blessings of family and friends. Yes like most of you we have our own mountains and valleys we must go through but with each we try to learn from them and build a character that one day will be pleasing to our Lord.
Family and friends are my richest assest here on this earth. I enjoy life even through the trials. The parents God chose for me, the sisters who still fill my life with laughter, a husband that sees me on my good days as well as those that aren't so good and yet is always there no matter what. My children who I adore and a grandson who brings the sunshine into my everyday! Family it's sacred! Friends near and far some I've met, some I've never seen yet they are all so dear.
I think about Mary as she held Jesus in her arms and pondered about this wee lil' one. She held the very son of God in her arms. She was such a young girl with a heart for the Lord. The chosen earthly parents for Jesus. How very blessed Mary and Joseph must have felt.
As the days of December are quickly going I want to wish all of you the Merriest of Christmas' and may you remember just how dear your family and friends are to you and the true meaning of Christmas.
Happy Trails to You Until We Meet Again......Ginger
