This is Hubby's current state after a long day at the mall yesterday;-)lol!! I've always told him that shopping was hard work. For it to be a recession, you could not tell it yesterday. The lines were long for checkout and the traffic jams were terrific. I must confess, I broke the law on several occasions.....u-turns...are not legal...right? All in all, he was a trooper and we had a good day. Am I done.....NOT! Will I return to town on a Saturday between now and Christmas....hopefully not;) Shopping is fun, well at least for me it is, don't ask Hubby....he is still recovering, by icing the old shins down.
On a better note......
As I sit here this morning I feel blessed.
I am thankful that we are able to do those things such as shopping; it means we have jobs. Nowadays that is truly a blessing. Mostly, I pray that I will spend the remaining weeks in awe and wonder of what this Christmas season is all about. JESUS!
Blessed that God sent His only Son to be born of a virgin birth, in a manger, so long ago.
Blessed with a peace that surpasses galaxies.
I pray for our service today and for all churches across the world. Now is the time to come together and lend a hand to those in need. Be that light to the world. Be God's hands and feet. Get the Message to all of what Christmas is all about. JESUS!
