Today we celebrate. We celebrate with gifts and tinsel and good food and the camaraderie of family. We give gifts to the poor. We send cards and packages to our troops overseas. We attend Christmas eve services. We worship. Worship the Babe. This time of year was chosen centuries ago – as early as 354 A.D. It’s my personal opinion that Jesus wasn’t born in December, but I love the tradition that a large part of the world sets aside a day just for Him. Whatever your traditions, however you choose to celebrate, I invite you to join me in worshiping the Babe in a manger.
God’s Got This. He has SO got this! It doesn’t matter what it is – He’s got it. IF. IF I will let him!
Lately I’ve said this little phrase to a couple friends at a couple different times. ‘God’s Got This’. Meaning, don’t worry, don’t stress, don’t be discouraged, God’s Got This. It’s all under control, it will all work out.God’s Got This. He has SO got this! It doesn’t matter what it is – He’s got it. IF. IF I will let him!

My thoughts are trending a bit to the melancholy side today. And I’m contemplating the Circle of Life. And the brevity of life. Just a vapor and then it’s gone.
As I have been spending all my waking hours preparing for my upcoming Market, I haven’t taken a lot of time to listen to the news. I see a bit of it here and there on fb when I take time to look at fb on my phone. I hear a bit from my husband when he comes home from work and shares what he has heard.
This weekend I slowed down my frantic pace a bit paid closer attention.
I watched this video shared by a friend.
Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the men and women who died while serving in the country’s armed forces. The holiday, which is celebrated every year on the final Monday of May, was formerly known as Decoration Day and originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union andConfederate soldiers who died in the war. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service. It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.
Many people visit cemeteries and memorials, particularly to honor those who have died in military service. Many volunteers place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries. -Wikipedia
