I will try again....

A part of my heart is longing to permanently put my words somewhere, so here I go again! Here are some words that spoke to me recently. "When it's over, I want to say: all my life I was a bride married to amazement, vowed to Awe Himself, covenanted to Christ-and I took the whole of everything He gave in this gloried world into my open arms with thanks." I have been trying to prepare my heart and the hearts of my babies for Thanksgiving. I thought if we did this, then we would be even more prepared for Christmas. I always sit in the Christmas Eve service, wishing my heart was more prepared for the moment of reverence for what the Lord did through the Christ Child. I always sit there, hoping my children at least caught a glimpse of what His sacrifice really meant. I will start here, on this keyboard and prepare this family of mine, first for being truly Thankful and then to be truly Reverent.
