I did, I really did. Living in No. California where we do, we got snow today. We are only at 2000 feet, so snow is rare. They kept telling us on the news we were going to get it. Yes, we got a few flurries, but where was that white covering stuff???? Growing up as a child til the ripe age of sixteen, I lived in Connecticut. We pretty much always had a white Christmas. Now at the VERY very ripe age of 51, soon to be 52 (next month), well, all these years, no WHITE Christmases to be had here at home. Well, this will be our sixth December here in the woods of No. California. For the first time since being here, we got some snow today, in December. Just loving it, can't even tell ya.
Here is a picture of once upon a time my cottage studio. See how far it is from our house. That's why I don't use it any longer. But it still sits there all sweet and stuff.
Oh for the REALLY BIG Christmas Wishes....I WISH MORE THAN eVER...that my MOM, my Mama was still here on earth. I AM CRUSHED!!! My heart breaks for her. SHE so LOVED Christmas! On her measly salary (social security) she would still find away to buy us some gifts. Last year, the LAST year she would buy us Christmas gifts, well, for me, she gave me some scarfs and earrings. SomeTIMES I REALLY WANT TO SCREAM!!!! I WANT MY MOM SO BAD, TO BE BACK, just for a minute...please, just for a minute so I could tell her all the things I never did....but then, maybe I did. I was pretty open with my mom.
GRIEF...i HATE IT!!! But without grief, we would NOT know JOY!
The JOY of the LoRD is my Strength...IT Truly is. I am experiencing sorrow and joy all at the same time. Only in GOD could this happen, a true spiritual journey.
THANK YOU JESUS...so GLAD YOU were born that Christmas morn.
