I went home for the weekend, a much needed escape.. I realized I really need that place where everyone there loves me because I am me. Even my crabby, irritable me. I can't tell you how refreshing it is to know there are someones who miss you and want to spend time with you. It was also so very nice to have my own room at night.. I love my roommate to death, but privacy is not one of my priviledges. I'm more of an introvert than extrovert, so after I spend a while around people I need time by myself to recharge. I love hanging out with people, but it does tend to wear me out, unless I'm completely comfortable and open around them.
So we were going through the movie channels on saturday night and the only decent thing on was a christmas movie. followed by another christmas movie. in april. hmmm... Then today I went to work and I get there around the time that the kids are just falling asleep for their nap so we have the classical music radio station playing. They definately played a christmas song.. It makes me wonder.. as I've written before, Christmas is a joyful, merry season. Every once in a while I think we need to feel that joy; stand in wonder once again of Jesus and the beauty of God coming down here to us. Every once in a while we need to slow down, enjoy being in awe of our Lord. God gave us christmas trees, and all the pretty things, the warm spicy smells, the lights and the snow as a gift. Almost like a date.. He's got this all planned out. What will make them happy? Fill them with delight? All because He's hoping we'll fall in love with him. merry christmas! ;)
