Christmas was excellent! We had such fun. The kids did a string treasure hunt for their gifts from me. Then they cracked open their geodes (my gift) while waiting for Grandma (where was she??) After Bible... Hooray!, she finally came at 11! The kids did an excellent job being so patient. We spent the rest of the afternoon building/reading/playing with our gifts. Later after dinner we watched It's a Wonderful Life. *Jimmy Stewart is awesome.*
Lately we have been spending a lot of time at home. Cleaning, organizing, creating and just spending time together. It has been so much fun. The house is looking so much better. I think everybody feels better too. Getting rid of physical baggage helps get rid of spiritual baggage at the same time. It is amazing how much we hold on to. The silly things we can't get rid of because of the emotional attachment... "But I got this from... But he gave me this.."
After much prayer I have put my Real Estate License under inactive which means I am not a Real Estate Agent any more. It is so funny because even though this was never my first choice as a job/career and I couldn't wait 'till the Lord released me, it was hard to let go of something I worked so hard for. I don't understand why He has called me from this path but I know He has a plan..... He just hasn't showed me yet. I hope He shows me soon! :)
