This week, I am thankful for my husband's job. There are so many without a job, and my heart hurts for all of you. May God provide you with work, and financial blessings very soon. Last year, we went through some rough financial times, and once again, we are facing some tight crunch times financially. My lovebug will be out of work for a week during thanksgiving, and two weeks at Christmas, but the bills still keep rolling in as we all know. We are not going to get depressed, or stressed out, we are laying our needs at the precious feet of Jesus. We know that He will meet our needs, He is our provider. This year has been so hard economically on everyone, and now, the holidays are here. We are not going to be able to buy gifts for each other, or anyone else. But, that is ok. Jesus is the reason for the season. We are going to bake a birthday cake for Him, sing songs to Him, read the Christmas story aloud, and celebrate Him. There are so many things you can do for Christmas without spending money, money, and more money. Be creative, give gifts straight from your heart. Give people your time, make some gifts with your own hands. Write letters, or poems. Bake someone a cake, or cookies. Give your smiles, laughter, friendship, and love away. Come on everybody, let's get back to the basics of life this Christmas. Give Jesus away, He is the greatest gift ever.
