I love this picture and I got it from my sister Karens blog. She is doing a "Let Him In" post every day and I thought it was so cool, and thought I would try it. I know I will probably miss a day or 2 but I'm going to try. Thanks Karen.
I love this picture. It's my favorite one. This Christmas season I want to try to be more like Him and let Him in my life more.
Day 1 PATIENCE The other day while driving I got behind someone going very slow and wanted him to go faster because he was going like 10 miles under the speed limit. I could have gone around him or honked (which I never do) or said "Hurry up", but I decided to have patience and not make a big deal out of it and it made me feel better and I used the slow ride to just think about things and before I knew it I was home.
Day 2 CHRISTMAS SPIRIT Since I have been so busy with putting up lights with Andy I have had no desire to put up my tree or anything else. Zac and Reilly did that for me and it was so nice. They had all the Christmas things all on top of the piano with our Nativity set placed so perfect. We don't have alot of shelf room and so they put it all on the piano and they took pictures off the walls and put up Christmas things. They were so excited and I felt bad for not doing it so I helped them with the tree and fluffed out the branches, then when I had a few min after work I went through and organized things a little more and put out some more Christmas things. I felt alot better and had more of the Christmas spirit. Thanks Zac and Reilly.
Day 3 JOURNALS I have decided that I need to pay more attention to my journal since I forget to write in it. I used to write in it every day and I have lots of journals. After I had Parker I stopped and only wrote in it when I remembered and now it's like 6 months, a year or 2 before I remember, but now that I blog so much I decided to pull the stuff off my blog even comments(sorry guys but I have to put those in it too). I have been copying and pasting and now have 17 pages of my post. I feel like I'm getting so much better at my journal now. I love it.
Day 4( today) "Letting Him In" Thanks Karen for helping me find a way to feel the Christmas spirit more and finding a way to "Let Him In" more in my life. I hope it will make me a better person and closer to Him.
