When Jessica asked me to write this article for her blog, the words immediately poured out. But something still didn’t feel quite right. I guess my hope is that it doesn’t seem superficial. Because my point is not that gifts are what Christmas is about. Clearly. But these simple ways of keeping it small are how we keep Christ at the center because we are still able to give and don’t leave Christmas feeling spent, exhausted and wondering how we will make it to the next paycheck.
As 2016 draws to a close, I am thankful. My friends that have experienced great loss can say they are thankful and we can, too. Because our joy is not found in material things or the happiness on our kids’ faces Christmas Day. Our true joy is found in Jesus Christ alone for He is our Redeemer.

This time of year normally goes out as fast as it comes in.
But this Fall, I’ve actually had time to breathe in the spice of my pumpkin coffee and enjoy the twinkle lights on my decorated Fall mantel. I would say we’ve enjoyed the crisp mornings and flipped the switch several times already to our gas logs, but that would be a story. It’s decided to feel like summer here in SC for a few extra months. Literally just pulled out my coat from the closet yesterday. Now that Thanksgiving is almost here, we’re all hoping the weather will decide to cooperate.
We’ve done so much these last few months. We visited the pumpkin patch and the apple orchard both TWICE!
