It’s been a holly jolly busy week! After ministering a week ago, we spent this past week here and there and all around. Wednesday saw us in mid Nebraska visiting great grandma. She was tipped off by a lurking family member (Kristi) but we had a nice dinner with her and got some shopping done.
Friday Eric and I drove to Ft. Collins to see our dear friends and her family. It was a quick 24 hour jaunt, however we had a great time and a nice drive home.
Monday afternoon we were in the car again to the eastern end of Nebraska for a Christmas-y get together. We love to chat and play games and drink coffee with the local folk here. I had planned to drive back 3 hours to the inlaws, however at 2 am when the coffee ran out we ended up spending the night. You wouldn’t think so, but brushing your teeth with soap and a wash cloth works pretty darn good.
Today we finished up our Christmas shopping and are hanging out waiting for my brother-in-law and his family. We’ll open gifts in about an hour. We usually have sandwiches and soup and play a few games. Tomorrow morning we spend with my side of the fam. Yay!
I’m looking forward to getting home and going to OneThing. I’ve had some special moments with Jesus but with all the busyness, I’m just really longing for those quiet alone times with Him. So hope you all find that quiet mystical place in the midst of the blessings of life this holiday season. Merry Christmas!
