Merry Christmas!

Christmas is Here!

Well, not really! But almost. I have had a blast decorating the house, J's office and my classroom. I love the Christmas holiday season. What a great time to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior. I love the Christmas musicals, pageants, and parties. I especially love attending church and reading about a young woman who listened to God and did what she was told. If you know me very well, you know I have a bit of a stubborn streak. I don't always like to be told what to do. I think my lesson I need to learn from Mary is to listen to God, no matter how crazy the instructions may sound, He knows what is best for me and His people. I am a vessel of God, no matter how cracked and warped I may be, I am a vessel none the less.
Lord, use me, as your vessel, to let your light shine to those around me. Let your Son be known through my hands, feet and voice.
