Taking a Moment

Many of you know that we have a very busy week - Craig is cooking BBQ for his office party [an all night feat, or maybe two, depending on what all he cooks-] and I'm working out of town three days before we head to Auburn to see our oldest baby graduate [more on that later] And it's the Christmas season and not only have we not started shopping, we're not even sure what we might be looking for when it comes to gifts! So things have been rushed and hurried as we've made our plans... getting ready for the week - But we took a little time this weekend and enjoyed friends and fellowship and time to worship - Saturday night we met our camping buddies for dinner and a movie [the Blind Side - oh so good!] and then Sunday night we enjoyed 'Carols for Christmas' at Trinity Methodist - a community effort of worship.A celebration of our reason for celebration - the birth of our Savior. Let's make an effort to slow down for a moment each day as we go through this season and reflect on the Greatest Gift of All.

And, if you're a scrapbooker - here's the challenge for the month
