A new blog...

I don't even remember the last time that I posted on my other blog, so after being inspired by a dear friend from reading hers I decided to start up another one.

I love this time of year. I have been praying since shortly after Thanksgiving that my eyes would be opened and that I would continually be reminded of the true reason of Christmas. I don't know how many years have passed that I have been so caught up in the "hustle and bustle" of the season that I forget to stop and focus on Jesus.

After arriving at my aunt & uncle's house shortly before the blizzard set-in on Saturday I was reminded once again how blessed I am with the family that God placed me in. I forget how much I enjoy being around my aunts and uncles and cousins. A personal highlight was getting to talk to my dear cousin Caleb for a few brief moments. He's spending Christmas on the other side of the world and I was reminded that it is truly moments like these that remind me that the God we serve is big enough. He's big enough to hold us.
