I hope your Christmas was glorious, fun, Spiritual and filled with love for each other and God.
Mine was funny, surprising, fun, snowy and Spiritual, what more could I ask for? I still smile when I think of Jenna opening a gift and saying with a questioning look on her face, “but I don’t remember asking for this.”
I know you are wondering two things: How much weight did I gain and the big question, what did my man get me for Christmas?
First, the weight, I felt really big on the way home especially since we stopped and I had a Candy Cane Blizzard all to myself. I gained about 4 ounces over Christmas. I am on the wagon today, we do have some candy in the house, I am planning to stay out of it. I am actually thinking of sending it to work with Bob. But, it is sooooooooooooooo good.
The Huskers play in a bowl game this week, and then there is New Year’s Eve, I can see eating in my future. How about you, how did you do over the holiday?
Can you tell I am avoiding telling you what my fella got me for Christmas? https://nancyoutlook.wordpress.com/2009/12/09/another-surprise/. Well, it was not another stuffed bear. You know I was waiting with great anticipation.
Here is how it played out. I had taken the envelope downstairs to the wrapping table. I wondered if he would remember it, mean of me I know, but I had decided not to remind him. At the last minute he ran downstairs and wrapped it up and put it in the car.
Christmas morning the kids had opened about all they could stand and we decided to eat breakfast and then open some more. Quick as a wink, Bob jumped up and grabbed his present to me and said, “open it.” All eyes were on the quickly wrapped package. My hands were trembling (not really), I ripped the wrapping open and it was a . . . . . . . . . . . . .KJV electronic Bible.
This is what I am thankful for: He took the time to buy me something he thought I would enjoy. He thought a Bible was something I would enjoy. He was excited about the gift. He loves me enough to venture out and buy something I had not asked for. He bought it without help from anyone.
It will be handy for my purse and I will keep studying on how to use it. King James is not my favorite version of the Bible but I will use this gift with warm feelings for my man.
There has to be a Spiritual lesson here somewhere, could it be that I am not always thrilled with the gifts God gives me, but with every gift there is a lesson to be learned and a growing of character and mind?
