That's what Ivy said as soon as she saw the first Christmas lights go up. "Christmas"! We will definitely have a smaller Christmas this year but I am so incredibly grateful that we have each other and most importantly our hearts are right with God. Material things are not what matters most, but our Lord Jesus and each other. This year, I really feel the importance of putting souls first. Not "buying, buying, buying". I feel like I am waking up out of a deep slumber. Thinking only of myself and what I can buy next. I pray that my little ones can understand the importance of the real meaning of Christmas and what critical times we are in. There are "hallowed walls" being built made up of false promises, but Christians know better than to be seduced. Hopefully. I think slowly people are waking up to what really counts. Our hearts before God, and family. Careers, money, cars, fame, material things, they all are temporary and it is like feeling a bag with holes in it. It doesn't all really matter. When my kids shout "Christmas", I hope they know it's more than being about "Santa" and "toys". :D

We will be putting up our tree tomorrow. I'm going to leave it to the boys to decorate. All by themselves.
