This December my weeks appear to have themes. Last week it was all about decorating. This week’s theme: gifts (their purchase and wrapping). I had a blast last week, but I think this week could top it. I love buying gifts, wrapping gifts and giving gifts. To me, it’s the best feeling in the whole world.
- My December Daily journal entry will be about purchasing my new Iphone. I guess you could say this is a gift I gave myself. :-).
- This picture is my entry for the iHeartFaces Photo Challenge. Today’s topic was “stripes”. This is some scrapbook paper I will be using in a project.
- For “Journal Your Christmas”, today’s journal prompt is about gift giving. I love to give gifts, but more than that I love to think about the people I’m giving gifts to. I learned early on that you give because you love the person, not because of your expectations of how they will respond to the gift. I will be writing about gifts I’ve given and one’s I’ve received that have left a lasting impression.
- 25 Christmas movies. Mike and I watched “Babette’s Feast”. Another non-traditional Christmas, non-Christmasy movie, but one of my favorites. For me, it’s a wonderful reminder of the true spirit of the season. Out of great love for a group of people who are oblivious to her true talent, Babette sacrifices all she has to prepare for them a celebration dinner served only at the finest French restaurants. That’s what God does for us. Kleenex recommended.
“We love it when you give us gifts, Mom. Especially gifts we can eat.”
