Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

Have yourself a Merry little Christmas,
May your heart be light...
From now on our troubles will be out of sight.

Your Christmas may be a lot like our little house here:

It may be small.

In fact, it may (literally) be falling apart at the seams.

It may be a mess.

And it may be something that was meant for joy for small children but ended up a wrestling match on the floor over who ate the last gumdrop and who licked the front door.

But it is Christmas, nonetheless.

And so, like our little house, may you find "sweet" joy on the sidewalks, sprinkles in the font yard and powdered sugar when you look out your windows.

And may you remember that no matter how small the house...
it could be a stable.

Wise words, and read by someone who totally relates! :) Have yourself a merry, little Christmas, you and yours.

A couple of years ago some friends had a party and as the activity we all had to build gingerbread houses. It was a contest. Charlie and I did the best we could, but having never actually built one before, we didn't do that well! It was pretty sad.

I hope you have a Merry Christmas, too!

I love how you have put this simply for those of us that are not so polished!!! What a story you have told, to remind us of how we keep our house... is it a home? Are we sliding? Shutters flapping in the wind? The most amazing part, is that Our Risen Saviour just gives us a nudge to put us back in shape.
Merry Christmas to you all!
