More Doing, Less Blogging About It

December 13, 2009

As I’m sure you can understand, blogging takes a back seat to the festivities around here. While our little cozy dwelling isn’t insanely busy, we’re trying to take the time to love the season and each other. We’re focused on enjoying each little thing as it comes, and slowing down to reflect on what we are celebrating. Even as I say that, I have to admit that it’s sometimes hard to fight the urge to be exasperated with the things that make life, life. Like losing electricity for a couple days, feeling ill, or having to change our plans because of weather or other things that come up. Is it so ironic that even while writing this post, I had to stop and change a stinky diaper?

But it seems like in the midst of inconvenience, God likes to remind us of himself. In the sweetness of fellowship, the beauty of a freshly fallen snow, or the twinkling of candles on a dark dark night. Yes, even when the stars shine extra brightly because no one around has any other source of light, we are reminded yet again of the Creator and Savior–the one who made the stars and whose coming to earth was announced amid them.

I hope you are having a precious Advent season and are taking the time to stop and reflect on what it’s all about. I’m off to have some more family time. I think there is some living to do…
