Why is it so hard to find the "perfect" christmas gift. I must say that it is a blessing and a curse to be a "gift giver". I love to give gifts. I love it when someone opens up something that I have gotten them and is excited because they know that I actually put some thought into it. But I am so sad to report that this year, my life has been crazy and I haven't been so intentional to listen to what people want or need. So now, here I am, 3 weeks before the big celebration and no ideas about what to get. PLEASE LEAVE ME LINKS if you have any ideas!
the reason why this is a curse, is because, although i would be happy with nail polish as a gift, (i would say nothing, but i think I would actually be dissapointed if I didn't get anything) I would way rather give than recieve. So even though I am not wrapped up in the commerce of the Holidays for my own sake, I am officially wrapped up in it for the sake of others!!! what is wrong with me. Anyway, I am seriously excited the most, this year, to spend time with my family. My brother, my sister, my sweet little nephew and my husband. I can hardly wait to spend more than a frantic 2 days with them!
I am also wanting to find a way to bring Jesus deeper into the season. Andrew and I have talked about lighting an advent wreath together, but growing up baptist, I don't get the depth of yet, so I haven't made it of utmost importance.
I think it is so weird how being in the ministry, Jesus has become such a MAJOR piece of every bit of every day, I have started to realize that I just asume that people know that i am giving praise to God because of "what I do". Isn't that weird. I am thinking that I need to be more outward, even though my job and walk reflects my love for the Lord, maybe my words are less so.
This is a long e-mail full of random thoughts. Sorry, but let me ask you one more time!
Do you have any fun gift Ideas?
peace and Love...*Sarah
