This time of year I come to the reality that we take so much for granted. There are a lot of people suffering. They've either just lost a loved one, have someone close to them that is sick, lost a job, having relationship problems, have to spend time away from a loved one, etc. I stress because I don't know what to get people for Christmas, or that we can't get everyone something for Christmas, but then I stop and think about the people in the above situations and I feel so heavy hearted, but at the same time I thank God for all of his blessings on me. I also think about the people that don' t know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. I have people that I see on a daily basis that I don't think knows Him. I also have loved ones that I am about to see this Christmas that are lost. Since they don't know him, do they know the real meaning of Christmas? I'm praying for everyone this Christmas. Only God knows what each person I come into contact with has going on in thier lives, but I am praying that each person can find peace this season. Merry Christmas to all and Happy New Year!!!!!!

I was on FB this morning and my aunt posted this quote that really got me to thinking. It really fits my life right now because my 3 year-old watches and tries to do everything that I am doing. Sometimes I question myself, "Do I want my children to be like this?" The quote is...
...Your children could become what you are, so be what you want them to be and never allow yourself to do anything that you are not willing to see your children do.Now that is something to think about. Especially if you have small children. So as I was trying to find the words to the song "Be Careful Little Eyes What You See" I came across this poem, which I changed he to she to fit my life...
Little Eyes are Watching You
There are little eyes upon you
and they're watching night and day.
There are little ears that quickly
take in every word you say.
There are little hands all eager
to do anything you do;
And a little girl who's dreaming
of the day she'll be like you.
You're the little angel's idol,
you're the wisest of the wise.
In her little mind about you
no suspicions ever rise.
She believes in you devoutly,
holds all you say and do;
She will say and do, in your way
when she's grown up just like you.
There's a wide eyed little angel
who believes you're always right;
and her eyes are always opened,
and she watches day and night.
The quote this morning reminded me that I'm always teaching a lesson, both intentionally and unintentionally. Remember the old saying, "Kids remember some of what we say, but all of what we do." So, that being said, let's watch what we say, think, and do because the children are our future and God's very special gift to us that we should ALWAYS cherish.
