It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Have I mentioned I love Christmas time. This week has been crazy busy but a blast. Monday night was the Christmas party for the shelter clients. What a blast. Can you imagine 30 kids running around the CAC. It was pure wonderful chaos. I loved watching them all open a present and stocking. They were so excited and did not know while I was trying to entertain them(that's me, the child entertainer) their moms were loading up their cars with goodies that they could give them on christmas day. My parent group members were also there. They gave me the sweetest Christmas card which all their kids signed. It made me cry and reminded me how worth it my job truly is:)
Tuesday night was caroling at Beth and Bob's house. What a blast. I just love bundling up in my pink marshmellow coat and scarf and singing from house to house. .Mommy came too and it was so much fun.
Finally Wednesday was the first annual humbert youth Christmas party. Did you know you could cram 27 youth into our little apartment. Glory. It was a blast, with some intense all contact chinese white elephant gift exchange.I love those youth so much and I am so excited to see what God is doing.
I must admit, my time with the Lord has been lacking due to all this crazy christmas activity. Isn't that horrible, when this season is all to celebrate him. Lord forgive me for not putting you first above everything else.
I can defionatly tell my flesh rares up all day long when I don't have my tijme with Jesus. Espicially yesterday. I was just plain mean to my gingerbread man. I better make sure to wake up extra early for quiet time tommorow.

Hey sister.. i am sorry that we have not been able to hear eachother when we have tried to talk lately-- it's frustrating. But I love you and I miss you soo much. I cannot imagine you being mean to your gingerbread man.. but if you ever need therapy remember i am there.. heheh. i am glad that the ladies at work liked the christmas cookie.. i was just thinking about you guys. the christmas play went really well. I believe that i had been experiencing some intense spiritual warfare over it, because I feel a huge weight lifted now that it is over. About 200 people came.. and most of those were unchristian hindu neighbords.. praise God.. it was awesome and the play seemed to go really really well and everyone seemed to enjoy it. praise the lord. christmas is alot of fun here.. although i miss you alot alot

YOU BETTER BE GOOD TO YOUR GINGERBREAD MAN. YOU DON'T WANT HIM TO JUMP OUT OF THE WINDOW AND RUN LIKE HE DID IN THE STORY. HE BETTER BE GOOD TO YOU ALSO, OR YOU MIGHT BAKE HIM A LITTLE TOO LONG. HA! I LOVED HEARING ABOUT THE PARTY FOR THE CHILDREN AT YOUR WORK. ALSO, WE ARE ALL GUILTY ABOUT NOT SPENDING AS MUCH TIME WITH GOD AS WE COULD DURING THE HOLIDAYS. REMEMBER WE ARE SHOWING OUR LOVE TO OTHERS JUST LIKE HE SHOWS HIS LOVE TO US DAILY. MERRY CHRISMAS....MOMMA ELLIS
