Happy Advent, dear readers!
This is our weekend to put up the Christmas tree! Today, we went and picked out our tree, and now it is happily standing in our living room. It currently has lights, but no other decorations. We’ll do that tomorrow.
I also got the bulk of the shopping done, gifts wrapped, etc. I don’t know if I’ve ever been this on top of things! A special thanks goes to my mom and dad, who kept the kids so Mark and I could sneak off and go shopping. 😉
I love this season, when we get to set aside an entire month to focus on our Lord’s birth. I can’t comprehend why God would send His Son for the likes of me, but I’m so glad He did. This is cause for a huge celebration – God loved us so much that He gave His Son.
So, I say, haul out the holly! I wish each of you a blessed Advent season and a joyous Christmas.
I also have a bit of other news. I will be interviewed live on Blog-Talk Radio on Tuesday morning. 7 a.m., my time (Central Standard). Eric Canaday, author, radio host, and all-around great guy will be interviewing me, and I’d like to invite you to join us!
Now, I must confess to you. I was a bit hesitant about inviting you, my friends. I haven’t ever done a live interview before. Will I sound like Minnie Mouse? Will my southern accent make me sound . . . funny? Will I sit there in silence every time he asks me an intelligent question?
I don’t know. I just don’t know.
But after a bit of internal debate, I finally decided that I would love to have you, my friends, there to support me. And the wonderful thing about radio is I can’t see you. So if I totally embarrass myself and all of you, you can pretend you didn’t even hear, and I’ll never know. 😉
I wish you all a wonderful weekend filled with the joy of Christmas, and the joy of Christ!
