Where Has The Time Gone?

Christmas came and went along with the ringing in of the new year and a few more days since I have blogged. I will try to catch you up to date of what all has been going on. I am afraid that I was guilty this year of getting caught up in the hussle and bussle of Christmas and all that we think we must do that I did not take time to enjoy what Christmas was really about. You see this was Clayton's (the grandson)first christmas, and my younger brother and his family came in from Oklahoma and spent Christmas and a few days with me. And, I wanted to make it extra special for him and his children and wife. I did not want them to come all this way and be disappointed. So I bought little games for them to have when they arrived at the house, and i rented xbox videos for them to play with. And last, but definitely not least, since I am the reason that my brother, Allen is a chocoholic , worse than I ever thought of I also did a lot of baking.

And if that was not enough the whole family keeps spreading the cold mess that is going around, around and around. I think I have had it about 4 times this fall/winter season. I think I am about to pull through again, but Alan feels really bad today with this mess. And Jesse also went to the doctor today for a round of meds. Lord, please help me spend more time with you and forgive me for failing you over and over. I hurt only you and me.

I was reading a few blogs that I check on almost daily and ran across this blog post, Many Questions, and i thought you might like to read it also.

Boy Donna, your blog spoke volumes to me and I am afraid I waste many days for the Lord. Lord, please help me to ask these questions to myself every day the first thing in the morning and to keep them on my mind through out the day. Thanks, Donna. There is a reason your are Nikki's Work Mama.

God Bless to You all

Thank you for my comment Joan; that meant a lot! Especially after the day I had.. && I got caught up in Christmas and forgot the real reason of it too, I guess we all fail God.. Lord knows I DO! I pray also that He will allow me to make more time for Him in my life, from school and stuff.
