The subject of my MJP Gratitude Challenge for today is :
CHRISTMAS IN THE COUNTRY.
I lay awake for some time last night trying to find the words to describe why a country Christmas means so much to me.
I like to see the lights of town during Christmas. All the sparkly, pretty things in the stores are fun and make me smile.
For me though, all the noise, bustle and lights block out the real feelings of Christmas that I’m looking for.
I need nature in order to find the Spirit of Christmas. Solitude and quiet time to reflect are an important time of the season for me.
The barn is my very favorite place on holidays. Animals and their slower ways seem to be so comforting.
Simple decorations go better around here. Just a little extra, going overboard looks out of place.
I am hoping you are able to be where you are happy and do and see the little things that tell you “It’s Christmas.” All the time, God is Good.
