Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from our home to yours!

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

Have you missed me? I’m so sorry to have been away. I’ve been fighting a crazy cold since Dec 9th and am just starting to feel better. Now the holidays are upon us, so things are busy on the home front. But, I didn’t want the holiday to go by without wishing everyone a Merry Christmas.

I’m thankful for the opportunity to share a little slice of the holidays with you. The photo above was taken just south of Flagstaff, Arizona just a few weeks ago. My hubby and I were able to go up and spend a week up there to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We both had colds, so we just sat inside and enjoyed each other’s company, listened to Christmas music, watched a few movies and was mesmerized by the peaceful snowfall outside our window. I LOVE snow!

As I hinted before, we did get to do one fun outing to the Lowell Observatory while we were there. I don’t want the story to get lost in the holiday shuffle, so I’m saving it until after the first of the year.  You’re going to love it! I’ve got some other stories in store for you as well. I know a few ladies who’ve been traveling on volunteer/missions focused trips and I’m hoping they’ll be sharing a bit of their trip here at TWP.  I can’t wait to introduce them to you.

I know that the holiday season isn’t always a fun or happy time for everyone, but I hope that you’re able to pause and reflect on the past year with thankfulness for even the smallest things.  Then take a moment to look forward to the blessings of the year to come. I’m thankful to have had the chance to start working on Traveling with Purpose and to make some new friends because of it this year. I continue to be thankful for my dear friends and family and all the other blessings that God pours out on us. I try to find the good in each day and trust that the Lord has everything under control in every circumstance. I am so looking forward to sharing some great adventures with you in 2013!

Our prayer is that in this season your home will be filled with the love of family and friends and that you will find peace in the coming year. What are you looking forward to next year?
