Christmas musings

Every year we wait and wait for Christmas to come. And then it comes, and in a split second it’s gone. This Christmas something just felt different for me. Even though I love Christmas time, the giving of gifts, the receiving of gifts, and most importantly the remembrance of our Saviors birth, something just wasn’t right.

I took all my presents up stairs after we opened them. And I stood there looking at them. There were many. Some big, some small. But most important I had gifts. I felt happy, and loved. Right in that moment I began thinking of all of the families that don’t get to experience Christmas the way that we do. There are families that don’t even get food every day. And here I am with all of these presents! I felt so greedy and selfish looking at the presents on my bed. I felt like I didn’t give enough this Christmas. Not the physical gifts. But the more personal gifts. The gifts of love, joy, peace, the gift of Christmas.

I know Christmas is over, but I am still listening to Christmas music, so here are two songs that go with what I was trying to say:

I own neither songs. All credit goes to Matthew West, Mandisa, Amy Grant, and producers. 🙂


Happy Christmas, and a Merry New Year!

Hey don’t laugh, it’s good to be different! I’m so excited to be back! I had lots of fun. Now there are two things that I want you guys(and girls, tee hee hee) to do. Okay, three things. The first is what was your favorite Christmas gift. I’ll start, mine was probably, the guitar. Um..yeah or the AMAZING Jamie Grace sweatshirt that my sister got me, or the awesome, awesome socks that my cousin got me. No I’m no kidding on that last one. On the toe of the sock it says ‘I am awesome’! (here’s the link http://www.notestoself.com/) And of course CD’s! Okay so I picked a lot more than just one, but hey…(read the first sentence again!)

   Now the next thing I want you to do is…wait for it…wait for it…okay fine, it’s really simple. Have a great new year!

  And the last thing I want you to do is to vote(down below) for a new page. The deadline on this poll is February 1st. So don’t delay, vote today! He he he. 😛 😉 Okay so, Mandie’s Music is a page filled with music videos that I can make. And you guys will get to choose some of the songs I do. Health time! would be healthy recipes and snacks that I love, that I will share with you! Mandie’s Fashion is where I would share some random fashion knowledge, with you of course! And My Favs would be a page where I will put some of my favorite things, books, songs, singers, food, etc. So you can get to know me better, I guess! 😀 So again don’t delay, time is running out! VOTE TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
