Just this morning I sat down to put together our family Christmas card online. Immediately I found myself drawn to the ones with the headline "Joy".
(Sorry if you've seen this about a million times already.)
Well, yeah, I would believe that pretty much represents joy, don't you? Joy is like happiness times ten, I think.
Matthew and I were talking about Christmas gifts the other day, and I was surprised (very surprised!) that I had so few things on my list. We don't spend much money on oursleves on a daily basis, almost none, unless completely necessary. So usually Christmas is our time to get a few things for ourselves. For me that mostly includes clothes, and a few CDs or movies I have been wanting.
This year I feel pretty content. Though I'm not turning down the fabulous riding boots my mom already bought me. I think there's a pretty good reason why my Christmas list is so short this year and here's why...
I already have everything I could ever want, right here, right now.
