This time of year

It is has come again, this is the time of year full of family, friends, carols, snow, presents, food, and the new year right around the corner. There is so much around us and so much going on that we can get lost in the hustle of everything. I myself find that this time of year is very busy, not only with the family gatherings, outings with friends, and planning around schedules, but also with the sense of another year, and the feeling of time slipping flying by and not seeing how fast life is moving around myself. So I am taking this time to look at the things around me and see that I am so thankful for them. I am grateful for the people that I have to spend my time with. This time of year is also one of which I find so beautiful and amazing, the trees topped with snow, the crunch of snow from your shoes, the amazing way water can form beautiful icicles.

 I look around and see that life is beautiful and amazing, and it is precious. So stop with me for a second from the planning and hustle and look around yourself, look at what you find pretty, or beautiful, and thank God that He has placed that in your life to give you the reminders that He cares about you, and loves you. He has given us so many amazing, precious, gifts to see, enjoy and glorify.
