another rambley Christmas post

Hi! I'm still doing (but not blogging) the reading project. Still sick and trying to recover.

I spent today lazing around with Adam and the kids. There was more playing with new Christmas toys, more reading, more Battleship and Spot It! and coloring and such.

Last night my brother and his wife came over and we stayed up much too late, having much too much fun. It was lovely.

I'm ready for my ears and throat and nose to work properly again, but I'm just not going to complain about a day spent with the people I love best, in safety and plenty. Not every day can be like that, but this one was, and I'm grateful for the kindness of the Lord. He gives us days like this, too.*

Peace of Christ to you,
Jessica Snell

*This reminds me of one of the reasons I love the Psalms: there is a Psalm for you, no matter what kind of day you're having. The Psalms will give you the words to thank, to curse, to cry, to triumph, to laugh, to mourn - whatever you need, the Psalms will help you know how to pray about it. Which shows that God is always ready to hear us, no matter what our feelings at the time. I'm glad of that, too. Because there are also days that are today's opposite, and his kindness isn't absent from them, either.

I hope you're feeling better soon! I have been enjoying your Operation Read Those Books posts. I think I'd like to pick up a couple of them to read too! Thanks for adding to my list of books I'd like to read. :-)
