Can we do Thanksgiving, at least?
One reason I think we are in the dilemma the country is in is this. Christmas is not about shopping its about spending time with family and loved ones, honoring the birth of our Lord.
Its not about the gifts.
However, I want to put my list out there.
For Christmas I want:
*More people to accept the Lord Jesus as their personal Savior. It is nothing better than knowing that despite any screw up you have, someone still loves you.
*A digital camera. I want to capture the sights around me.
*Two aprons the better to create in the kitchen.
*Pot holders, dish towels, and kitchen frou frou. This will ensure I am in a kitchen I am really comfortable with.
*Some better cook ware. How else can I begin my trip into Italian fare?
*A deep dish for baking. Lasagna and mac and cheese along with bread pudding. Winter is coming and those meals would warm the soul.
*A bunt pan for more cakes.
*Hoop earrings in silver.
*A new tattoo. This may be my gift to myself.
This list may change but those reading, you know.
