As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

How to Have a Delightful Day!

  1. You get up in the morning thinking you have to run a bazillion errands with your mom and big sister.
  2. Your grandmother calls and invites you and your friend-niece to a Christmas lunch.
  3. You pick out a beautiful Christmas-y outfit to wear.
  4. You count the minutes until time to pick up your friend-niece (who has also chosen a beautiful Christmas-y outfit to wear).
  5. You arrive at Gammy's Christmas-y house!
  6. You notice that Gammy has also chosen a beautiful Christmas-y outfit, and you all have a very girl-y picture taken by the Christmas tree.

  7. You and your friend-niece stare at the skaters on the pond in the Christmas village.

  8. Your mom and sister leave to run the bazillion errands without you. Yippee!

  9. You play tiddly-winks.

  10. You eat a yummy lunch of grilled cheese sandwiches, pickles, and peppery potato chips, with fruit and snickerdoodles for dessert...all while sharing family stories and laughs.

  11. You play with Gammy's ceramic bunnies and make up stories about them.

  12. You watch an old Anne Murray Christmas special that Gammy loves, and ooh and ahh over the skater.

  13. Your mom and sister arrive (so soon?!) to pick you up.

  14. You leave with lovely party favors and special Christmas memories!
