Picture Ornament from one of my favorite students.
Since we began the process of trying to conceive, and are now on the process of adopting, Christmas has held a little bit of sadness for me. I always dreamt of experiencing the blessings of Christmas with and through my children and that has yet to be. While Christmas has always been my favorite holiday, I realized that I was focusing on the things I didn't have, instead of all the gifts I do have, especially the greatest gift of all, Jesus Christ! I came across something really great while doing my daily morning devotional the other day... "Do not allow Christmas to be defined by your disappointment, but allow your disappointment to be forever changed because of Christmas." Love that! And I have decided to let that be my motto and my attitude about Christmas because Christmas presents all the blessings that we find in Jesus Christ! I continue to look forward to the promise of future Christmases with our future little blessing. :)
