[] The Generous Wife tip for Thursday December 25, 2008

Thursday December 25, 2008

     There are so many things that I wanted to share today that I couldn't fit it into one tip.  :)

     First, I wanted to thank all of you on the list.  You are a gift to me.  Your thank you notes, ideas and bits of encouragement have meant a great deal to me and it is such a joy to see so many women who want to bless their husbands and build their marriages.  Bless y'all.

     I also just wanted to praise God.  He is so good and this is a season where we are reminded of the incredible sacrifice He made in giving us His son as a little baby.  I often wonder what it must have been like for Him to look down on that squirmy little bundle and know that it was His Son, God incarnate.  Talk about a Christmas gift!

     I will be traveling over the holidays, so this will be my last tip for a few days.  I will certainly be back before the New Year.

    And lastly, please do just enjoy the season with your family.  Relax and don't let expectations or perfectionist  standards ruin your day.  Sing, hug, open presents, offer prayers of thanksgiving, help a friend, whatever.  Make it a day of celebration and joy, however imperfect, difficult or silly some of the happenings might be.  And, of course, give your husband plenty of Christmas kisses.  :)

     One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas Day.  Don't clean it up too quickly.  Andy Rooney

Think generous!  Lori <><
