Hello and come on in Through My Back Door. Get yourself a cup of DD and lets sit in front of the fireplace and chat.
So what is with this title, you ask. Well the other day, Mollie was reading her bible to Amanda. She said and I quote, " Kwistians should not run into the street. Kwistians should not get runned over". Well of course we all got such a laugh out of this. Then it hit me. The "kwistians should not get runned over" part. We shouldn't but we do. We don't literally run out into the street, but life runs over us. Why do we let it? We especially get "runned over" during the holidays. Decorating, shopping, cooking, parties, church programs, cantatas, they run us over! I think this little girl's statement shows wisdom. "Kwistians should not get runned over". It has pounded in my memory ever since Amanda shared this. This Christmas this "Kwistian" is going to refuse to get runned over. Will you join me? Let's truly enjoy these days. Make a list and go over it. See what you can eliminate. Leave out some traditions if they are being taken for granted or not really enjoyed anymore. It isn't about the gifts, how much you spend, or who can out do who. It is about Christ and His coming, the greatest gift of all.(as a Christian I have to think His giving His life for me, is the GREATEST gift, but if He hadn't come, He couldn't give His live) Send a card, make cookies, (buy cookies) forget cookies,lol, don't feel you have to accept every invitation, take time to sit in front of the fire and listen to Christmas music, read books, watch Hallmark movies, just be. Just enjoy these days. I love to entertain during Christmas, as I believe God wants us to open our homes as well as our hearts to people, but this year I am cutting back. I don't want to get "runned over". Do you? After all, "Kwistians Should Not Get Runned Over".
I am going to leave you with some favorite pictures of this precious little girl. I know people (however I do) don't really want to see or hear about other peoples grands, but allow me this one more time.
PS: I just got back from eating lunch with Andrew on family day. Amanda alternates and it was Mollies turn at Mothers Day Out. Clay couldn't get off, so I was given the privilege. Know what? He hugged me good bye and said I love you, without me initiating it!!! I didn't want to embarrass him. I love it!
