The Southern Special week 36

We are inching closer and closer to Christmas and I'm no more ready than I was last week this time. Why you ask. Because once again my life is going through major changes, changes that are upsetting and heart breaking but God is in control and He is not surprised by any of it. So for now I pray and believe and put feet on my prayers doing all I can to move forward.

At this time of year we get really busy, shopping, buying, cooking, baking, decorating and traveling. We tend to lose sight of what is really important. Ourselves and our families. This holiday season, take a few minutes out for yourself, breath, stop and admire the decorations, see the smiles and wonders on the faces of young children, see the loneliness on the faces of the elderly. When you say Merry Christmas and ask "how are you" stop and really listen to their heart, not just their words. Many of us are going through rough times and need a hug, an encouraging word, a smile, a little of your time. Be willing to give not just a gift but yourself, it will be more meaningful to the person receiving and you, trust me on this.

Okay, that's my soapbox for today. I guess you really want to see who was chosen for this week's host favorites don't you?
