Right now I feel a bit like Santa...you know the part in Night Before Christmas where it talks about his round belly that shook when he laughed like a bowl full of jelly??
Yeah..that sounds about right.
But mine would be a bowl full of ice cream...
and peanut butter M&M's.
and Christmas crack.
and cinnamon rolls.
and Christmas candies.
and...well, we'll just stop right there.
But this afternoon...my tummy is not the only thing that feels full.
My heart does too...
Full of joy.
Full of gratitude.
And at a time when I would typically be sentimental (with the end of the year, Christmas being over, etc.) I feel satisfied. Like someone who leans back in his chair during a big family meal and just relishes the moment.
Nothing fills the soul like time celebrating Jesus, time with our families, time with friends, and time with my Love.
