What do you see?

We used to play this game at my grandmother’s house growing up where you would look all around and focus in on something, and then you would say, “Ridda Marie, Ridda Marie, I see something you don’t see, and it’s……white.” Or whatever color it was. Then everyone else would look around and try to guess what it was. And whoever won got to be “it.” Our words would describe what we were seeing. Is it a cloud? Is it a flower? Of course, if no one guessed, you got to be it again, so you always tried to pick some teeny-tiny small fleck of something only you could see. David shows us something about this in Psalm 57…

I’m just not feeling it…

So, this is me being vulnerable (which isn’t the most comfortable thing for me) but I’m just not that into it this year. Usually, I am all decorated the week of Thanksgiving and have a strategy for Christmas gifts. I start baking in November. I’m all wrapped a week or two before Christmas, and all the Christmas carols I listen to all month long make me cry. I love Christmas….but this year, I’m just not feeling it. Isn’t that terrible? ….
