Coming to a Close

Semester is done
Gone the sun
From the lakes
From the hills
From the sky!
All is well?
Soon to rest,
God is nigh.

I will stop my griping, friends. I will. 
I think I'm "one of those" kinds of people who just needs to be unhappy for a minute, and then I can get over my bad self and move on. Right? Right.

The semester is almost over. I will celebrate it by making Grammy's Christmas cookies with my sister, on accounta she would have made them herself, but had some old friends and family to go visit instead.

Instead of complaining today, I'll mix it up a little.

I'll explain that I'm grateful for the chance to fail tests. I'm grateful for parents that have paid for my education my whole life, who have educated themselves, and who have insisted I use a dictionary when I have questions.

I'm grateful for my voice, that I can do plays, and that I can sing because it makes me feel happy.

I'm grateful for the people God puts in our path to brighten our days and make us feel better.
I'm happy for chocolate, even if it does make me feel porky when I eat too much.

I'm grateful for Christmas time, that for at least once in a year, people turn their hearts to Christ - even if just for a second. It is no coincidence that people are kinder, more giving, more loving and more caring at this time of year. It is the thinking of Christ, listening to music about Him, and living the way He would have us live - even if just for one month a year.

God bless us, everyone! And Merry Christmas!
