Well, hey there! Instead of a venti size of java, I thought I would serve up just a shot this week. I just wanted to share some love with you – plus my favorite Christmas recipe!
So, I paused from munching on some dark chocolate-covered pomegranates and sipping some Harry and David’s Chocolate Peppermint coffee to hang out with you for a bit. Thanks for pausing to join me for some Christmas java!
I’ve been wrapping gifts – actually, I’ve stuffed them into the crumpled gift bags I saved from last year! And, girl, I’m loving Christmas songs by Kathy Troccoli and Michael O’Brien while I breathe in the warm cinnamon fragrance of the wassail simmering in the crockpot. Sister, it tastes as good as it smells.
Well, it’s a wrap! Our final Fresh Grounded Faith for the spring is now in the rearview mirror…and what a happy memory it is! My heart if full from all the love, encouragement and energy those Connecticut girls lavished on us!

Clayton is an intelligent, thoughtful, contemplative young man. He’s always been a thinker.
When he was born, friends told me that even his little baby face looked “so serious.” Clayton is a smart guy. Chances are, whatever the topic of discussion, Clayton knows something about it … something useful, interesting.
The day I held my son child in my arms for the very first times. There aren’t words to describe the moment.
When we traveled on a family cruise this past summer, we didn’t even miss having the use of our phones for the internet because we had Clayton with us. As we said, “Who needs Google when you’ve got Clayton!”
When an opinionated person chooses to restrain thoughts, it shows a ton of self-control and thoughtfulness toward others. [Click to Tweet]
I’ve learned from him. One thing he’s taught me is even though I may know more, I don’t have to share it. Clayton’s opinions are usually very thought-out, but he isn’t quick to begin lectures on the subject. As he’s matured, he shows other-centered restraint when it comes to dispensing his opinion. What a great example that is to me.
