Merry Wanderings

This short little post and link up will be the last of 2015 for me. I thought I would continue to blog through the end of the year, but I just need to keep it real, once Thanksgiving hits I’m done (which is why I was missing last week, it sneaked up on me!). I am so focused on enjoying the season I can’t think of anything else.


My daughter’s Christmas ballet recital  kicked off the Christmas season for our family today. We have a school program, 2 work Christmas parties, caroling, baking day and my daughter’s 8th birthday yet to go!  I love all the family moments this season brings!

My prayer for all of you ladies, is that you find the joy of the season. It’s a busy time for a lot of us and it can also be a time of sadness or stress, but I challenge you to look for moments to seek Joy. Joy with a capital J comes from fulfillment from the Lord. From trusting in His provision and seeking to give Him glory in our choices.


I will return the second week of January because my holiday doesn’t end until after New Years and the kids have gone back to school. We celebrate New Years big here at the Lawson house! With it falling on a Friday we plan to continue the game playing, movie watching, big meal cooking clear through the weekend! Can you feel my excitement….I’m like a little kid!


I wish you a Merry Christmas and so many blessings to you this season. You all have made my 2015 an amazing year and I can’t wait to get to know you better in 2016. Loving and blessings!

  1. Your daughter is beautiful Winter 🙂 Enjoy all the celebrations and family time! See you in 2016! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! 🙂

  2. What a little princess. 🙂 Wonderful that you’re taking the time to be present for your holidays. I’m hoping to be able to “feel” the holidays before they slip away this year too. ((Merry Christmas))

  3. Oh, hooray for you and Merry Christmas. I’m planning to scale back this month as well, and I look forward to hearing how wonderful it all was when you return in January!!

  4. Your daughter is lovely! Thanks for keeping it real about the importance of being fully present with your family over the Christmas season. You are right on target with that decision and choice. Time flies with our children and you want to savor every minute of this!! (My children are now grown and my six grandchildren are no longer toddlers….the oldest is 21 and a senior in college!) I know how fast this goes! Have a fun-filled, joyous Christmas and I’ll look for you again in January!

  5. This is a special and meaningful season for so many of us. May yours be filled with the breadth and width and depth of our Lord and Savior. And may the special family gatherings and celebrations be sweet.
    Merry Christmas, Winter.
