The Twenty-Four Days Before Christmas – Day 2

Before I tell what we did today I would like to ask for prayer for our son, Joey, who will be having an MRI done tomorrow. There is always a little anxiety that goes along with the scan. He actually won’t know anything tomorrow as he doesn’t see his doctor until the 9th — I think. But, please say a little prayer for him. 
So, today we got out the wreaths that go on the front columns. They didn’t look too good but we worked on them and found some red bows and tied them on. In the end they looked ok – not great, but we were happy enough. Somehow this year getting things “just right” doesn’t seem to matter much to me. Things don’t have to be perfect. We are just trying to enjoy the season and keep the real reason for Christmas as the focus. 
After we finished, Andrew made some cookies while Piper watched and everybody else stayed outside — the cookies were from a package, though. We will make real cookies soon. 


  1. I pray nightly for Joey, for complete healing. I hope all goes well in the scan and the news is positive and encouraging! The wreaths look lovely.

  2. Thank you so very much. We will know something the end of next week and it is so hard to wait – emotions go all over the place.
