     I absolutely love this time of year from the Christmas decor to the sweet smells of baking holiday goodies. I think this week's features make the perfect gifts for friends and neighbors. What could be better than a homemade soup mix, treat jar or cookies?! Thanks to all who linked up this week. Keep sharing your amazing ideas below!

Light the World in Service this Christmas Season


     As hard as I try to simplify life to enjoy more time with family and friends over the holidays, I'll admit that the stress of preparations at times gets to me. The expense and thought put into Christmas gifts, decorating and organizing the house, and planning family activities to get in the Christmas spirit can quickly become overwhelming. It's then when I remind myself that God's presence in our lives is more important than presents under the tree. I particularly love the reminder in the quote below to serve as Christ, our perfect example, did and in doing so we'll more clearly see what matters most in life.

     I absolutely love this time of year, and although things have been especially busy, I'm looking forward to more time with family over the holidays. The kids and I have been having fun with some of these Gratitude Printables to reflect on all that we have to give thanks for. We hope this week's features will give you great ideas for Thanksgiving. Thanks to all who shared with us this week. :)
