Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:4-7

During the Holidays...


In no particular order I...

Helped run a Holiday Bible Club.
Hosted lunch for 12 people the day the Bishop came to visit at church.
Read an absolutely delightful novel.


Visited the museum and city library with the boys.
Had friends and their children over to play a few times.
Watched Julie and Julia at long last. (Great movie for foodie blogging types!)


Attended a really beautiful wedding.
Celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary.
Binged on West Wing episodes.  (Several episodes in the later series mentioned blogs and bloggers in a none too complimentary tone...but I'm not deterred...it is still great viewing!)


Caught a cold.
Spent a day on a friend's farm.
Made this to display some special photos at my desk.


And missed blogging.  Had to have the break.  A matter both of survival and doing a good job of the holidays.  But glad to be back!

FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABULOUS! You crammed a lot of good stuff in Meredith! THanks for sharing. Sal

Thanks Sal. Funnily it didn't seem all that crammed - and given vast amounts of evening TV time and novel reading I am feeling curiously refreshed given it is the end of the school hols! We didn't see you though...but hopefully will catch up next weekend when our mutual friends are in town. Looking forward to that.
