It's begining to feel a lot like Christmas!

So around here, things are feeling a bit chilly; do I love it........ not so sure yet, but it certainly is helping to get us ready for the Christmas season that is just around the corner!
We've got the Advent wreath out, the Christmas tree is up, St. Nicholas movies playing in place of Toy Story..... for the time being :)
But this year, in this great season of anticipation for Christ our family is anticipation some other things as well.
Not only are we expecting two amazing gifts from God very soon (the more I think about it, the more I realize how soon!) But my older brother and his wife are expecting their first baby ANY DAY!!!!
In such an amazing way this year, waiting and anticipating the birth of a new nephew has opened my heart to the great anticipation that we are to have for our Lord.  The joy of a new life, the prayers for their safety, the preparations.  What a great gift!   Please pray for little Henry Leo Murphy, III (aka Bing) who should arrive anytime this Advent!
