During this time of year, it is difficult to overlook the aisles of shelves displaying assorted candy and themed novelties at local retailers and supermarkets. This is a season where many anticipate confectionaries, cards, or flowers from loved ones while others make special reservations at restaurants or resorts.

Proverbs 1:5 “Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance.”

There are certain moments in our lives that we will never forget. These may include the day you graduated high school, the day you met your spouse, or the day your first child was born. They are moments that are ingrained in us and stand out more than others. One of these moments happened to me on November 23rd, the day after Thanksgiving. This year we spent the holiday with my brother’s family on a small farm in a suburb of Peoria, IL. We were at their house for several days that week, and on Friday we decided to venture out and spend some time in downtown Peoria. Caterpillar is based there, and we checked out their visitor center. This place has all the latest heavy equipment from CAT. You can watch a movie in a rock truck, drive a backhoe simulator, and climb all over their latest excavators. I had a blast – I mean my kids... my kids had a blast!

Planning is not something I had ever been good at as a student. Important dates and deadlines would sneak up on me, and I would not be prepared, or I’d miss them altogether. As I became a young adult I realized, little by little, that my mother was right all along when she said I needed to keep track of my important dates. The poor thing must have spent a fortune trying to find me a planner that would work for me, and that I would use consistently. Moms do know a thing or two about life, don’t they?!?

When we first started homeschooling everything chugged along very smoothly. My oldest was three and my youngest at the time was under one. We’d sit together and play with play-dough, read stories and finger paint to our hearts content. Time passed and my sweet baby turned into a screaming, jealous toddler... who still had her very sweet moments, don’t get me wrong. I found ways to occupy them both at the same time. He would play with play-dough and she would eat a snack in her high chair. He would draw with his crayons and she would play with some egg shakers. You get the idea. They both needed me constantly, and one after another the squeals for help would come. It. Was. Exhausting.

When I was growing up, it wasn’t unusual to have Christmas carolers come to our home and sing for our family. They would go from house-to-house sharing the good news of God’s Gift to mankind. I have happy memories of going caroling as a teenager as well. Singing about the Lord, encouraging others, and enjoying some hot chocolate on a chilly evening are all part of those memories.
