Merry Christmas Eve Eve

I just wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas Eve Eve.  This year I am feeling overly blessed, and very undeserving.  Have you ever felt that way?  I know it sounds silly, but sometimes I ask God, "why have you given me so much?"  And more importantly I ask myself, "what have I done to bless God back?" 

Christmas gets me all sentimental and makes me think a lot.  I feel like I am more intune to Christmas now that I am a mom.  I get the whole giving birth, loving your child, watching your child grow up, etc.  I am sure we all have the same feelings that Mary had, even if it was over 2000 years ago.  I guess before I was a mom I thought of Christmas as Jesus was born, yea, yea, people came to see him, big deal.  Now I am like holy cowl, she gave birth to a baby (without an epidural!), and she already knew the plan for his life, and had to raise the Lord of Lords, King of Kings, Immanuel.  What a big job Mary and Joseph had. 

It's just a lot to think about, and grasp.  Which I will probably never fully grasp it, but I am still trying. 

So as 2009 quickly leaves us, I am really looking forward to 2010.  God has big plans in store for our church, our family, and his followers.  So be ready friends, God may call you to do something awesome for him in the coming year. 

Merry Christmas from the Ferguson Family to your family!


"May the Lord continually bless you with heaven's blessings
as well as with human joys."
Psalm 128:5
