Well it is that time of year again where the world goes into a frenzy for the latest and greatest gift, the biggest turkey, and the finest trimmings. A time when the best of us get caught up in the buying spirit. This year I am going to try and slow down. Slow down and enjoy the end of a good year that God has given me, and make sure that I give Him the thanks that He is due. I mean 2008 has been a year of blessings and now is time to thank the Lord for all He did for us before we begin to look ahead at what He has planned for us in 2009. So this year take some time and just thank the Lord for all that He has done. Slow things down a little and enjoy the season for what it is, a time to praise God for His love and His sacrifice.
