The Free Starbucks Drink

I don't know what it was,
but today was a good day.
The church sermon today focused on "The Word became flesh" (John 1:14)
and how Jesus not only humbled himself coming into the earth as a baby boy,
but also how He left His perfect home and Kingdom 
to this broken, broken, sad world just for us.
It was a good eye opener and reminder.

Then I went to starbucks and this guy with a scruffy beard and wide brown eyes gave me a free venti starbucks drink because apparently a lady at the drive through changed her mind and didn't want it.
There were other people in starbucks but he asked me first,
and it was kind of him.
Acts of kindness are things I want to do more often.
I want to look more like Jesus.

Then after lunch and a nap,
my little sister and I had a movie afternoon and watched the Santa Clause 2 in my room.
I put on three different christmas lights,
I lit four different candles,
and we cuddled up and enjoyed a christmas movie together.

After dinner my family and I made some hot cocoa and went on an adventure to see this decked out house and came back and watched "How the Grinch Stole Christmas".

I'm going to be honest, there have been a lot of ups and downs this Christmas season.
Some tradition things we haven't been able to do.
And some newer christmasy things I have been able to do.

But with three days until Christmas Eve,
I'm starting to fill up with Christmas cheer.
Especially when I think of what Jesus has done for me and did for me.
And the whole world.
My mighty savior, my prince of peace,
Glory to Him in the Highest.

I'm also excited because after Christmas I am going to New Hampshire for a bit.
And I might get the chance to do this;

Here's to hoping that it snows and I can go on a sleigh ride!

Merry Christmas, guys.
Want to tell me some of your Christmas traditions/memories?

  1. This was so sweet. I love that you got to watch movies and get a free coffee and have a fun Christmasy day! :) And the lesson at church was great. Jesus is such a hero, such a rescuer. The Gospel story, when you think about it, is just so epic! And I bet it will snow. That would be the best! :)
