My Somewhat Secret, Slightly Selfish, Christmas Wish List:
A Spa Day
Job that fits me and that I fit, at hours that do not conflict with family time (no nights and weekends).
Focus to finish my current writing projects & goals and enough extra FOCUS to do the really Big One.
Perseverance to trust God in the face of adversity.
Faith to believe that which is not currently visible.
Contentment within that is contagious to those who also need it.
Grace for the moment that I might have a word in season.
Power to hold my tongue.
Courage to speak truth, but only when laced with love.
Clarity to see clearly what matters at any given moment to choose well.
Faithfulness in prayer.
Dedication to study daily the Word of God.
Discernment to prioritize according to His Good and Perfect will for me (Ephesians 2:8-10) and live accordingly.
Willingness to serve others as God leads.
Ability to say "no" when needed.
Availability to yield at a moment's notice to His Spirit, Voice and Instruction.
In a nutshell, that I would be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry.
That will be a tall order, for Mr. Clause- so I will just continue to lay that before my Lord and trust in the One who can and will deliver that miracle in His time.
Oh, and lots of SNOW cause I'm kinda dreaming of a white Christmas!
