keeping christ.

in christmas is what my moms group was about on monday @ the church. our theme is joy in motherhood. the speaker was our wonderful pastor's wife, Mrs. Jo Beth Young. whenever all the decorations are gone. whenever the christmas tree is all down, keep the joy is what i should say. keep the joy being a mother. i truly hope that i can do that. first it comes from the heart. then tonight i read blog about peace. this post was written for me to read and be remined of god's peace. i so truly feely rejuvinated by that post. she was explaining what peace meant. right now i just really feel like i need strength right now. for anyone who stops at this blog, please say a little prayer for me! thanks.
