Maybe not so small.

Grace and Christmas and all that. 


Abide with me; falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide.
When other helpers, fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, abide with me.

Thou on my head, in early youth didst smile;

And, though rebellious, and perverse meanwhile,
Thou hast not left me, oft as I left Thee,
On to the close Lord, abide with me.

I need Thy presence, every passing hour.

What but Thy grace, can foil the tempters power?
Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, abide with me.

I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless

Ills have no weight, tears lose their bitterness
Where is thy sting death? Where grave thy victory?
I triumph still, abide with me.

Hold Thou Thy cross, before my closing eyes;

Shine through the gloom, and point me to the skies.
Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, Lord, abide with me.

Thank you, God, for Jesus.
Thank you, Jesus, for the Holy Spirit.
Thank you, Holy Spirit, for abiding in me.

Merry day after Christmas! 

I'm not sure what yours looks like but mine is already being filled with completely opening the new toys one by one, playing with them for 15 minutes before moving on to the next one that will be left half done before moving on to the next one..... We currently have an Easy Bake oven on the dining room table warming up, Indiana Jones in the PS3, new pajamas on, Legos on the floor.... breakfast has not even been thought about yet. Which is quite nice because our kitchen is freezing, there are no clean dishes, and we have no food - but for now none of that matters.
