Season---endings and beginnings

Andrew's football season ended today. It was a nail-biting game down to the last second. His team ended the season with an 8-2 record. They lost 16 to 22 in a division playoff, just one game short of the Super Bowl. We were very proud of Andrew's abilities and his excellent attitude. When I asked Andrew if he was going to play again next year, he said, "Oh, yes, for sure!" I am thankful for his head coach. As the team huddled at the end of the game, his coach stated: "I am very proud of each one of you guys. You are sad because you love football, and now it is over. But there is so much more to life than football. Football just teaches us many lessons we need to learn in life."

While it was the end of the football season, it is also the beginning of the Christmas season. We always decorate our tree the day before or after Thanksgiving. The kids enjoy hanging their ornaments---one new one for each year. I love December, and all of the busyness and festivities that it brings.

Gary was able to get a few colorful pictures of the sky from our backyard. Whatever season you find yourself in, remember to thank God for his undeserved blessings and never ending love. What a great season to praise God!

What fun season for Andrew! They did so much better than my Bears!!!

What a beautiful tree. Looks like you had someone professional do it.

I just finished taking down my fall items and will start working on the Christmas season.
