Merry Christmas in July


In the midst of the desert, blazing sun, doesn't quite feel like Christmas.   Deep down in my heart, I am crazy joyful, like a little girl wanting to squeal and celebrate something big.  Care to join me?  We can enjoy friends, eat pumpkin pie with way too much whip cream, and celebrate all the goodness of our God!  I mean isn't that what Christmas is really all about (besides the whip cream of course)

As for me, I am crazy hard to shop for.  Ask my family.  And there is something that is goofy silly, but something that I would love this year for Christmas in July.  500 of them to be exact.(I have no idea why 500, it just seems like a quirky thing to reach for, to unwrap this year.)

You see when I started this little puddle where I splash and share God's good stuff in my life, I had no idea people would wade across the wide internet to find me, read, and come back.  The puddle grew stagnant for a while as we transitioned back to life in the United States.   Yet people still rolled up their pant legs and jumped in with me.

This lady is back in full splash mode (think armed with a super soaker) So jump in, splash around, and let's plum all get drenched in God's goodness.   Let's see if we can reach 500 fellow splashers ... you know anything is possible, we have bought a water buffalo together.

You're almost there!! 500 is so close you can smell it. I would be your follower about twenty more times, but that would defeat the purpose, right? Shoot.

I just joined you and you only need 2 more. Or maybe one more, I'm not sure if they counted me or not. I love your heart and your blog!

You visited my blog today and I was returning the favor. I was looking over your blog and saw we are on the same page so I became a follower. Then I read your post about reaching 500. Glad you make it. I was #501. Keep up the great work. I also added you to my RSS reader.
