My favorite Christmas Song

O Holy Night

O holy night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of our dear Saviour's birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
'Til He appear'd and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees! O, hear the angels' voices!

O night divine, O night when Christ was born;
O night divine, O night, O night Divine.

Led by the light of Faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.
So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming,
Here come the wise men from Orient land.
The King of Kings lay thus in lowly manger;
In all our trials born to be our friend.

He knows our need, to our weakness is no stranger,
Behold your King! Before Him lowly bend!
Behold your King, Behold your King.

Truly He taught us to love one another;
His law is love and His gospel is peace.
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother;
And in His name all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us praise His holy name.

Christ is the Lord! O praise His Name forever,
His power and glory evermore proclaim.
His power and glory evermore proclaim.

I am still thankful

A few weeks after thanksgiving and I’m still feeling very thankful/grateful for all of my blessings. This is a good thing! I think we can get spoiled and forget that there are people in this world and even in our own neighborhoods without proper food, clothing, or shelter. This year I asked my vendors to make donations on my behalf or to donate my corporate schmoozing gifts to shelters. I really honestly don’t need anything. I’d much rather feed a family a holiday dinner for $15 than to receive a box of chocolates that I know I’ll regret eating later on anyway. So this year while you’re out in the shuffle and bustle of the Holiday season – Throw some change in the salvation army bucket, buy a gift for a child in need or donate to your local food bank. You really can make a difference.

It’s been a while since I updated my blog. I know, I know! Bad Jeni :o) The last few weeks have been pretty busy with work but I was very blessed to be able to go visit Denver for the Thanksgiving Holiday. I know it’s a little late but I thought I’d list the things that I’m thankful fro this year.

God – I am so thankful to know God and have a relationship with Him. He is the center of my life and without Him I have nothing. I am so blessed to find hope in this hopeless world with Christ.

My family – I have the most amazing family on the planet!! I love you all! I also am the proud aunt of THE CUTEST KIDS IN THE UNIVERSE. They really are :o)

My church Family – I am blessed to have been adopted here in Sacramento by some pretty incredible people.

My friends – I have some of the best friends in the world. All have been hand selected by God and placed in my life.

My country – While I may not agree with the current political climate in this country, I feel blessed to live in one where we have the choice and right to change or screw things up.

My health – there are so many people who aren’t well right now. I thank God daily that my family and I are happy and healthy!

My job – sometimes it’s busy and sometime it’s a pain but I really have been blessed with favor from God at my job. I’m also very thankful just to HAVE a job in this economy.

My car – It’s paid for :o)

My condo – I have a renter who pays on time!

My apartment in Sac – I have a garage :o)

I had a great time in Denver! I’m so glad I was able to catch up with so many of you. Hopefully I’ll get to see those that I missed when I’m back for Christmas.

The weekend is over

Ahhh it’s Monday again and I’m totally exhausted from my weekend. I stayed out until 5 am for the first time in YEARS… Probably since I was 21 or 22. Man I’m old!! I went down to Stockton to hang out with some friends and some how was convinced (still not quite sure how it happened) into midnight bowling followed by “breakfast” at IHOP at 3:30 am. Needless to say I was useless for most of Saturday and had to take a power nap between services yesterday to keep from falling asleep on my feet.

On the sad side of things my friend Jo’s dad passed away on Thursday. Please pray for him and the family while they go through this trial. It’s been very difficult for all of them.
