I Wonder Wednesday

Hello! Anyone out there?! Anyone notice I've been gone a week? Maybe not.  I'd like to say I was in Hawaii being romanced by Mr. Santos, but he and I have just been selling Christmas trees and sipping hot chocolate.  This is our second year.  Perhaps it will become tradition.

So many times I have sat down to start blogging and the phone will ring, or the children will beckon, or all the inspiring posts I have thought of will fly right out of my head.

I was wondering...

What are you up to lately?

I was also wondering...

How are you focusing on the true meaning of Christmas?

I'm wondering why some Christians don't like Christmas?  Some friends have even encouraged me to not celebrate it at all...something about it not being commanded in the Bible, etc.  Perhaps they get irritated or dismayed with the commercialism and the stress of all the events.  I think it is natural to have the enemy distract anyone who might focus on the truth.

But Christmas is simple "Glory to God in the highest and on earth PEACE, goodwill toward men."

That's how we celebrate it at The Santos Times.  Simply.  Lights. Hymns. Quiet moments of reflection. Yummy treats.  Giving.

I was wondering...

Is there anyone I should invite to our Christmas program at church?

I'm wondering if I will meet my nephews before they are too old for me to "eat them up." (with hugs and kisses)

I'm wondering what I should give my Naomi for a Christmas gift.  I've got a gift picked out for Sophia and Noah...but what for Naomi?

I'm wondering who will visit the farm tomorrow?  Every day is so interesting.  I love our customers.  I always remember that quote you've all read here know the one...

"You don't have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body." c.s.lewis

It reminds me to pray for them.  It reminds me to smile and to see if there is any way I can go an extra mile with them.

I'm wondering if my children will be able to memorize their verses by Sunday night...I hope so.  They are going to recite them in the Christmas program.

I'm wondering when I should order the pupusas and tamales for our Christmas eve dinner?

What are you wondering about?

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John 1:14


  1. Mrs. Santos,

    I did a wondering post today at my blog as well.

    As far as Christmas goes, I think there are many mixed feelings about this holiday. I have to admit that I even have my "doubts" about it, which I will not go into details on a public blog.

    Anyway, take care, and I look forward to hearing from you again in the near future.

  2. Hello LR~

    We just missed each other. I left a comment over at your place.

    Do you think your "doubts" about Christmas could be a more subtle distraction from the enemy? Anything to get our focus off the great gift of God.

    This is not to say people SHOULD celebrate Christmas, but that our focus should always be on Jesus, what He is doing and what He wants us to do - love Him and our neighbor.

    Love to you, and thank you for sharing your thoughts.

  3. It's about time you posted! Glad to hear you. Thanks for the great post. Miss you.
