It was Christmastime.

My parents and I were getting ready to walk into a magical, olden-time Christmas village. I was pushing my stroller, with our infant son snuggled up inside. It was cold and snowy – the perfect time to visit the Christmas village. This was a tradition. We loved always coming here, and I was excited to be joining my family for the tradition again!

I pulled out my camera and was ready to start snapping pictures when a bright red, “no card in camera,” message blinked back at me.

Tears welled up in my eyes and a heavy cloud filled my chest. With a lump in my throat and trying to keep my tears at bay, I said out loud, “The camera card is not in my camera.”

“It’s okay, Lydia. You can use my camera,” my dad replied.

Rationality left me, and I lost it. Tears erupted down my cheeks, as a panicked feeling overtook me.

“No! I have to use my camera! You don’t understand. I need to take perfect pictures. I need to capture everything perfectly for Evan! He’s never been here. He’s your only son-in-law who has never seen Christmas Village and will once again not get to see it! I have to get pictures for him, so that he can experience it somehow!” By now, I was sobbing, irritable and a ready to just grab our son and go back to my parents’ house. I suddenly didn’t want to be there anymore.

My best friend had been standing next to me and gently put her arm around me. She hugged me and calmly suggested that we go to the car and check to see if I had left the camera card in the camera bag. We did just that and sure enough, I found my camera card and suddenly felt incredibly silly.

Why did I behave that way? What was wrong with me? 

My husband had purchase furosemide lasix just two weeks prior. On top of that, we had a newborn – our first. It wasn’t that something was wrong with me. It’s just that I was . . . lonely.

It wasn’t until that irrational outburst that I realized how lonely I was feeling.

Christmas time is when families are supposed to come together, not be pulled apart. It just didn’t seem right to enjoy Christmas and everything that comes with it, without my best friend. There was a hole in my heart that nobody in my family could fill.

It didn’t matter what traditions we did or where we went, I was constantly reminded of the reality that my husband was not there to enjoy it with me. Instead, he was on the other side of the world, in a combat zone, with no good form of communication. I didn’t even know if I would be able to get a phone call on Christmas Day.

The whole holiday just felt empty.

Without the man I loved, I almost just wanted it to go away. I wanted to just curl up and hibernate until New Year’s Day had come and gone. Maybe that sounds selfish. But, the loneliness engulfed me, and I was ready to get this deployment done and over with.

This is the second year my sister is having to face Christmas order lasix online cheap. I see the same flood of emotions sweep over her. But, she doesn’t have an end to look forward to. This is her new normal. Loneliness does not discriminate. It doesn’t just hang around during the holidays, but it feels more prevalent on the holidays . . . the time when everyone is supposed to be together.

If you are feeling lonely this Christmas, whether it’s because of a deployed spouse or a lost loved one, can I offer some encouragement?

It’s okay to cry. 

Don’t let anyone tell you that it’s not okay to cry. Crying is a normal reaction to loneliness. Go ahead and cry. And don’t feel like you need to apologize for it.

You don’t have to be strong or pretend you’re not feeling the way you are.

Sometimes it’s easier to just put up a wall to forget the emotions and set aside that lonely feeling. But, all that does is create a dam that is bound to break down later on. Honestly, the people around you understand, for the most part. They know that you most likely will be more emotional without your spouse. It’s okay.

It’s okay to lean into your friends (and family) for support. 

Even if some of the people around you don’t truly understand what you’re going through, others will at least be more sensitive to it. I’m so thankful for my friend who wrapped who arms around me and helped gently pull me back to reality. She didn’t tell me to knock it off. She didn’t say that I was stupid for crying or for being irrational. She simply hugged me and let me have my moment. Then, she helped. Find that friend or family member who will let you cry without trying to fix anything – that friend who will be understanding even when she doesn’t understand.

Remember that God is with you and loves you. 

He is holding you with His strong arms, and He feels the pain of your loneliness. Praise the Lord that we have a God who understands our afflictions and feels our pain!

verse

Tragedy struck our family this Christmas, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t still reeling from it. I keep finding myself in a strange fog that tries to suffocate, despite the promises of God that are constantly swimming around in my head. I can only imagine how my sister and her children must be feeling.

It was just days before Christmas . . .

 “I’m so sorry to hear about your brother-in-law this morning. I’m praying for your sister and your family.”

I stared at the text in disbelief and gulped in air as panic rose in my throat. I rubbed my tired eyes and read the text again. Yes, it said what I thought it said. I then scrambled to find out what she was talking about, even though I was pretty sure I knew. Little did I know that my family had been trying to get ahold of me and, for some reason, the calls weren’t coming through.

My oldest sister’s husband had suddenly passed away.

12309709_10156444743645647_3445948389443834771_o

My fear became reality. I kept sucking in air to fight back the dam of tears that was on the brink of exploding.

My sister had texted the night before, saying that she and her husband were at the ER because he was experiencing excruciating pain. We had stopped everything to pray for him. But honestly, I think everyone in my family had a bad feeling in the pits of our stomachs. Something just didn’t feel right.

“Becca, I just want you to know that we’re still praying. I’m so sorry your family is having to go through this.”

I had no idea that my last text would be sent a mere hour before his passing.

“Babe! Babe! Harley . . . he . . . Harley passed away last night.” I shook my husband awake, panic filling my voice and heart.

Evan jolted upwards, “No! No!”

I couldn’t hold it back anymore. The dam exploded and sobs racked my chest. “Those poor kids. My poor sister. Oh, my sister! Those kids! Why? Why, God, why?” Evan wrapped me up as I heaved.

It’s amazing the confusion that tragedy suddenly brings. The pain of this world is always confusing, and the “why” bounces around like a ping-pong ball. The “why” is what causes many to not believe in God. It’s what causes many to fall away from Him. I’ll admit that I struggle with the “why.” I don’t know why, and I don’t know if I’ll ever understand. Why would God allow my sister’s family to lose their husband and father at such a young age? My nieces and nephew are now without a father. My sister is suddenly without a husband.

12307389_10156444745200647_978401475556725873_o

This Christmas ended up being filled with a lot of grief, yet there was an abundance of love.

I got to witness that love through my sister and the people in her life. You never realize the impact you’ve had on people until there is a loss. I’m pretty sure my sister was unaware of the multitude of lives she and her husband laid imprints on until this past Christmas. People from all over the world started showering her and her children with overwhelming love and support. I watched a church community rise up and meet their needs in the most tangible ways. It was both breathtaking and humbling. It caused me to stop and think . . . Have I made such an impact?

To know anything about my brother-in-law, Harley, you’d have to step inside his tall, 6’8” frame and see the world from above. He had a way of making people look beyond him to Christ. When you tilted back your head to look up at him, you couldn’t help but keep looking upward. Perhaps that’s why God made him so tall. God used him as a physical example of a life pointed towards heaven.

Before Harley’s funeral, my sister had asked me to write a eulogy to be read at his memorial service. As I thought back over the twelve years that he and my sister were married, I kept coming back to one thing – his fervent trust in God’s plan . . .


“By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.” This verse in Hebrews adequately describes Harley, as (many might not know) he was like a modern day Abraham. A couple times over the past 12 years with his wife and family, he felt God leading him to “go” even though he did not know where he was going or how the details would work out. But, like Abraham, he obeyed and trusted that God would take care of him and his family. It wasn’t easy. Going to a new place and not knowing the details is never easy. Yet, Harley continued to trust God and His plan, knowing it would all work out for glory of his Heavenly Father.

This is how he always approached life . . . with quiet, fervent faith. Some men take on life with a fiery vigor, leaving a path wherever they go. But, this was not how Harley approached it. He was special. This “gentle giant” had a way of quietly and gently leading every life he touched. His silent footprints were everywhere and it usually was only several moments after the fact that you knew he had been there and were overwhelmed by the awesome impact he had. He loved the Lord so much and expressed it in his devotion to his children, deep love for his wife, and care for his students. Oftentimes, during his breaks between classes, he would read his Bible and pray for his students. He truly loved them and wanted to see them accelerate, while glorifying God in the process. He cared more for their souls than their abilities, and this is how he coached as well. He pushed his team members to do their best and be their best because God expects our best.

He brought this mentality into his family by being a faithful and loving support to his wife, Rebecca, in everything she did. He was the quiet anchor who taught Becca how to relax when life was going crazy. He often asked her to just sit down and watch football (particularly Alabama football) or silly sitcoms with him, all the while insisting she sit right next to him. Harley and Rebecca did their best to make sure everything was done together as a family, even exercise. They made sure to take time to go to the park and go running and walking together. This was one of their opportunities where they could unwind and enjoy each other’s company.

But, Harley was more than just a great husband, he was an exceptional father, making sure he spent time with each of his children. He was a coach and teacher to A and D, leading them to Christ in everything they did.

184505_10156531113225647_5572644857748410388_n

He loved to lie on the floor and let Baby Girl wrestle with him while watching Wheel of Fortune with her. He enjoyed getting her to growl at he and D. He was just an all-around wonderful father who greatly loved his children.

12314734_10156444744890647_7755242225194833229_o

Harley is already greatly missed by so many. He touched lives everywhere he went, and anyone who knew him could count on him being an honest and devoted friend. He may have been quiet, but he was the kind of person you wanted on your side, loving you and encouraging you every step of the way. Now he is in the presence of his life’s devotion, his Heavenly Father. We know that if he could see the tears being shed today, he would tell us to stop crying and go watch some football.


I shared this with you so that you could get a good idea of the kind of man Harley was. Through the fog of the pain of losing him, I’m reminded of the hope we have in Christ. Though my heart is weak right now, I know there is hope because God promises it. He promises that someday my sister will be reunited with her husband and her children with their father. That hope is what carries us through. It’s what carries me through the loss of Andrew and our other babies. It’s what carries my grandmother through the loss of two husbands. It’s what carries me through the dark clouds of depression. There is hope. Hope that this pain-stricken world will pass away and God will make all things new. It was how He intended it to be. This pain was not His plan. But, He always brings purpose through the pain and one day He will wipe away all of our tears to have them never return again.

Do you have that hope? If not, do you want that hope? Please let me share it with you. Let me tell you about the love of Jesus that abounds beyond measure. Please let me meet you in your pain. I promise you are not alone. Email me. Message me. Let me tell you about God’s hope!

Is Christmas really only 10 days away?! Holy cow! Where has time gone? Anyway, lately I’ve been keeping busy making Christmas decorations for our house (as if I’m not busy enough already). I love the look and feel of homemade decor! I’m the kind of person who will see stuff at Hobby Lobby or some other place with decor and think, Hmm, I wonder if I could make that myself. 

Before deciding if I’m going to make said item, I ask myself three questions:

  • Can I make it myself?
  • Will it cost less if I make it?
  • Will it be worth my time and effort?

If I say “no” to any of those questions, then I don’t even bother. But, most times I just enjoy the challenge of making it myself. So, when I saw buy lasix 40 mg online on the Hobby Lobby website, I immediately knew I wanted to make them myself (especially since it was like $13 for 4 of them when they’re not on sale, say what?!). Since I already had everything on hand to make them, all it was going to cost me was my time. Hey! I could handle that!

IMG_0156-2

After about an hour, I had six of these adorable ornaments hanging on my tree!

You too can have your very own jute ball ornaments, and I’m going to show you how to make them! Another awesome thing about this tutorial is that you can use ball ornaments that you already have and want to dress them up or recycle them. Hey! I am all about recycling!

Here’s what you need:

IMG_0108-1

  • old ball ornaments (or small styrofoam balls)
  • twine
  • tan or brown fabric (not pictured)
  • small bells
  • red burlap
  • scissors
  • hot glue gun
  • school glue
  • brown paint
  • craft paint brushes

IMG_0118-1

First, lightly paint your bells with the brown paint. Be careful you don’t put too much on or else it will look like poop (seriously). You just want the bells to have a rust kind of look to them.

IMG_0120-1

Then, take the cap and stringing piece off of your ornament. You can just toss those and keep the ornament itself. I originally attempted to string the jute through the cap. Yeah, that didn’t work out too well. I mean, I got it to work, but it was way more work than it was worth. So, just toss that puppy!

IMG_0123-1

For the hanging loop, pretend that you don’t see the cap in the picture. I took these before I decided against using the cap and then forgot to take new pictures. Anyway, cut off a piece of your jute string, depending on how big you want your loop. Cross the ends at the bottom (like an X) and add hot glue to the ends. Insert them into the top of the ornament and add more hot glue to keep it secure. Wait for that to dry before continuing.

Now, there are two different things you can do for the next steps. I did it both ways, and the second way was incredibly faster!

Without fabric . . .

If you don’t have the fabric, follow this first portion. If you do, skip down.

ornament collage 1

Coat your ornament in the school glue. Then, attach one end of the jute at the top of the ornament with hot glue and start wrapping around your ornament at random. Occasionally add more school glue to help the jute stick to itself. Keep wrapping until you see very minimal amount of ornament poking through. (This is where doing it this way was more difficult because the ornament required a lot more wrapping. I definitely preferred doing it the other way.)

With fabric . . .

This way was much faster!

ornament collage 2

Cut off two strips of fabric. Hot glue one end of a fabric piece to the top and wrap it to the other side; hot glue that end into place. With your other piece, do the same for the exposed sides of the ornament. Then, coat your fabric in school glue. Attach one end of the jute at the top of the ornament with hot glue and start wrapping around your ornament at random. Occasionally add more school glue to help the jute stick to itself. Keep wrapping until you see minimal amount of fabric poking through. This is great because the fabric blends with the jute, so there is much less wrapping.

IMG_0144-1

Your jute ball should look something like this when you’re finished wrapping.

Now for the super easy part!

IMG_0132-1

 

Cut off a relatively thin piece of red burlap (or you can use red burlap ribbon if you have it). Make sure your piece is long enough to tie a knot and have ends hanging off. Longer is better, as you can always snip some off the ends.

IMG_0137-1

 

Finally, glue your bell on with hot glue, making sure the bottom of the bell is facing out. If you have really miniature bells, you could do two.

Then, hang it on the tree or wherever you’d like and admire your handiwork!

IMG_0157-2

Do you enjoy replicating things you see in stores?

Share some of those projects with me! I’d love to see the things you’ve made!

Random thought: Have any of you seen the movie, “Courage Mountain?” Anybody else think of that movie when they hear the word advent?

“Advent advent, a little light burns. First one, then two, then three, then four, then next, the little Christ-child at the door.”

Annnd, moving on . . .

I’ve always loved those adorable advent calendars that you can get for the month of December. When my 5-year old started asking me every day (back in November) if it was Christmas yet, I knew an advent calendar would help save me from having to repeat myself each day. But, I also wanted a fun Christmas craft to do with the kids and knew this would be great! When I told the boys about my idea, they were so excited!

advent-christmas-calendar-title-photo

Isn’t it so cute? To make this Christmas tree advent calendar, you will need:

  • a large piece or corrugated cardboard
  • pencil or pen
  • x-acto knife
  • scissors
  • Elmer’s glue
  • hot glue gun
  • a couple pieces of cardstock (or thin cardboard, like a cereal box)
  • holiday stickers (preferably ones that are square)
  • craft paint and brushes
  • gold glitter star sticker
  • red beads

Grab your large piece of cardboard and let’s get started! (I just used a side from one of our moving boxes.) You first want to cut out one of your square holiday stickers to help you determine the advent calendar windows. Using one of the stickers as your guide makes it SO much easier!

advent-calendar

Start at the top with one square – this will be your 25th window. Just trace around three sides of the sticker (top, right side, and bottom). Then, leaving enough space around the top square, draw two more squares. Keep going, adding a square to each row, until you have four squares left to draw. Below and in the middle under your row of six squares, draw one square (this is the trunk of the tree). Then, do three squares surrounding that one square (this is the tree skirt). You’ll be able to see the whole square set-up in the next picture.

advent-calendar-0

This is probably the most difficult part of the whole project. Once your squares are in place, you’re going to free-hand a Christmas tree drawing around the squares. As you can see, I also added snow piles around the trunk and tree skirt.

Now it’s time to paint!

advent-calendar-1

This is where your kids start to have fun. My boys had an absolute blast! Go ahead and let them grab brushes and paint that tree. It’s okay if they go out of the edges of the drawing because you will be cutting out the tree.

Once the tree, trunk, skirt, and snow were painted, I had the boys add “ornaments” to the tree.

advent-calendar-2

The easiest way to do the ornaments was to give my boys q-tips to dunk in the paint and then dab on the tree. They had so much fun with that! To give a more “crisp” look to the whole project, I swiped a few wisps of white paint to the tree to make it look like there was snow on the tree.

You’re then going to cut out the project. This might take a little while, as corrugated cardboard is a bit difficult to cut through. So, try to use some good, heavy-duty scissors. I did the unthinkable and used my kitchen sheers. *gasp!*

Next, trace over your squares and write the numbers on them, with 25 at the top and moving backwards from there.

advent-calendar-4

Using your X-acto knife, cut through the carboard, along the traced sides. Remember, ONLY put cuts on the three sides! They’re supposed to be like little windows/doors.

advent-calendar-5

To make sure your cuts went all the way through, try to pop open the windows. Make any necessary adjustments to have adequately opening windows/doors.

Then, place your tree on top of your pieces of cardstock, ensuring there is cardstock under every window. Open each window and, using a pen, place a dot in the center (on the cardstock). This will tell you where to put the stickers. (Also, to be sure you end up putting the tree back in the right spot, you might want to trace along various sections of the tree to have something to line up with.)

advent-calendar-6

After you’ve placed all your dots, then you can have your kids pick out and put on the stickers. Just be sure to direct them to where they go. If they’re a bit crooked, it’s okay! It just makes it that much more of their own project!

advent-calendar-7

Now, you might need to take over for the rest of the project, unless you have older children who can handle it.

Put glue on the back of the tree, being sure to not get glue on the windows. Then place the tree on your sticker-covered cardstock, doing your best to line it up with the traces you made.

advent-calendar-8

Trim the excess paper off the edges. The x-acto knife works really well if you can’t seem to get close enough to the edges.

advent-calendar-9

My favorite part is next! Spruce up your numbers with a sparkly paint. I used gold, and it came out great. Then, hot glue a red bead to each window/door. Put the beads in random corners of each window so that they look more like ornaments when you’re finished.

advent-calendar-10

Top off your tree with a large star sticker, attach a loop of string to the back, and voila! You have your very own advent calendar!

advent-calendar-14

The boys were so excited when it was all finished! They couldn’t wait to start opening the windows.

advent-calendar-11

We were behind by eight days, so they got to open several windows. They loved seeing the sticker surprises behind each window. I overheard my oldest son trying to guess what tomorrow’s sticker is going to be. He can’t wait to open tomorrow’s window!

advent-calendar-12

*Tip: Open all the windows first and then close them again, to be sure they open easily. Otherwise, the red beads will pop off while your kids are trying to pull them open.

If you are an elementary school teacher, this is a great project to do for your students. Depending on how many students you have in your class, you could have a picture of each student behind the windows. (You could make a big or small tree and start the countdown from the number of students. So, if you have 30 students, start the countdown 30 days before Christmas break and so on. I hope that makes sense.) Then, let them open the window on their day. So that the kids don’t think you chose them based on bias or preference, you can first have each child pull a number out of a hat and that will be the number day that they are. Looking back to my elementary days, I know that this is something I would have gotten all giddy about! The anticipation of waiting for your own day is so much fun!
