No matter how many calendars I have in my house, office, or electronic devices, each and every year I am literally SURPRISED at how fast the Christmas season descends upon us. This Christmas has been no exception and in some ways, has seemed to come even faster as my little girls seem to grow inches before my very eyes!
What I find so very interesting about Christmas is the fact that everyone who celebrates it does so in his or her own way. For those of us native to the north, we couldn’t possibly imagine a December in 80 degree weather. For those of you southerners, you’d probably gasp if you woke up on Christmas morning to a snow-filled sky. But yet for those of us who celebrate the wonderful birth of our Savior, the day is just as special, just as meaningful regardless of the weather, the various traditions, or the color of the grass 🙂 I personally, LOVE a white Christmas and am somewhat disappointed that there is not a trace of snow to be found for miles. I’m hoping that will change before Christmas Eve rolls around…
So regardless of how you celebrate Christmas or whether you’ll be wearing your arctic parka or your bermuda shorts, I wish you the merriest from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for reading the blog throughout this past year and I look forward to sharing more ideas and stories with each and every one of you in the coming year!
But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”~Luke 2:10-12
