I hope everyone had a wonderful and blessed Christmas! I’m still recovering from the amount of kindness and generosity that overwhelmed us this holiday season. It’s simply amazing to be surrounded by people that love and care for us so much.
We had a wonderful time preparing for the celebration of Jesus’ birth! We covered all the bases…decorating the house, putting up the trees, baking sugar cookies, decorating a gingerbread house, braving a white-out snow storm to attend the Christmas eve candlelight service and of course baking a birthday cake for baby Jesus. And even though our tree now holds no decorations below the 3 foot line, our gingerbread house collapsed miserably, and several pieces of Jesus’ birthday cake went missing before we could sing…it has been one of the most beautiful holidays I can remember.
Surrounded by love ones. Celebrating the birth of our Lord. It’s a beautiful thing. And I’m left feeling completely overwhelmed by the blessings that God continues to pour out over our lives. I pray your holiday season has you finding yourself in a similar situation. Merry Christmas, my friends. Have a wonderful and safe New Year. I look forward to what 2010 brings for us all!
