I hope that you all have had a wonderful Christmas Day! Our Christmas celebration began on Christmas Eve, attending the candlelight worship service. I was really inspired to continue to allow God’s light to shine through me and felt thankful for the gift of Christ, His birth, death, and resurrection. We sang traditional Christmas songs of worship. In my heart, I sang an old song that I learned in elementary school, God is so good. He really is! When I think of how He has blessed me, guided me, loves me, cares for me, and I could go on and on. I just want to sing, “God is so good. Oh so good to me!”
My children are older now and Santa was not a major player in celebration this year, as in the past. They are appreciating more the “reason for the season.” And the magic of Christmas is still palpable. I enjoy sharing this time with my family, attending service, gift giving, sharing the Christmas breakfast (our new tradition). It was such a wonderful opportunity to just love and be loved. Below are some highlights from our family celebration of Christmas.
The greatest gift is Christ, our Savior. We can show our appreciation by how we serve and love others, as He does for us. Give the gift of love. Merry Christmas!
