Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! Unfortunately I don't have a photo to share. I've been sick these past few days and haven't had the energy to create. Just getting off the sofa takes all my energy. I'm feeling somewhat better this morning and am praying for much improvement throughout the day. I don't want to miss Christmas Eve service at church tonight. The Christmas Eve service has to be my favorite service all year. The Children's Ministry at our church, along with help from other church members, share their presentation of the Christmas Story.

I remember my participation in the Christmas Story as a child in our church. They are such wonderful memories. Whether it be playing the part of an angel, or Mary, or a shepard, it was
being able to participate in telling the story of the birth of our Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ.

I think of Mary and what it must have been like knowing you were carrying God's son. What it must have been like to raise God's son.

Having memories of Christmas time with family and friends is nice, but when those memories include celebrating the birth of Jesus, it just magnifies the joy and wonder of the season that much more.

So from my home to yours,
Prayers, Blessings and MERRY CHRISTMAS!
