Merry Christmas!

Is your Christmas celebration like ours, spent with those you love, overeating, not getting enough sleep, cramming each minute with activity, leaving only a small amount of time to remember the greatest gift of all, that precious baby Jesus, our Saviour, born to us so long ago? My husband reads the story in Luke and Matthew. The little ones tell their version. We bake an angel food cake and sing Happy Birthday to Jesus. Some years our grandchildren put on a pageant of sorts, more hilarious than reverent. Our time together passes quickly and I'm filled with regret that we didn't spend more time focusing on the reason for this holy season. My only comfort is that Jesus is not a once-a-year Saviour. While I'm restoring order, I thank God for His plan, for His love, vowing to do a better job honoring Him next year. If you have some tips on ways to keep the focus on Jesus, please share.

Praising God for his unconditional love and wishing you a Merry Christmas!
