There’s no doubt that this family has taken advantage of every opportunity to celebrate Christmas this year. We’ve baked cookies, attended parties, bought and crafted ornaments, and prepared and wrapped gifts. We’ve cut down our tree and trimmed it.
The Elves have brought their mischief. Santa has been visited (three times!). We’ve decorated our church and our home and thanked those who volunteer their time and service throughout the year. Hot chocolate and treats have been tasted…a lot!
We’ve found the best decorated homes and ooohed and ahhhed at our favorite decorations. Christmas movies have been watched. Gingerbread men and houses have been made. We have visited friends and family. Shopping is finished. The church Christmas program has been performed.
And we are enjoying moments of remembering Jesus and His special gift to us! If none of the rest of these fun moments were there, His gift would be enough to sustain us and fill us with that special joy that we feel at Christmas time. Don’t exclude this kind of joy this season (and all through the year!). Keep it close to your heart. ❤️
