Christmas Memories . . .

Christmas is 2 days away.
I hope your shopping is complete, and you're
almost finished baking goodies and wrapping the presents.
Now, it's time to relax and reflect on Christmas memories.

It's wonderful to recall being in Christmas plays
at church, singing familiar Carols that
tell the true meaning of Christmas.

Remember the fun you had as a child
leaving cookies and milk for Santa?

When it was time for bed you couldn't fall asleep
because you were so excited!

You couldn't wait until Christmas morning
to see if Santa left you a special gift
under the tree. You woke up before daylight
and rushed into the living room.

Then, when you're a parent you get to experience
the innocent joy your child has during the wondrous season of celebration.

Now, as a grandparent I'm looking forward
to watching Ethan learn about this glorious time of the year.

Merry Christmas everyone!
God bless you and yours!

I was pondering Christmas' past today...We have had some great ones. Ours will be small and quiet this year...but this will be very special as we enjoy the day together.

Thanks for sending that song out yesterday. It is special. I loved that a father and daughter performed together. And the message was a wonderful reminder.

Merry Chrismas!
