Only 6 more days until Christmas!! Where did that come from? It's my favorite time of the year. I have fond memories as a child of my mother's enthusiastic joy at this time of year. She planned for months, so that we could have a nice Christmas. And I don't ever remember being disappointed in the slightest. She made warm gingerbread and we would build a gingerbread church with stained glass windows and candy trees and trims.
There was always fruit and nuts and lots of presents. But then we never let all the tinsel and sparkle get in the way of the real meaning of Christmas. We always remembered that Christmas day was a birthday celebration for the greatest gift of all. It is my prayer that I will always carry this tradition for my family as well. We are ever thankful for God's gift of a Savior. Here's hoping that you will all have a Merry and Blessed Christmas season.
