I can't believe that Christmas is in 2 days! Time goes by fast! I was waiting to write because I wanted to include a picture of the girls in their Christmas dresses but we still haven't managed to do that. I will post a picture of them after the holidays!
Abby is very excited about Christmas-she wants Santa to bring her a baby doll. Lyla is excited about the presents and bows! I have had to re-wrap several gifts and none of the presents under the tree have bows now!
Christmas is always a very busy time but I hope that all of you can find time to remember the true meaning of Christmas and to cherish your friends and family. Please pray for those who will not be with their families this Christmas. There will be children celebrating in a hospital room instead of their living room. Pray that God brings them and their families comfort, peace, and strength. Remember them when you feel stressed about all you have to do and all the places you have to go. I know that I plan to soak up every minute with my girls over the next several days!
At our church Christmas program, our beautiful and talented teen girls sang the song "The Gift". It has stuck with me all week long and kept my mind focused on the reason I celebrate this joyous holiday. I would like to share the chorus with you.
He was the Son God sent to one and all
Put on this earth to hang there on that cross
Born to die so we could live
He had the birthday, we got the gift
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!
