Merry Christmas to all

Well, it's almost here. It is just a few days until Christmas.

All of the baking is done. We have had enough cookies and reindeer cupcakes to last us for a whole year.

Santa's sleigh is nearly packed so it's too late to get called out for choking your little brother.

The letters have been written...

... and mailed...

...and Will has been told exactly what he is getting and why.

So from our family to yours, Merry Christmas.

I pray for Christmas blessings for each and every one of you. May you experience the love of Jesus Christ this season. As I watch my children open their presents on Christmas morning, I will always be mindful that nothing I give them can begin to compare to the gift of that tiny baby born on Christmas morning. The gift of peace, grace, and eternal salvation.

Tears are falling, hearts are breaking
How we need to hear from God
You've been promised, we've been waiting
Welcome Holy Child
Welcome Holy Child

Hope that you don't mind our manger
How I wish we would have known
But long awaited Holy Stranger
Make yourself at home
Please make yourself at home

Bring your peace into our violence
Bid our hungry souls be filled
Word now breaking Heaven's silence
Welcome to our world
Welcome to our world

Fragile finger sent to heal us
Tender brow prepared for thorn
Tiny heart whose blood will save us
Unto us is born
Unto us is born

So wrap our injured flesh around You
Breathe our air and walk our sod
Rob our sin and make us holy
Perfect Son of God
Perfect Son of God
Welcome to our world
