Christmas is the best time of the year. Family, friends, special Advent services, the Sunday School kids (who are the cutest) and the choir. It is always a lot of work to set up the house (and the church) but is all worthwhile when the kids and the grandkids come home. I have taken a break from the stone that sharpens the pen to reflect on the birth of Christ, his coming down to earth as both man and God to save humankind.
I pray that you and you family feel the true spirit of Christmas
