I feel like my Christmas posts are going on forever, but since this is my way of journalling what's happening with my family, and December was a busy month, I needed to squeeze in one more and post about our wonderful Christmas Day.
I heard movement about 4:30am. Thankfully, our sweet kiddos waiting until a little before 5:30am to wake us up. They were excited! We pushed brew on the coffee pot, had everyone wash their faces and brush their teeth, start the Christmas music and then met together in the living room at our appointed spots.
Then, we stopped and had some time praying together. It still amazes us that on Christ's birthday, He bestows many gifts upon us. Not just all the wrapped presents, although those were many and wonderful, but He gave us the greatest gift of all....a relationship with God. Not only do we have eternal life in heaven, but we have a constant friend anytime of day, we have peace that only He can give, we have brothers and sisters in Christ....I really could go on and on. It was great to pause and tell Jesus "Thank you!" and "Happy Birthday!"
