the angel said unto them, “Fear not! For, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, Which shall be to all people. “For unto you is born this day in the city of David A Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, Lying in a manger. – Luke 2:10-12
I can not believe that another year has come and gone. While this past year was very busy for our family it was full of many blessings, struggles and triumphs.
We plan to spend the next few days with the family that is close and send our love to those far away and wish we could be with all of our family. I really miss my brother and sisters this year and wish we could all be together.
“And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth – Philippians 2:8-10
Next year we will be celebrating the Holidays as a family of five! I feel so blessed and can not wait for next year (well I can wait).
Tomorrow I hope that we are able to bake Jesus a birthday cake, and of course read the story of Baby Jesus and the real meaning of Christmas. It’s important for my kids to understand there is more to Christmas than Santa.
