Merry Christmas my friends!
I’m like a kid on Christmas eve, oh wait, today IS Christmas Eve and some might say I am childlike or a kid at heart. 🙂 It’s not feeling much like Christmas here in Colorado, the mountains are finally seeing some snow, but Denver hasn’t had any! Boo, no white Christmas for us.
Regardless, I love celebrating the day of my Savior’s birth. The best part of all is slowing down, pondering the reason we celebrate, reading the Christmas story and spending time with family and friends. This sweet video of the Christmas story is one of my all time favorites! Brilliant, they won’t be expecting that!
I hope you can slow down and if you cannot be with family or friends, spend some quiet moments taking in the real reason for this season. Receiving the greatest gift the world has ever been given!
“Don’t be afraid. I’m here to announce a great and joyful event that is meant for everybody, worldwide: A Savior has just been born in David’s town, a Savior who is Messiah and Master.”
Luke 2:11 (MSG)
Can you imagine what it was like to be one of those shepherd’s??!! I love this song by Joy Williams and I hope it brings you joy as well.
