Merry Christmas

This is one of the most exciting times of the year for me. It is the season I love the most. To think that a holy God came down from heaven, took the form of a human baby, born in one of the lowliest places anyone can imaging, to live a perfect sinless, life, and die for our sins.

It is a sobering thought as well. What can we do to please our Lord and Savior? We can try to live a righteous life, help others, put others first, do good deeds. But more than anything HE wants us to live for HIM, give HIM our lives and tell others about the wonder of Salvation HE gave us - a free gift!

Even though my family is apart again this Christmas, I dwell in the safety of HIS love and protection. And I know my children are protected by HIM as well. What a peaceful thought.

 We even had a few snow flurries in the morning!
 Baking Christmas cookies. We made 8 diff. kinds of German cookies. Yum

 Decorating the Christmas tree
 The final touch: The Angel!
Happy Birthday, JESUS!!!!!!
