Merry Christmas, my Gentle Reader.
Today will be a busy day at our house, as we exchange a few gifts and eat a special meal and celebrate the birth of the Christ Child, amidst the chores and the bustle of everyday. The chickens will still need to be fed, of course, and the dogs, cats, the goose, and the men. Just joking about the men part. Kind of.
We’ll have waffles and fruit for breakfast, and then lasagna, salad, garlic bread for dinner. I like to have something all ready, that I can pop in the oven, so I don’t have to stand out in the kitchen for long. There are so many other things to do.
We’ll eat ice cream for dessert. And Christmas cookies, natch.
Through it all, we’ll be thanking God more than usual, for that bitty baby who was actually God, and came down to endure a life and death on Earth, just so we would have the opportunity to accept the gift of forgiveness of our sins.
So, so thankful.
“For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.“
“And he will be called Wonderful Counselor,
Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” –Isaiah 9:6
“Prince of Peace.”
Prince of Peace.
Dear ones, I hope you have lots of Christmas fun, and I hope the peace of Christ will rule in your hearts today. I hope when you fall into your bed this night that your head will be swimming with new Christmas memories, and that you’ll have a big ole’ goofy smile on your face. Honestly, I do.
I appreciate you, my Gentle Readers, I really do! Thank you for checking in so often, thank you for your sweet comments and your “shares” and “likes.” Thank you for the privilege of getting to know many of you through your questions and observations. Thank you for pushing a bit for me to do better
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Now go out there and have a Merry Christmas and a very, very prosperous and Happy New Year!
