Looking forward to Christmas!

I know it isn't even November yet but I am really looking forward to pulling out the boxes of Christmas decor and fluffing our home! I love Christmas, the gift wrapping, cookie baking, the smell of cinnamon, the festive atmosphere everywhere, the attitude of goodwill and above all the GIFT from God to us that is the Reason for the Season. The wonder of the fact that God sent His Son as a tiny baby for us. For us! Lowly sinners who deserved nothing! And God loved us so much he was willing to send His Son to be our Savior. How humbling, how precious, how amazing! That Jesus came, grew to adulthood here, was totally sinless, and was willing to follow the will of the Father and become the ultimate sacrifice by which we can all be saved!
May we all remember, through all the hustle and bustle of the season, the shopping, cooking, wrapping, planning, and creating, the REAL meaning of the season. Focus on the Manger and beyond to the Cross! Blessings to you all.

Big Sister made this last year as an art project. I love creative things that have a timeless meaning!
