It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here!
I have SO MUCH enjoyed decorating for Christmas this year! In years past, I’ve been responsible for decorating our church at Christmas time, and the busyness of that meant that our house didn’t receive very many decorations. This year, however, I am not in charge of decorating at the church, and I have so much enjoyed putting that extra time into decorating our home. I love the outcome!
For the first time ever, we’ve been using our fireplace this year. I can’t believe we haven’t used it before…we love it! Nothing sets the Christmas tone more than a decorated house, a roaring fire, a cup of coffee or hot cocoa, and little ones sitting around listening to the stories from our Advent activities.
So thankful for this time of year…a time dedicated to celebrating the birth of our Savior. Amidst the busyness, may we NEVER forget the true meaning of CHRISTmas. Thank you, God, for Baby Jesus!
