A Special Christmas Message

What’s your favorite Christmas tradition? (really- comment and let me know! I’d love to hear)

For me, I always loved doing Journey to Bethlehem at my home town church. It was the first weekend of December, and I participated for around 20 years.

We didn’t get to participate last year, I was nervous to commit to something outside while 8 months pregnant, but we did get to go through the journey.

There were little kids in our family, and the kids were all very excited.

“Is that baby Jesus?”

They weren’t focused on what else they had going on, the weather, or what they were getting everyone for Christmas. They were focused on Jesus. I think we could all learn something from those kids!

Christmas is such a beautiful season. Can it be busy? Stressful? Exhausting? Yes- if you let it.

But it can also be meaningful. Magical. Calming.

I hope that, no matter how your Christmas looks this year, you can take a moment to read Luke 2. Remember the Christmas Story. Remember the reason that we celebrate Christmas!

From our Family to yours,

Merry Christmas.

    My favorite Christmas tradition is Jesus Happy Cake. I make an angel food or red velvet cake and decorate it with a small plastic nativity and candles. We gather the youngest children close to the cake and sing Happy Birthday Dear Jesus. The little ones blow out the candles, Grandpa prays, and then we eat. We read the Christmas story before we open gifts. While most of us were cleaning up I looked across the room and saw my 4year old granddaughter sitting with her legs crossed and Pappaw’s Bible open in her her lap. She was singing Happy Birthday to Jesus. What a true picture of sincere worship!! My heart was blessed beyond measure.
