The stockings are stuffed and hung, the gifts are wrapped, the food preparations are underway and family is beginning to arrive.. such a busy time of year. But full of so much. Full of love, laughter, excitement, joy, a bit of sadness for those that can be with us this year, and the quiet moment when we remember a baby, a manger, shepherds and the humble birth of our Lord and Savior. The reason the we gather, the reason we celebrate, the reason we are saved! It's now time to breathe, celebrate, and find joy in God's gift of salvation. Merry Christmas!!
