'Tis the Season
I've gathered quite a few Christmas memories through the years ... but having a baby on Christmas Eve 2000 pretty much tops all of them.
Christa, named in honor of her birthday, has brought much joy to our family these past 7 years.
The other day, Christa and I were sitting on the couch and she looked at me and said, "You know, Mom, sometimes I get worried."
"About what, sweetie?"
"That people will get so busy with all this other stuff that they'll forget what Christmas really is about. It's about Jesus' birthday."
Here's wishing that, in the midst of all the busyness of this time of year, you find time to remember God's gift to us: Emmanuel, God with us.
It will be quiet on this blog until the new year. I hope you all have a wonderful time with friends and family--and I look forward to reconnecting in 2008!
