It's hard to believe Christmas is this Thursday! I guess without snow and real cold weather, it doesn't seem like it should be here yet, but it is! I put up our tree this year and the manger scene, got my shopping done early, mostly from catalogs, and even bought some Christmas cookies yesterday!
We have a quiet Christmas around here. Sometimes I miss the family get-togethers and not having children makes for a lot less fun, but it is a relaxing time for us. We exchange gifts, give our pets something special and just enjoy the time together watching movies or going for walks looking at the neighborhood lights.
I do look forward to going to the Christmas Eve service at church which is always uplifting. It was a blessing to see two of the kids in my Sunday School class get baptized this morning, but was a bit disappointing that I only had two in my class today. Guess some families have their family Christmas gatherings today.
We wish all our readers a very Merry Christmas!
