Merry Christmas! I hope you and your family will have a wonderful holiday making some special memories together and remembering old memories as well. When I turn the lights on the tree I am reminded of my childhood. Waking up early in the morning, turning the Christmas tree lights on and looking at the bounty of gifts under the tree. Mom and Dad made Christmas special for us and I will always cherish the memories of the past. Opening new pjs on Christmas eve from Gram, the lights that Dad put on the house, wonderful meal mom cooked, and the many sacrifices my parents made so we could have a bountiful Christmas. Here is something I read in my Bible this morning, commenting on the manger scene, Luke 2:7, NIV. "Although our first picture of Jesus is as a baby in a manger, it must not be our last. The Christ-child in the manger is the subject of a beautiful Christmas scene, but we must not leave him there. This tiny, helpless baby lived an amazing life, died for us, ascended to heaven and will return to earth as King of kings. Christ will rule the world and judge all people according to their decisions about him. Do you still picture Jesus as a baby in a manger-or is he your Lord? Make sure you don't underestimate Jesus. Let him grow up in your life." There is no greater gift then having Jesus, the King of kings in your life.
