Our Christmas has been a little different this year. My youngest has had the flu or some viral bug that resembles the flu for the last 4 days. Everyone else is well , but I hate it when my kids are sick. Our house is a little more full this year due to my husband's grandmother passing away this time last year. We inherited some furniture that we really don't have room for, but don't want to part with either. Due to the overcrowding, we ended up not putting up our large tree, but instead have a little 2 ft tree-(this is so not right!) We also travel to Tennessee every Christmas to be with family, but due to bad weather and illness, we stayed home this year. All in all the holiday has made us all feel a little off. I am truly glad though that this day is not about us and our feelings and our wants and Christmas wishes. It is instead about God sending His only Son to be born of a virgin. That Son would grow into a man that would minister to so many and would eventually take on the sins of the world. Thank you Jesus for your birth, your death and your resurrection! Merry Christmas to all!
