We had a wonderful Christmas!
We began by attending our church's Christmas Eve service which always ends with candles lit during "Silent Night." It is overwhelming for me, so much beauty and joy-- my favorite service. I like Easter a lot too, but there is such a sweet focus on God, Jesus and His birth, it is just a precious few moments.
Then we went to my Mom's house and spent most of the day there...
Rebekah opened a new sweater from Grandma!
She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”
But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”
