Whew.... how the days fly! I cannot believe it is almost December! How quickly the trees go from this;
I have always loved winter...
And most importantly, the birth of our Dear Savior, Jesus Christ!
He is the reason for this Season... what a wonderful reason to celebrate!
“The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Emmanuel”—which means, “God with us.” Matthew 1:23
Praise the Lord for his unending love.
Christmas time has many other special memories as well.
Over the years, my family has picked up many Christmas traditions... one of the most special being Christmas stories. Almost every evening, we read a story from the Christmas In My Heart books, by Joe L. Wheeler. Some of the books we have had through fires, and floods; some are burned and pages are falling out. But we cannot bring ourselves to get new books; because after we read each story, we write a little about the going-on-s of the day. For example: We read the story, "The Real Christmas Spirit" while we were in Ohio. We wrote; Theo's (a resturaunt) with a friend; Donuts for dinner. Very cold.
These books hold very special memories... memories that should be shared.
We have about 20 of them, and over all the years have picked MANY favorites that we read each year. I am thinking about doing some posts with some of our favorites. What do y'all think? Maybe 2-3 a week until Christmas. If y'all are interested, please leave a comment. ;)
Have a blessed day, y'all!
