I cannot help but fall in love with the cold weather for the sole reason that it means Christmas is not far off! It’s funny how suddenly I have urges to light cinnamon smelling candles, play Christmas music, and start shopping! But putting all that aside, I can’t ignore the warmth within that I feel. The love that begins to overwhelm me once Christmas grows near. All of the memories of past Christmas’ with family where we celebrate the birth of Christ with one another and honor the love and grace that God extended to us through his birth, by showing each other our love and humble gratitude for one another.
Some of my favorite memories are watching the movies “White Christmas”, “Charlie Brown Christmas Tales” and of course, “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever“! Those cold nights never
seem very cold when you have a room full of people, eating the cookies that you made with your Mom, drinking hot chocolate, all the while snuggled up with blankets, watching Christmas DVDs!

Praise God for the birth of His Son, Jesus! We give thanks for the blessings he abundantly gives!
