Today we celebrate the birth of Jesus! A child that was born in the manager and later died for us. Christmas can be a time for healing and renewed strength. A time families can join together and be in each others company. The one thing about any holiday is the family traditions.
When I was a growing child, my family and I would attend the annual Christmas Eve service. There was something so special about attending. I don’t know if it was the adorable Christmas outfit I wore that my mom picked out, the decorated church, the special music played by congregational members, or the candlelight service. Whatever it was, I was not going to miss that Christmas Eve service.
Now times have changed. I’m married. I live in a different state. And, I have another family to think about. Last night, I attended my in-laws church for their annual service. It was just like what I grew up with.
While I sat in church I sang many of my favorite Christmas songs, absorbed God’s word, and said my prayers. This year has been a year of cheer and sorrow. Today, I’m going to take time to say a few blessings that has paved a new road for my husband and I.
1. I’m blessed to have a caring and loving families, along with a phenomenal husband.
2. I’m blessed to have a guardian angel (Grandma Ann, Grandpa Alexius, Grandma Viola, Uncle John, and Uncle Kevin) watching over me.
3. I’m blessed to have a great role model like Aunt Betty to show us never to give up. You are a warrior!
4. I’m blessed to have great friendships especially one with Jason Nordmann who is away from his family this year while serving overseas to continue to fight for freedom. Thank you for all you do!
5. I’m blessed for great health and love.
So set aside any difference that you may have, gather with your families and be blessed for one another’s company. There is a Christmas spirit but you may just have to take some time and believe!
Merry Christmas to your family from ours!

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. … Continue reading
