Christmas Thoughts

What would a birthday party be if you didn't invite the birthday boy to the party?

This simple question, posed weeks ago by Melinda, started us thinking of intentional ways we could invite Jesus to His birthday party - Christmas. Many of our traditions have remained, some have left, new traditions are arriving this year.... through it all we've asked ourselves over and over this season, "How are we inviting Jesus to the party?" and "Does this help us Celebrate JESUS?" To be continued....

Merry Christmas to you and yours....may you have a blessed day as you celebrate the coming of Christ into our universe, our homes, our lives, and His future coming for His bride, His church... May you be aware again of how very much life has changed because of His coming, this event we celebrate today and throughout the year.

The coming of Jesus in the past to our universe, the coming of Jesus daily into our lives, the coming of Jesus in the future to take His bride home, what a Messiah we have. He truly is our past, our present and our future hope.

Happy Birthday, Jesus. May you feel welcomed and honored today, and every day, in our family.

Bre is home!
Krista will be home in 2 days
Jamin and Josiah will be home in 4 days
