The older I get.....

.....the simpler my holiday preparations become...
the closer I feel to old friends as I write my CHRISTmas cards...
the more I cherish the oldest ornaments...
the more fondly I remember CHRISTmases past...
the longer I hold on to a holiday hug...
the more I realize CHRISTmas is a matter of the heart...
the tighter my throat gets when I sing "Silent Night"...
the more I enjoy giving than receiving...
the more I try to see CHRISTmas through the eyes of a child...
the longer I sit at night in the glow of the CHRISTmas tree...
the more wondrously beautiful the CHRISTmas story is...
the deeper my awe at God's infinite love...
the More I Love CHRISTmas!!!
(this was the message in a CHRISTmas card we received)

Ephesians 1:17
I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus CHRIST,
the Father of glory, 
may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know HIM!!!

Breathing in Jesus,

Deb
