Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas! Isaiah 9:6-7
6 For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
This is what Christmas is about, a child, a savior, this is why we celebrate, we give each other presents as a symbol of the greatest gift that was ever given to us. Ever lasting life.
Having said that, I have had a wonderful Christmas, as many of you know, we celebrate Christmas Eve, the food was plenty, the presents were overflowing and we have added to our family. Elizabeth Anne is engaged and he comes with a bonus, a daughter, I think we all know what this means. I have someone else to spoil.
Last night was nothing short of wonderful, the conversation was good, when I could get it refocused from sports talk, and everyone had a good time. After the food of course comes the presents, I have said it before, I’ll say it again, I have the best kids ever. From a Chi straightener to flannel pajamas to a fluffy dark purple robe that feels like I am wearing a cloud I love them all.
Tessa enjoyed the majority of her presents, when she got to the clothes she said why does everyone give me clothes! It was very cute and her dad quickly told her that was the best present of all because she could wear them.
Even with all of that I am thinking of the people not present, my parents, grandparents, great aunt Effie, my son, Granny Dee so many who are celebrating in heaven right now. Even though they are gone, they are still present and alive in our hearts and memories.
I hope everyone has a great Christmas, being with family, enjoying the company, the food and yes the presents. It is all part of our celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior.
