I Believe that Christmas is all about celebrating the birth of the Messiah, Jesus Christ our Lord.
When I celebrate at Christmas time, I celebrate the salvation that Jesus brought to all mankind and I celebrate my loved ones, by the giving of gifts.
I know that Jesus was not born in December and that December 25 is but a symbolic time in which we celebrate.
He still is the Reason for the Season.
When and if we celebrate isn't important, but only that we acknowledge that Jesus is the Savior of the World.
Today I am offering you a small glimpse into my little cottage.
It really is beginning to look festive.
I love this time of year.
It fills me with a yearning to have my family close around me, to enjoy a time of fun and games.
As a kid we had no family but our own mom and dad and siblings, but my folks went out of their way to make it a very happy time. A time that we will remember forever and recreate with our own families.
God decorated our city beautifully this weekend! We woke up to several inches of snow on Saturday!
It has been cold though, it was down to -9 C and with the wind they were saying it was -21 C, and it felt that cold, too!
It is meant to warm up to +6 C this week, but then our snow will melt. So, I'm hoping for +2 C, that's warm enough.
Have a wonderful day my friends!
