Merry Christmas!

My entry foyer table

For my family and I, there is a meaning to Christmas--it's all about love and giving to those we love (and, of course, to our friends and those who find themselves in need.) Why?  Because we were given an example by God Himself, when he gave us a saviour in the form of the Christ child. We didn't even know our own need, but God provided for us anyway.  When we finally saw our need, we accepted a free gift of love and forgiveness.  I, for one, am so grateful for the humble beginning of this day that we celebrate!

Angels, Mary and babe

However you celebrate,
I wish you a joyous day
and hope it is just wonderful!

The tree is beautiful but I'm loving the quilt next to it on the wall.
