yay for the meaning of Christmas!!
all the holiday-stuff has sure been fun...
shopping, wrapping, treat-making, craft-doing...
but this is the really good stuff.
the Christmas-sermon-series at church this year
has been refreshing and completely encouraging to say the least!
especially for me being right in the center of all the holiday retail-frenzy
it's been nice to be reminded of why we do what we do...
why we give..
why we love...
why we should keep on fostering hope and joy!
if God could be humble enough to come as a baby
-and live and die so that we could know God-
we could certainly humble ourselves enough to take note
and let our hearts respond with gratitude and worship!
