One of our family traditions at Christmastime, is a drive to look at all the Christmas lights with hot chocolates in hands and our favorite Christmas music playing. There are two areas in our town to choose from. The first is Christmas Tree Lane, which is perfect for every child: every Disney character comes to life with lights, lights, and more lights, and, until the family moved, there used to be a working miniature train that would take you down several streets free of charge. The other area is in the older, charming section of town where the trees are mature and the streets meander with traditional Christmas charm until you reach this gorgeous, life-size Nativity that catches your breath. We look forward to it every year; it's just beautiful. In years past, you would find families taking their Christmas photos in front of the manger, a family dog that accidentally got out sitting and waiting patiently among the animals, and one year there was even a little guy who climbed up and happily laid down with the baby Jesus... so very sweet and peaceful!
I wanted to take a moment and thank you for following me, and leaving such encouraging comments throughout the year. Many of you have become friends, and I hope for many more. My prayer for you this Christmas and in the New Year is ...
From my family to yours, MERRY CHRISTMAS!
"For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord."
