Christmas Rewind: Because of Him

20171201_085649This is the nativity scene we put under our first Christmas tree 32 years ago. It’s rather plain and simple by today’s standards, just like the birth of a baby boy born in a stable over 2000 years ago. No grandeur, no welcoming party, no one even noticed. Just another day, just another night. But that baby boy was the Savior, the Messiah. His name was Jesus.

Our little nativity scene can still be found under our tree. It reminds us of His glory and majesty and the reason we celebrate the season.

Early Turkey Day

20171115_131100Each year in November Garrett’s school has a special Thanksgiving lunch for Grandparents. It’s exciting to see so many Grandparents taking part in the event. Laughter, smiles and hugs fill the lunchroom. And then there’s the food. Turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce, green beens and sweet potatoes definitely set the stage for the ‘big’ day next week.

There are a lot of things on my thankful list this year, but at the top are my grandchildren. I thank God for the joy that they bring to my life each day.
