Merry Christmas!

Christmas time is a special time of year. I love to bake all kinds of goodies adding that oh so important ingredient, love. While I am baking I reflect on what Christmas really means to me.

With joy I reflect on Christmas past when as a child I saw everything in a different light. And don't we see the that same glimmer of light in our own children's eyes on Christmas day? I dream that in years to come our children will look back on the memories we've made as I do now with the same joy in their hearts.

I pray for peace as I reflect on Christmas present where there is conflict in our nation. I also say a prayer of Thanksgiving that we as a nation have come together as one through our faith in God and each other. Coming together is just the beginning.

As I reflect on Christmas future, I remember its the special things in life that make it mean so much. If we let these precious things go, we lose our hope and love. I hope and pray that no person shall be without the joys, peace, and love that I have come to realize in my life throughout the years.

This Christmas I wish you all love. Love has it's place in everything. So, above all love one another. Enjoy yourselves. These are the good old days you're going to miss in the years ahead. Remember, love is not a matter of counting the years, it's making the years count.

Hope you have had a Blessed Christmas!

P.S. Check back tomorrow for the instructions on how to make the beautiful ornament above.
