It was a white Christmas!! A couple inches of snow yesterday and five today :-)
I'm treasuring the holiday time with my sister, as her wedding draws closer and closer. Things will change soon, so I'm extremely thankful for the time we get to spend together now.
One of the things I love about Christmas is that it's not just one day -- in fact, the 25th is sometimes kind of anti-climactic. But it's a season, the only holiday that gets its own season :-) The whole month is full of anticipation and "Christmas spirit." I love it.
And man, I love Jesus. How totally cool to think that even though Christmas isn't always CLEARLY about Him, really, under it all, it is all because of Him. Without God Himself choosing to leave heaven and come walk on a sinful earth..... there would be no Christmas... there would be no cross and Easter.... there would be no today. But He cared enough to come. And that's awesome.
