What a fun and magical time of year! I enjoy the beautiful colored lights and other decorations, the excitement of children, and the anticipation of adults who are looking forward to great times with family and friends to share meals, gift exchanges, and worship.
In a while I’ll grill some tasty rib eyes and we will enjoy them with our Monroe kids and grand kids for our evening meal after church. We will go to a Christmas Eve Service at their church and then tomorrow morning we will worship with our church family at 10 o’clock. Then in the evening we are having friends over for chili and conversation.
So, as you can see, at our house there is nothing big, nothing fancy, just a family enjoying God’s blessings and celebrating the birth of Jesus our Lord.
My hope is that the grace of Christmas, with all its promises, be yours throughout the year. May the wonder of God’s lavish love for sinners be with you always. From our home and our hearts, Carol and I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and prosperous New Year.
Thank you for reading GraceDigest and for your encouragement over what has now become years.

Wishing you and yours also a blessed Christmas and a Happy New York filled with many blessings in 2012.
