We decorated on Saturday night (and it rained Saturday morning! We all went out in the rain and played in it, even though there wasn’t very much, just a few puddles…)
My skirt and shirt drying after getting quite wet! 🙂
Looking up the Christmas tree! (Yeah, it’s fake… we can’t really get real ones here!) Kitty has decided she likes to climb up it… and knock ornaments off… and she still hasn’t learned that if she does that, she gets squirted with water.
And sometime we’re going to make wassail, bake molasses crinkles, gingerbread, buckeyes, and maybe thumbprint cookies.
But my favorite thing…
Is thinking about God’s love for us.
And the day True Love came down.
And the day True Love died.
And the awesome miracle of the first Christmas.
Merry Christmas. 🙂
Come, Thou long expected Jesus
Born to set Thy people free;
From our fears and sins release us,
Let us find our rest in Thee.
Israel’s Strength and Consolation,
Hope of all the earth Thou art;
Dear Desire of every nation,
Joy of every longing heart.
Born Thy people to deliver,
Born a child and yet a King,
Born to reign in us forever,
Now Thy gracious kingdom bring.
By Thine own eternal Spirit
Rule in all our hearts alone;
By Thine all sufficient merit,
Raise us to Thy glorious throne.
