I have been putting off this post for a couple of days. Trying to put a different spin on Christmas pictures is hard. I am sure you are tired of reading about all the presents, family gatherings, etc! But I just can't come up with a way to make this topic fresh for y'all! Maybe it's the lack of sleep... No, I slept 6.5 hours straight last night (thank you LuLu!). Maybe its the 4 kids eating at my brain all day... Naw, they are pretty good AND Nate has been working a bunch from home. Perhaps, just maybe, it's because Christmas IS truly all about the presents and gatherings... Now we are onto something! But not the presents Santa brings. And not the family gatherings of duty. Christmas is about the present and gathering that can only come from our Savior's birth. The gift of Eternal Life and the gathering of those from afar, just to pay tribute and bring gifts. Gift giving not out of obligation, but out of respect and honor. Family gatherings not out of duty, but because we love each other and deeply desire to connect with one another.
I hope you enjoy seeing our December as much as we did living it!
