I love December, the lights, the smells, Christmas music and the best thing of all is Jesus birth. Its not about the gifts and running around till you are exhausted, its about a gift we didnt deserve, but we were given, for free, a baby being born in a manger, that one day would give His life for us. What more could we ask for. I pray you all have a Merry Christmas and may God bless you richly in the New Year.
