Merry Christmas!!

Christmas through the eyes of a four year old is priceless. Judson is so excited about Christmas. He can tell you all about the Christmas story, from Mary and Joseph had to go to Bethlehem to pay taxes to the Wise Men brought baby Jesus, Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. He has also asked some pretty tough questions. How will Santa get in our house? (we don't have a fireplace) Why do we have to buy gifts for our Angel tree girl? Why doesn't Santa bring her gifts? It has really made me think about what I want him to believe. I want him to know that Christmas is about giving because of all God has given us. I want him to know how God wants us to be generous and faithful with what he has given us. I want him to know the true reason for Christmas, Jesus. But I also love the excitement of Christmas morning, waking up to see what Santa brought!!! Baking cookies to leave for Santa. I have prayed that God would give Neal and I wisdom in knowing how to celebrate Christmas. My desire is to honor Him, no matter how we choose to celebrate.

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas. How you choose to celebrate is between you and God. He knows our hearts and that's whats important to Him!!
