Aaahhhhhhh....Christmas! I LOVE this holiday. Its my favorite time of the year. I love the parties, card sending and card getting, carols, yummy foods, sentimental videos, red and green, buying gifts AND getting them ;), Christmas trees, lights, decorations, the smell of cinnamon and cloves, ribbons and wrapping paper, newsletters, special church services, packing gift boxes for the Samaritan's Purse Operation Shoebox, the Salvation Army bellringers, holiday-themed books, and most of all, the message of God's love that is interwoven through all the expressions of joyful celebration during this most wonderful time of the year.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son [Jesus], that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

Because of His love, I'm filled with joy and freedom...a joy and freedom that overflow this blessed HOLYday season.

My prayer for you this Christmastime, is that you will know and experience in a tangible way the profound love the Father of us all have for you His blessed and beloved child. If I could give each one of you a gift this year, it would be that you would dance every day in the security that you are greatly loved by the author of love Himself.

"On with the dance!
Let joy be unconfined."
---Lord Byron
