Do you love Christmas? I do, too! So join me, and I hope you find this as much fun as I do. If you are looking for new traditions to start with your family, or wish to reminisce on lovely memories, I will try to have something on the pages to kindle the warmth and spark the joy of Christmas.
Rejoicing, building peace, renewing hope. These are all a part of the message that is Christmas. I think that is why so many love it so. I hope you will find the golden and fragrant gift of its center, as well. That is Jesus: a real person with a real love for each of us.

  I hope you enjoy the Christmas pages here, and that they contribute to your enjoyment of this special season. God's purpose in sending Jesus was to initiate His peace plan with you. He has plans of peace and blessing in store for all those who receive His Son, Jesus. I trust that all your celebrations will hold reminders of God's message for you and your family.
