2019 Christmas Reflections

ChristmasEve2 (1)

Our beloved Christmas holiday is past, but the memories are precious and embedded deep in my heart and mind.  I’ll highlight some of them for you so it can be my reflection for future days.

As I stated here, we enjoyed Christmas Brunch with part of our family on the 23rd.  It was delicious, fun, and memorable!

Our menu consisted of ~ Bacon Cheddar Grits Quiche, Biscuits (made by Alli), Fried Apples, Orange Julius and Coffee. Seconds were had by all!  Yum!!

These two cuties had so much fun opening presents this year!

On Christmas Eve, my husband had a noon service at our church.  What a sweet time to gather and rejoice in the HOPE we have because Christ came.  This hope isn’t a wishful kind of feeling, but a confident assurance!  Afterwards we captured a couple of pictures in the foyer.

First my husband, Dale and me.

Then my dear friend, Kellie…

Everyone needs a friend like her!  I’ll post about that on another day.  I just know that she is a gift in herself!

We headed to Kentucky right after church to have Christmas Eve dinner and also celebrate my dad’s 87th birthday!  What  a precious time it was in my sister and brother-in-law’s home.

My mom is doing well and looking terrific after her major surgery – another reason to celebrate!

We took a drive after dinner to see this house in Lexington all decked out for Christmas.  These kind home owners are so generous with their decorations and home!  They allow people to walk right up to the front door, greet Santa on the sidewalk, and stroll through all their decorations!  It was such a fun way to end the evening!

The greatest reflection is Christ, our Savior Who came to be born so you and I could have eternal life!  That is a reality for every day of 2020!  No matter what comes, He is our Hope!

I pray your Christmas was a reflection of God’s love.
