Christmas Traditions

Christmas, Joyful Family, Joyful Thoughts

The Family Channel at Exemplify Online is talking about Family Christmas Traditions.

Our Christmas tradition is to let the youngest open their presents first.

When our youngest was much younger, and more mobile, he really enjoyed being first.

One child plays santa and passes out all the presents.

When that is finished the youngest opens theirs as we all watch and take pictures.

Then they are free to play with what they received as we work our way up to Dad, he is last.

Now that they are teens they also like watching what everyone else received.

Ok, so what is your Christmas tradition?

I had a wonderful date w/ my son. We talked and laughed & talked and laughed. The food had a lot to be desired. My Ceasar salad had no Ceasar, his steak was a bit tough. We learned something new tho. We should order `med` instead of `med well`. How people can eat `well done` is beyond me. We were told lots of people order “extra well` done or `rare` (cow still mooing). However, Bubba got his whole meal `FREE` appetizer, salad, entree, bread, drink, (BIG savings) so I took him to Barnes`N`Noble where he got a CD & I got two Joyce Meyer books (`Approval Addiction` & `The Confident Woman`) priced down to $5 ea. from $23 ea. Today was a real blessing!!

`Come and Worship`

Whatever gets you to the feet of Jesus this weekend, do it. Meet him where you’ve met him before, and should the sky split open and your faith catch a glimpse of your glorious forever, cradle that moment in your heart as a sacred gift from a gracious God who loves you.

Who came for you. Who waits for you. Who longs for you… just you. Come and worship your King this day.
