A little love list!

There are 5 things (among MANY) I love about the Christmas season:

First and foremost, the birth of Jesus. By far the best gift we'll ever receive.

Christmas cards.

The precious time spent with family.

Christmas songs:

There are a few Christmas songs that I just LOVE LOVE LOVE.

We sang this at church yesterday. So beautiful!

Labor of Love

Mary did you know?

Christmas offering

Grown-up Christmas List

This song is so beautiful, and our lists definitely change as we get older, huh?

Christmas Shoes.

Let me just say that I know a majority of the human population do not like this Christmas song because it’s sad and depressing. But it makes me cry EVERY time. This song just says so much about the human spirit and what Christmas is all about.

And lastly, but certainly not least.

Oh, it's going to be a SAD day come the end of December when this is no longer on TV.

Nothing beats some good Christmas movies.

But you know what.... ALL this stuff is wonderful, but doesn't compare to the peace and joy we find through Jesus Christ during the holiday season and ALL year round.

Pray you are taking the time to slow down, take in everything, and not letting it pass you by!

From heaven we look for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, Philip. 3:20

i have always loved the Christmas Shoes song but even better is the book. It is so touching and there are a few sorta sequels too that are wonderful, quick Christmas reads!

I love "Mary Did You Know". It is one of my favorites!

I have to say I'm part of the people who don't like "Christmas Shoes". Way too sad. I can't take it!

My kids think I'm so mean because I make them switch stations if the "shoes" song comes on the radio. But you already knew of my aversion to it, didn't you? :)

I was commenting on a blog a bit ago and your comment was right above mine. My youngest was sitting by me and glanced up at my computer screen, saw your picture and said, "Hey, is that the girl that goes with Taco?" Seriously, they LOVE your dog!!!
