Merry Christmas!

I've woken up before the others & have the quiet, still house to myself. The furnace is blowing into the cool rooms, wakening our home with warmth. The coffee is made, a simple breakfast planned of scrambled eggs with bologna & bagels. The presents surround the tiny tree, tokens of our affection & love for one another, waiting to be shared.
These are the moments of my Christmas- something offered in love,be it breakfast or a humble present. This is the Christmas that lives on in my heart all year. "This is love,not that we loved God,but that He loved us & sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins" He loved first & loves best. He shared with me all that He could give & I am so grateful, so humbled by love like that. I didn't find Him "under the tree" but I'll find Him there in the glow of giving & sharing. I can't help but raise my heart up to His in thanksgiving....
God bless you all ,dear one's, I hold you in my heart everyday of the year, just like His unfailing love holds mine- again, Merry Christmas & may you see His joy everyday!
