In Thanking Jesus, we open our hearts to His will. We acknowledge His position and power. He is the Creator of the Universe, and yet He came as a baby and lived among mankind. He grew up to pay the ultimate price: Death on a cross ~ separation from His Father God ~ resurrection and restoration. Through His Gift, we are offered the gift of eternal life.
This Christmas, I pray that you will accept His gift and ultimately, say "Thank You".
This is what the Christmas Tree looks like after you show 4 kids how to "finger crochet" a chain...

Alex didn't totally agree with the timing of his being awakened! The night before, I had told the kids: "Don't even come out of your rooms until 7am." They took that literally and at exactly 7:00am Christmas morning, we heard footsteps, elephants rather, coming down the stairs!
