On the 6th day of Christmas

On the 6th day of Christmas for us was attending Christmas morning service at church. We came home and made brunch. This is the first year we actually accomplished this. The other years we always seemed to tired or too rushed in the morning to get ready. So we made "brunch" instead of breakfast. The kids all wore their new Christmas sweaters. After service we ate oven baked french toast, biscuit/egg casserole with ham, mushrooms and cheese, hashbrowns and sausages.

Bible verse: Mathew 1:23 "The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel" which means, "God with us."

I hope you have a few moments today to think about the birth of our Savior. God coming in human flesh to ultimately save us from our sins. A little babe, wrapped in swaddling cloths, asleep in the manger - he is God's annointed. This baby will be the one to rescue us from sin, who will over come death and defeat the devil. Praise be to God for this gift.

Have a blessed Merry Christmas - celebrate the Christ Child!!
