Merry Christmas! This week we celebrate Christmas on Friday and on Sunday the Holy Family!! So much to be thankful for as we remember kept promises! God is with us!
For Family all ages and people not necessarily related by blood!
For younger children especially- One of my family’s favorite on Christmas Eve was to read “ Timmy’s gift” ...here it is in a video and there are lessons for all ages. We also read the scriptures on the the Nativity. My parents had a really great Bible that had pictures of the actual places things happened. Look for Bethlehem on a map as well. Trace their steps from Nazareth. In the second video you can see the ACTUAL places where shepherds kept watch and where Jesus was born!!
Now let’s journey to the real place the Nativity story unfolds....
On Sunday we celebrate the Holy Family. The Holy Family give us something to strive for. I think even the Holy family had their moments. God asks that when we fall, we get back up and do the best we can. Families come in all shapes and sizes. Some families are formed by friendship. We are all family as children of God.
In closing..... One of my favorite songs that fits every season is from Matt Maher and is my prayer for each person .
