and not to be a total cheese-ball but as you're running all over town getting your christmas tidings in order remember that the cause for it all is to celebrate the birth Jesus:
"the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. we have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth." john 1:14
who came to be a Savior for many:
"but the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God's grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many!" - romans 5:15
"just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." -matthew 20:28
now that we have our hearts in the right place...enjoy making your home cozy & hospitable, have fun giving to your family, friends & those in need. be thankful for all our many blessings & merry christmas!
