Gifts of Christmas

Gifts of Christmas
December 21: Christmas with Church Family

Once a year families at church will draw each other's names from a basket and keep it a secret until the Sunday before Christmas. We always laugh...and cry too sometimes, and have a wonderful time as each gift is given along with thoughtful words to each family.

As the lights went out in the house, I saw the thoughtfully made ribbon tree made on a twig, the leftover pumpkin pie (the only proof leftover from the many desserts that afternoon) and the beautiful glass pitcher filled with chex mix, part of our gift...I love these gifts of Christmas...these days when we all come together, anticipating the day we celebrate Jesus' coming to earth.
