Christmas Nostalgia

Christmas is upon us... are you ready? Is your tree up and decorated? Do you have your presents purchased and wrapped? Do you have a plan for eating clean yet still being satisfied over the Holidays?

If you answered no to any of those questions, what are you waiting for? Christmas is only a week away!

As many of you already know, I adore the Christmas season... I look forward to purchasing gifts early, putting up a tree right right after Thanksgiving and wrapping presents at least a week before Christmas just so that I can look at how pretty they are under the twinkling lights of the tree.

Every time that I think of the love and sacrifice that it took for God to send Jesus, his only son, to make this magnificent season possible, it breaks my heart and fills me with joy. I can only hope that the love and sacrifice that I feel for my baby will be a glimmer of the compassion that God has for us.

Today I leave you with my favorite Christmas song, Joy Williams, Here with Us.
