Christmas 2019 and a Menu

Christmas is almost here. How are you planning to spend yours? We, like so many families around the world, will be celebrating the birth of Christ with our family. Our children are grown, with the youngest at 18 years old. They all come to us rather than we going to our parents’ houses. It’s nice. I like it that way.

Years ago before our family expanded from one to five in the blink of an eye, we would spend Christmas Eve with one side of the family and then Christmas Day with the other. When our first three boys were young, we moved to Michigan. It was no longer convenient (we can get some killer snow storms up here) to drive hours to get together. The first year we just stayed home with the kids was one of the best.

As the years went by, this is what we made tradition. Now our oldest son is turning 31 and he is married (no kids yet). They come here on Christmas Eve and go to the other side for Christmas Day. We enjoy the family time with them and we can fully understand the need to split the time between two families.

Merry Christmas. May your time with family and friends be blessed. If you are alone, I’m sorry. Remember that Jesus Christ was born to one day face a cross that would nail your sins and mine to Him. He rose from the dead and lives forever. You don’t ever have to be alone. There’s no greater gift than that.
