Jesus is the Reason for the Season

Season's Greetings! May this post find all of you well. I hope you have enjoyed a wonderful Christmas with your families.

Our children woke up Christmas morning to quite a shock. They all enjoyed their gifts, and the little kids are still working on their stocking goodies.

Getting to church today proved to be a little difficult. In addition to the snow showers we are having, the heavy windchill makes things even colder. But the Bontragers had their garage heated up and thankfully the ministers kept us all awake. I think they must have been cold too, as they didn't seem to go as long as they sometimes do. Of course most of the ministers preached of the birth of our Savior and the true meaning of Christmas.

Afterwards at the meal, it was good to finish passing around some of the Christmas cards I still had, and greet friends and neighbors. And we had a real treat when the host family announced the young singles would be doing a short singing for us. Normally the young singles do their singings on Sunday nights. But since it is a holiday weekend, the family talked the singles into singing during the meal instead.

They sang a few of the hymns from the Schwartz's Song Book and some Christmas Carols as well. It was really nice to hear celebrations in song, as Jesus is the reason for the season.

God Bless,
