Celebrating the Birth of a Savior!

The shopping is done, the parties from here on out are intimate and special, the stress is lightened...
it is time to truly celebrate the birth of a Savior! 
Yesterday morning my church presented their Annual Christmas Cantata along with a play done by our Children's Ministry.  It was so touching.  As I sat there in the service, I felt as if Christmas had truly descended and it was time to celebrate Jesus' birth.  Something in that sacred place, with the music touching the Heavens and voices of young and old lifted up, brought me the peace and beauty of the season.  It was delightful. 
My sweet baby boy was part of the Children's Ministry production.

I hope you are finding time to truly experience what this season is about,
peace, love, joy and the birth of  a King.

Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!
Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem!
Behold, your king is coming to you; righteous and having salvation is he,
humble and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
Zechariah 9:9

Our church did its Joy Gift Service last weekend. The children bring an unwrapped toy to donate and decorate a tree with ornaments made in Sunday School classes that tell the story of Jesus' birth while high schoolers read the verses from the Bible. The tree is then donated to a local nursing home. I look forward to it every year.

I love your pictures--it's events like those that make Christmas so special to me; I went to a candlelit Christmas carol service at my boyfriend's church this past weekend and it was so moving!
