Speaking of children and Christmas:
I was given two very special gifts this year that are hard to come by and can't be bought in the real sense of the word: Time. My husband gave me the gift of time by taking his time to clean my house top to bottom while I worked/played on my hobbies. Our children gave us a weekend away, just the two of us. Time together that we rarely get because our youngest with us means we're always "three" rather than "two". It made me remember that Jesus gave His time for us. He gave up the glories of Heaven to be bound in space and time because I needed a Savior. How blessed I am this Christmas because of the most precious gift of all: a baby born in a manger that grew to be a man that died on the cross and rose again. He gave it all.
