For Unto Us a Child is Born

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

I call Him Jesus, and seek to honor Him in my heart as if everyday was His birthday!

Each year, as I shop, it bothers me more and more how few things reflect the source of my Christmas celebration. I made my own cards this year. I didn't know how much longer the kids would be willing players in my Christmas card scheme. To range in age from seven weeks to 6 years, they were very cooperative.

His equally beautiful blue-eyed sister.
Who can resist chubby cherub hands from my precious red head.
Bean loves me, but he loves this lamb more. He wanted a picture of lambie in the manger.

Wishing you a blessed Christmas!

Kaye- As I noted yesterday, Thursday evening was day four of Kaye being terribly sick after dialysis. We changed her Christmas dinner to noon, yesterday. We had no sooner got there with all the food and all the gifts and her four grandkids, when the kidney doc came in and said since they couldn't figure out the problem, they would just start eliminating possibilities. So, though they could grow nothing out of port (bacteria), they were still going to replace it and it had to be done right now! We asked could we have an hour since we were all there to do her Christmas. "No, it has to be done now." Well, I guess Ol' Mother Hubbard and I get an "A" for effort. The procedure went fine and I pray that this will relieve her post dialysis agony.

I had big plans to visit someone very special to me as a surprise for Christmas Day, but have fretted about the weather putting a stop to my plans all week. Well, it doesn't look to bad, so I'm off. Let's hope and pray this goes better than my attempts at having Christmas with Kaye.
Thanks for your continued prayers.

Christ's Peace and Love to all this Christmas!
