Christmas Home Tour 2012

MERRY CHRISTMAS!  
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...













"It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!"  I love all of the fun--the decorations, the home tours, the parties, the giving.  Most importantly, we celebrate a Savior--that's what makes this time of year so wonderful.  In John 1: 1-5, 14 we are told that...

 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it...The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth

In this passage, John tells us that the Eternal Son of God--the second person of the Trinity equal in person to God the Father left the riches of heaven and came to earth to dwell among us.  

He stepped down into this dark and dead world to bring light and life.  

Jesus is SO much more than a baby in a barn or the son of a carpenter.  He is our Creator King who came to bring us life by giving up his own.


Love and joy come to you,
And to you glad Christmas too,
And God bless you and send you,
happy new year,
And God send you a happy new year.
