Merry Christmas!

Today has been a flurry of activity:  I have started preparing for the Christmas Eve feast and finished shopping for and wrapping the last few gifts.  We actually went to Christmas Eve service last night (!) since my son is working retail and won't get off until 9 p,m. tonight.  I thought we would open a few gifts, eat a leisurely meal, and maybe watch It's a Wonderful Life together (if we can stay awake!).  Believe it or not, I don't think any of the four of us have ever seen that movie all the way through!

I hope your Christmas is filled with wonder and awe in the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ:
"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace." (Isaiah 9:6)

Vicki, I thought I was the only person on the planet who had not seen "...Wonderful Life" all the way through.

BTW, how do you like your wood floors by now? We are picking some out right now. Any advice?

Thank you for the scripture verse! What a gift!! Merry Christmas to you and your lovely family!
Oh, we have also not seen Its A Wonderful Life all the way through! I think I should pull it out and try again.
