Nana has always had plenty of help in the kitchen when baking Christmas goodies. The two grand daughters pictured here still like baking. One of the greatest blessings my wife and I have enjoyed is having the grand kids living close to us. All of us live in the same town and about three miles apart. We have enjoyed soccer, baseball, dance, Easter, birthdays, school plays, vacation Bible school, and Christmas every year. Now they are beginning the next phase of life. The oldest (not pictured here) is married, the two girls in this image are in college and the grandson is a junior in high school. Family time is the most precious time of all. Have a blessed Christmas holiday.
When the grand kids were young the oldest would interview her younger siblings and make a detailed Christmas list of things they wanted for presents. The list was even broken down into categories like, clothes, electronics and toys. Have you ever spent time shopping for the perfect gift for someone that you love?
When you found that gift, you were almost as thrilled as the recipient when the gift was opened. God has purchased the most precious gift ever given. It is a gift that everyone needs and it comes at a very high price. The gift cost God his only Son, but when we accept that gift of salvation, there is rejoicing in heaven and no one is happier than our Creator.
