Merry Christmas Eve!

Isaiah 9:6
 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, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

No fancy outfit posts or reviews or anything today.. just want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! For the next day or two, I will be enjoying this:


And being thankful for this:



I also wanted to reflect on the true reason for the season, and that is the birth of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Christmas is always so busy that it's hard to think about anything other than presents and cooking and so on, but I try to stop and remember the importance of this day, and why I do everything I do. I mean literally, everything, in my day to day life. I do it for Christ, because of what he's done for me.

One last thing I will leave you with:

"In a couple of days another Christmas will be over. Decorations will be taken down and the grind of daily life will resume. We must do something to remember that the message and meaning of Christmas does not cease when the celebration is over. Christmas is not really about a celebration, Christmas trees, and piles of gifts. Christmas, the coming of Christ, is about everyday life. God is with us and we need to do anything we can, to remember that fact the rest of the year."

-Bruce Goettsche 



And.. okay, okay, I'll leave you with this as well:


Merry Christmas, friends. I sincerely hope you all have a great holiday. :)
