Christmas is such a wonderful time of year but I find the stress of finding the perfect gift often clouds the joy this season brings for people. We all want to be a great gift giver and be the one that gives the best present of all. This year I am reflecting on a wonderful gift I received this year and why it is so special.
This Wednesday night my family had a really special opportunity to join a church for their “Stroll through Bethlehem” outreach event by posing as Mary and Joseph with our seven week old baby girl wrapped up as baby Jesus. The whole experience came to life for me in a surprising way that has helped me realise how much we, as mums, can relate to Mary and be thankful for what God has done for us.
Christmas is such a wonderful time of year. I love all the fun. The special things we do as a family, the food we eat, the things we make, the good cheer…. There are countless wonderful Christmas traditions and it’s hard to choose the best.
But I have one thing I do every year, without fail AFTER Christmas, which captures it all (and it is getting bigger and better every year!)
My little ‘almost’ two year old is getting into EVERYTHING at the moment and as Christmas is fast approaching, I knew I needed something different to decorate my Christmas tree. The tinsel and glass baubles I have used in previous years just weren’t going to do!
