December 4th

"From Home to home, and heart to heart, from one place to
another. The warmth and joy of Christmas, brings us closer
to each other. ..."

We celebrate family.

The ones we see daily and the ones we shout to across the mountains and fields.

The family of Christ. The family of blood. The family of friends.

The ones who drive us crazy and make us tongue-tied.

The ones we can share dreams, hopes and fears with.

We cry with the family who cries. Who mourn the loss of life, the loss of hope, the loss of stability.

We celebrate with family who sings with cheer, dreams realized, joy and the spring of New Life.

We celebrate family. One year olds who spill bowls of cereal and pitter patter the floors with bins of flour. Mothers and Fathers in spirit and skin and bones, who speak wisdom, love and experience. Our sisters, brothers, fathers, mothers, children.

Family is celebrated this Christmas. Are you thankful for the people who surround you and walk life with you, near and far?
