Cookies are made, pies and pastries baked, a second batch of fudge finished (after a disastrous first try), presents wrapped and now we're ready. A bit different from the first Christmas so long ago when the responsibilities of daily life brought an expectant couple to Bethlehem where, because there were no vacancies in the local inn, they bedded down for the night in a stable. Not a likely place for a king to be born but the Creator showed mankind that sacrifice is an inseparable part of love. Oh, how He loves us! So we're ready for the holiday festivities and all our company tomorrow. And we're ready to accept the amazing gift given so long ago. Merry Christmas!
