it's Christmas! I am sitting here in Missouri with my husband (well, he is actually sleeping now) and just enjoying this time of relaxing. No orders to ship, nothing to make, no show to sell at. Just being content. I know the chaos and busy-ness will all start back up again the minute we get home (I actually already have a very long list of to-do's, hehe) so it is really nice just sitting here and just being. You know what I mean?
Can I share with you about why we (my family) celebrate Christmas? Well, many years ago, a baby was born in most lowly and humble circumstances. Jesus. He came into the world to give His life for the sins of man. Some of you may think that sounds like a sad or strange story. It's actually really a story of love. Love so far beyond anything we can comprehend or understand. Jesus knew His purpose for coming into the world, and in His great love for us, gave His life that we may be saved. The ultimate sacrifice. Without His birth, there could be no sacrifice. Without His sacrifice, there could be no salvation. But the price has been paid, and we have all been set free. All He asks is that you simply believe! To Him be all honor and glory, for He is the Savior of the world!
Well dearest friends, I want to thank you for all your amazing support this past year. Thank you to everyone and anyone for even taking the time to read this blog. Thank you for every single comment. and really, thanks for allowing me to share my faith with you. I know there are many of you who hold similar beliefs but I am sure many of you who don't necessarily share the same views. Either way though, you allow me be open without criticism or judgements and for that, I am deeply grateful. You are seriously the best readers a blogger could ask for, I mean it. I think that a reader appreciation week is definitely in order. (it's in the works, was just brainstorming ideas with Nick on the plane ride over ;)
I don't really have anything planned to post for next week and plan to just take a little blog break and gear up for a fresh year of blogging in 2012! I hope you all are able to share this time with family or loved ones. Whatever you celebrate, wishing you a lovely holiday and very wonderful new year! xo, danni (& nick too)
