Our family is on the downhill stretch of preparing for my daughter Ruth’s wedding. There are still last minute tasks, but we’re seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

I love Christmas! It’s a season of cheer and goodwill, wrapped in red and green. There’s an extra skip in our step and a song in our heart as the calendar unfolds and Christmas approaches. Christmas is a holy hug from heaven.

As BO Baker wrote, “It’s a carol of hope in a world of broken dreams . . . It’s the coming into time of the Saviour, Jesus Christ; a God-kind of joy lying in a manger; the hope of heaven in a mother’s arms . . .”

In no particular order, here are ten things I love about Christmas. Read More»
