I am finishing up the last of my handmade Christmas gifts and thinking about tomorrow; the excitement that comes with a house full of kids and piles presents, the family traditions of big breakfasts, Christmas puzzles and lounging around in our P.J.'s all morning... But mostly I am thinking about the true meaning of Christmas, what we are really celebrating, the birth of our Savior. I hope that amidst the excitement, we don't lose sight of the most wonderful gift we have ever received.

For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David's throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the LORD Almighty
will accomplish this.
Isaiah 9:6&7
