My Christmas Wish

There are so many things about Christmas that I love.

Green and Red. The symbols for life and sacrifice.

Simple nativity scenes. Reminding me of what we're celebrating at Christmas.

Christmas Lights. They brighten up the dark winter nights.

Holiday shopping. Yes, I do love it! There is great joy in thinking about particular gifts that will bless the people I love.

Christmas Music. Everything from Andrea Bocelli to Michael Bublé, Haven of Rest to Angel Tree Children's all speaks to my heart of Christmas.

Final day of the Advent Calendar. There's still a thrill in seeing the angel go on top on the 24th.

Candles. The single flame that reminds me of Jesus, the one and only, who came to overcome darkness.

Thank you for the beautiful photos Claire!
But what I love most about Christmas is WHO we're celebrating!


The one foretold of by the prophet Isaiah:

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light...

For unto us a child is born,

unto to us a child is given...

And he will be called

Wonderful Counselor

Almighty God

Everlasting Father

Prince of Peace

He will reign...with justice and righteousness...


Who is this Jesus? I invite you to find out if you don't know. He's changed my life. And I want nothing more than to see your life changed by Him too.

See HERE for a wonderful website founded by friends of ours, that will lead you, step by step, to know Jesus.

It is my Christmas wish that you too would begin a relationship with Jesus, receiving all that He came to give...His sacrifice for your sins, relationship with Him today, and everlasting life.

  1. Thank you for posting the photo with our Christmas glasses. I was driving the other day and planning our Christmas party in my mind and thought, "I need to get out the Christmas glasses for the party" before I remembered that we didn't bring them back to the States with us. I got all teary about it. Funny how grief hits you in little waves. I told Ken about it that night. I loved those glasses - esp with our German dishes with the winter scene on it. So glad to see them in your photo! That made me very happy!

    Funny story: we have a German exchange student at our school and she was over for a game day over holiday. I had out our Wachtersbach red Christmas dishes and she went crazy. She lives in Frankfurt and knows of the factory. It was so fun to have her eat on them and feel like "home". When she left our house that night she thanked me over and over and said how "good" it felt. I was so thankful that dishes helped her during a holiday away from her family.
