Baking Christmas goodies at Nana's house is a tradition in our family. Here, Nana, our daughter, and the three grand daughters pause for a photo during the activities.
This Christmas our country is in need of joy. Recent events have taken a lot of the joy out of the heart of America, and with good reason. There are no simple answers for why things happen the way that they do, and now is not the time to sermonize the situation. Christmas is a time for joy and a time to give joy to those around us. God gave us the ultimate gift of joy when He gave us His son, Jesus Christ. Through Christ, salvation is available, eternal life is available, and unspeakable joy is available. When we need it, in difficult times, strength, comfort, and wisdom are available. This Christmas season, we need all of the above.
