Christmas has come and gone. It still surprises me how much time & preparation goes into this day - and then before you can even say HO, HO, HO - it's over.
We really enjoyed our time with both families - it was a whirl-wind kind of holiday. While we had a great holiday of feasting and celebrating and giving/opening presents - I feel as if this Christmas in particular wasn't Jesus-focused at all. That is due to our self-centeredness. Over the past few months I've became more knowledgeable about why we celebrate Christmas when we do, yet I failed to act accordingly.
