There is no place like home for the holidays....Tis true...but where is home? I grew up in a small town in eastern NC...I've always called it home. However, I've been gone from that town for over half my life. Is it still home? We still drive there for the holidays. It's very exhausting, but we don't want to 'miss anything'. I miss the childhood memories of Christmas....church plays and Christmas caroling... I guess Christmas is for kids. :) When I was in the midst of making childhood Christmas memories, my parents were the ones who were stressed and trying to please. ha ha Dear Lord, help us to remember that Christmas is about YOU, your gift to us, your son, Jesus....our gift of salvation. Merry Christmas!
