Christmas with the in-laws

I finally made it to Danville, Illinois, to join my wife and daughters as we celebrate Christmas with my in-laws. We're having Monical's pizza for dinner (mmm... so good to drizzle Monicals' own French dressing on a slice of pepperoni thin-crust), and then we'll go to an uncle's home to consume even more food. We have usually gone to the Christmas Eve service at April's grandparents' church, but we won't make it this year due to her grandmother's poor health. We'll spend the night in Danville, then travel home sometime tomorrow afternoon. Santa's already delivered his gifts to our home, so my eldest daughter should be surprised when we return.

May you have a safe and joyous Christmas! Remember that the child born and laid in a manger did not remain a child, but grew in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man. He died on the cross and was resurrected so that we might be with Him in eternity. Praise God for His unspeakable gift!
