Speechless Sunday - Christmas Reflections!!

Christmas reflections

Our daughter is the photographer you see in the ornament.This was at my sister's house in Colorado two years ago. At the time we had thought our son was going to be deployed to Iraq so decided to go to Colorado. As it turned out he was not deployed until February so he ended up in Colorado that Christmas with us. My parents opted not to come in that year as they didn't want to battle the cold.

This year our son is now out of the Army and everyone is coming here for Christmas. Our daughter flew in from New York City yesterday morning.  She had a 5:45 AM flight and we are so glad that we decided on that time as LaGuardia closed 2 hours later for the snow storm.  My parents fly in on Tuesday and my sister is coming in Christmas Day. This will be the first time we have all been together for a Christmas since our son joined the army back in 2004. We are looking forward to making new Christmas reflections.

I would be remiss if I didn't talk about the most important Christmas reflection of all. That is our savior Jesus Christ, God but also Man, who came back over 2000 years ago to seek and save the lost.  He is the reason for the season.
