We Call It Christmas for a Reason

I want to wish all my blogging friends a very Merry Christmas. You have all become very special to me in this past year. I know that many of us are of different faiths, but this time of year is very precious to me and my family. I BELIEVE! Yes, I love everything about Christmas...the lights, the songs, the decorations, Rudolph and Santa....but the reason I BELIEVE is because we are celebrating the birth of my personal Saviour - JESUS.
I am determined this year that I say Merry Christmas to everyone I come in contact with...not only to be nice, but to stand firm that this is not JUST a holiday (which came from HOLY day!) but the time that I celebrate the birth of Jesus. It is my right and my honor to say it!
So...all that being said, I wish for all of you a wonderful time with your family, good food, wonderful time of sharing and all your dreams of that day to come true.

I will not be posting until after Christmas. I want to take time to enjoy and reflect. I may check on your blogs but I do not plan to post until next Saturday December 27!
Until then....Ceekay

Merry Christmas my sweet friend! Old friends are the best - we've always shared our families, our faith, all the good and all the bad, and now we're blogging sisters too!

I'm sure I will be talking to you again - many times - before Christmas, but just the same, merry Christmas to you and to Hubby and the family. May your new year be blessed with nothing but God's very best!
XO

Merry Christmas to YOU, too, CeeKay! Thank you for that inspiring post--we ALL need to be reminded of what this season is all about! I have been so busy with sales and decorating and "doing fun stuff" with my buddies, that I haven't spent much time reading posts! I just caught up with some of your recent ones---that little tea room looked so great and I loved your collection of vintage ornies! You've been a busy girl, too! Enjoy your blogging break and have a Wonderful Holiday! L, Dana
