There are a lot of signs that Christmas 2012 is just around the corner.
Yesterday, I heard some bells ringing outside of our home. Upon opening the front door, I discovered a horse drawn wagon coasting down our street. Got to love celebrating the Christmas season in a three-hundred and fifty year old city!
This week, MJ got to shop in her favourite store, while I waited and waited and waited some more! Today, I will go out and buy a few last minute stocking stuffers. Got to love the Christmas Eve shopping buzz!
Tonight, we will attend a Christmas Eve service in our home church. Tomorrow we will spend Christmas day with our kids and some dear friends. Got to love getting together with those you love at Christmas time.
Last Monday, MJ and I had the privilege of having a turkey sandwich picnic with her parents and my brother and his wife. What a pre Christmas delight that was. Got to love the memories made at this time of the year!
Speaking of turkeys, before this Christmas season is over, MJ and I will have participated in three different turkey meals, including Zambia. You heard right. MJ got it in her head a few weeks ago that we will bring a frozen turkey from Canada to Zambia and share it with some of our missionary friends on New Year’s Day. My next blog will be from Zambia and I will let you know if the turkey survives a plane ride and ends up in the oven and on our table in Kitwe, Zambia! Got to love my creative wife!
So, on this Christmas Eve 2012, MJ and I wish you and yours a wonderful, Jesus centered, God blessed Christmas and New Year.
