Every year my sister and brother in law host a Christmas party for all of our friends.
I look forward to it every year.
We are so lucky to have such a strong community of friends between the two of us. Some live in Portland, some in Seattle, Salem, and even New York but the holidays bring them all home and it's incredible to spend time with them !

As much as I love Christmas movies, cookies, and lights...I love Jesus that much more. I have so much fun buying and wrapping presents and spending time with friends at holiday parties....but I love the gift of Jesus to earth far more than anything. I am writing this not only as an encouragement to you but also as a reminder to myself. The reason why we celebrate this holiday was because God wanted to love this world, and give us the greatest gift of all ; his son. No matter what is under the tree tomorrow I know that I have been given the ultimate gift, the gift that keeps on giving, and the gift that has changed my life forever. Giving thanks to you, God, today and every day.
Merry Christmas and much love to you all !
