Well, It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! The snow’s on the ground, the lights and Christmas trees are up and presents are starting to appear under the tree! It’s such a wonderful, mysterious time of generosity and love based on the generosity and love of the One Who loved us first, Jesus. This Christmas we just want to go back and remember Baby Jesus but through a bigger lens. We are looking at how God weaved a plan in the most extraordinary way to bring us our Savior!
