Christmas away from home?

Well, I just may be spending my first Christmas away from home. Having been staying with my grandparents these last few weeks have been a treasure, however I had no idea how difficult it would be to try to fly back home around the holiday's. Here in the east, we've been having lots of winter weather (probably close to a foot of snow) and we're supposed to get another 8-10 inches of it today and tomorrow. Unless I can get a flight out of here, I will be spending Christmas away from home.

But I am reminded that where ever I'm at, I can celebrate it. Christmas is not about presents, looking at lights on Christmas Eve, family gatherings and parties. Not that those things are necessarily wrong, but Christmas is about Jesus. It's about celebrating and worshiping HIM, and we can do that whether we find ourselves with our family or alone.

May you all have a wonderful and Christ-filled Christmas!

Goodness, what a frigid looking landscape! But it is beautiful! No doubt about it. Even more wonderful for Christmas.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year wherever you may be!
