Today is Christmas Eve. I can't believe it's already here! This is the first year that Matt and I will wake up in our home together on Christmas Day. It's also the last year that we will spend Christmas childless. 2008 holds many changes for us - and we are anticipating them greatly. But, this morning as I reflect on the holiday festivities we will take part in, I'm most grateful for the birth of my Savior. I'm celebrating more than a virgin, miracle birth. I'm celebrating my own personal salvation - that Christ came to earth, lived a perfect life, and died a death that saved me from eternal separation from God. Because of Christmas, I'm able to have a personal, vibrant relationship with the God of the universe. Thank you Lord!
