Christmas Day at Our House

My family plans to spend Christmas at our house, so our young adult sons will come over, and we four will visit, exchange gifts and enjoy a feast together.

My husband will cook a ham, and I will make lots of side dishes including mozzarela cheese balls with cherry tomatoes and fresh basil, in olive oil. My son described this dish last year, so I tried it and it is delicious.

What kind of pie or tart shall we have?
We haven't decided yet.

Our church had a wonderful Christmas service last Sunday, with children singing, recognition of our members who are a married couple and who are retiring from being Wycliffe Bible missionaries, and our choir with additional singers from another church.

This sets the spiritual stage for our welcoming the birth of Jesus our King, and for family celebrations in our home.

John 3:16 is wonderful: “This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life.” The Message
