24: Sing Happy Birthday to Jesus AND 25: Stop and Look Around

So I'm posting this on Christmas Day. Actually the night of Christmas Day. And this would be how we started our day, with #24 on our Christmas Countdown:

It was a wonderful day. Time together, talking about Gifts and gifts, hanging out, watching movies, eating cinnamon toast (a tribute to Steeley), calling family, playing with Frank (my new laptop - oooo, aaah!), and then chaos at the in-laws'. I am thrilled with the way our focus was NOT on gifts, and happy with how the Want/Need/Wear/Read gifts worked out.

I am happy and spent and ready to crash in bed. I hope you all had a joyful, Christ-centered, peaceful day. Happy birthday to you, Jesus. My heart is full of gratitude, mostly because You will still be here tomorrow even when all of the hubbub is finished.

And the answer to #25 on our Countdown is yes: even if I had nothing, I would still be happy because my joy comes from You.
