Family Time ~ Merry Christmas!

Over the next two weeks the plan is to
H.I.B.E.R.N.A.T.E.


And to
C.E.L.E.B.R.A.T.E.


We have the most Wonderful
R.E.A.S.O.N.


HE came to live ~
in our place.

HE came to die ~
that we might be set free.

"For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish,
but have everlasting life."

~ John 3:16 ~


May the LORD be the focus
of all your celebrating.
And may HE set you free indeed!

"For unto us a child is born,
unto us a son is given:
and the government shall be upon his shoulder:
and his name shall be called
Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God,
The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace."

~ Isaiah 9:6 ~


Blessings to each of you ~
Merry CHRISTmas from our home to yours.
Many Blessings for 2011!

In His Love,
Camille


P.S.
I *love* to hear from you ~
If you should choose to leave a comment,
please do not be alarmed at the length of time it
takes for me to post it.
My plan, Lord-willing,
is to be *offline* for the next two weeks,
and to post again early in the New Year.
I will look forward to catching up with all of you then!

Camille~
Hope you and your dear family have a Blessed Christmas ~ it is *the most wonderful time of the year*!
Snuggle down and be cozy and you *hibernate* ~ being with loved ones, sharing in the joy of family.
Rejoice as you *celebrate* the birth of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. How awesome that God would love us so much that He would choose to come to this earth and put on human flesh, that He would give up His Crown for a time and be born a babe to common folk in a poor cow stall!
Christmas is the eyepiece of a telescope looking forward to Easter!
Yes, He is the Reason for the Season! I am so glad He came!

May you have the Merriest and Most Blessed CHRISTmas!

See you next year!

Heather said...

Enjoy CHRISTmas with your family! Take advantage of that hibernation... your computer will always be waiting, whenever you're ready to get back at it :)
Have a wonderful New Year's celebration as well.

Love, Heather

Grandma Becky said...

Merry Christmas and have some fun with your family. I enjoyed the Christmas music on your play list, esp. Josh Groban singing "O Holy Night". I've listened to it 3x!!!So beautiful and the real reason for the CHRISTmas season!
Now baking to finishing my hubby's birthday pie--marionberry. Then lasagne for the main course! Hugs! Happy 2011!!

I want to wish you a blessed Christmas time with your family. And thanks to you for providing a beautiful play list. I put it on the computer Friday night while I hosted a group of 9 girls in my Bright Lights group. We had a Christmas party, and I chose your music to play while we did a craft project. It was a perfect setting.

Dear Camille,
I'm leaving you a comment and even though you may not read it until the new year I'm dropping by to wish you and your family a beautiful Christmas and another year of many blessings in 2011. This is the last friend's blog I'm stopping by today as I have so much to do. I will also have to have some time away from the computer this Christmas week. So much to tell but it can wait until next year! I guess looking at the weather map on the international news last evening that you may be having a white Christmas. We have had so much rain and I'm praying for sunshine for Christmas day!
I have so enjoyed reading your blog this year, especially sharing in your 'blessings' - always full of the joys of family life and encouragement from God's Word! Thank you!

Camille,
I hope you have a wonderful Christmas, dear friend! Thanks for letting me know you're taking a break. I admire you!

I am so thankful we have such a wonderful and perfect Savior who came to earth to drink the bitter cup reserved for me. How sweet is His love and what a delight to rejoice in Him with other believers!

Love to you and your family!
