merry CHRISTmas. It is So Much Bigger Than That.

We counted down the days until Christmas and I realize that it so so much bigger than that. Since the fall of man, believers hoped and counted down to the birth of the Messiah.

I have held a newborn to my cheek. It is not something easily forgotten. A parent cherishes the first moment of laying their eyes on their precious child and the touch of their skin is believing in miracles. And I know that Mary and Joseph were favored and blessed among humans because Mary carried God in her womb and she looked upon his face and she cared for his infant body.

Today is Christmas, but it is so much more than that. I LOVE the magic of first stepping into the living room, carols playing, a fire burning, stockings overflowing. Breakfast will be set out and will be much too much for the three of us to eat: quiche, donuts, fruit, sausage balls, cinnamon rolls, orange juice, and coffee. Presents will finally be opened. I can not wait to play with Madison’s new gifts with her! We will feast for lunch and then open more presents. Then we will gather with family and smile and hug, feast some more, and gather on the best day of the year. But this celebration is all a remembrance. This birthday is of my God. Immanuel. God is with us.

I was lost, and sick, blind, poor, and had no hope. But now I am found, and perfect, and rich, and a child of God. Christmas is everything!

Merry CHRISTmas!

  1. Thank you Caroline, for stopping by my way for it gave me the door to see your blog, your journey, your joyful spirit in hard places. I’m blessed to be reading your story and I’m so glad for the glorious Christmas Day with your family. As a tour guide at a large cancer hospital I hear many tough stories smd some close to yours, but rarely padded with such hope and joy. You are encouraging many along the way and rightly so for with Him, hope is the bumper pad. May we always keep Him in focus so that everything hard stays in perspective. May His peace be yours His joy our strength.


  2. Hi Caroline. Just read this now and I am thoroughly enjoying all the blogs you wrote this month. I am happy for you that you had such a beautiful Christmas. God bless you. Debbie.
