I love the scents of winter! For me, it's all about the feeling you get when you smell pumpkin spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, gingerbread and spruce.
I'm totally the 'decorate early, start listening to Christmas songs super early' guy. I've just always been that way.
There's probably a lot of folks out there who choose to live without children in their lives. For most of the calendar year, I get that. Kids complicate our lives, that's for sure. But whether I'm out and about, or with our family, looking at those amazing expressions, I just don't understand how anyone would want to pass up on the pure joy. Who's face do you see when you think about your favorite sight of the holidays?
Nothing I've ever done has given me more joys and rewards than being a father to my children.
So the pie isn't perfect? Cut it into wedges. Stay in control, and never panic.
Hold puppies, kittens, and babies anytime you get the chance.

My dearest prayer for each of you is that you have felt the touch of the Babe in a manger. I pray that your eyes have widened in trust, expectation and amazement at the gift He came to offer to each of us, and reached out to hold onto the hand He's stretching out to you.
