Merry Christmas all. Obviously this is a very special one for us Chizzelwicks. ALL of our immediate family on both sides is either here or flying in this afternoon. This is special to us because we live so far from them. I guess if you want see everyone for the holidays all you have to do is have a Baby!!
Mandy and I were talking over our Anniversary dinner last night (see below) about how having Andrew just prior to Christmas has been so special. Imagine what Mary and Joseph must have felt holding the savior of the world in their arms. Christmas reminds us that Jesus was a baby. He had tiny hands and feet just like Andrew. What I find so beautiful about this is that God can relate to us. Christ laid aside his crown and entered into the sufferings of mankind. If that weren't enough, he laid down his life in a most spectacular way for our soul. Check this out for more on the Christian heritage.
The gospel is good news indeed, Merry Christmas!
