First Christmas

It’s low key. There are three presents under the tree and two are for her. From a friend and from family. Her very first Christmas ornament was given by her Aunt and I think that’s all we’ve got going in the way of material Christmas things. We haven’t decided what our family traditions will be but for sure we want it to be about Jesus. And for sure we don’t want it to just be about the gifts. We want to foster generosity, hospitality and meaningful relationships. Truthfully we don’t exactly know how to do this very well ourselves but we’ll start it together this first Christmas. Thank you for coming to be with us Jesus!
