Merry Christmas from Joe and Tania

Merry Christmas to you and your family from the Stephens household. I hope that your day is filled with love and laughter and that you go to bed with a full belly. Christmas is different for Joe and me this year from the past celebrations we have had. We no longer live beside my son and his family, so I probably won’t hear any squeals of joy when Christmas presents are opened.  However, that doesn’t mean that it can’t still be a time of celebration.

Merry Christmas from Joe and Tania 3

Most of us know that Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. However, Christmas has turned into a time of giving presents to our friends and loved ones, similar to how the shepherds gave gifts to Jesus at birth. The day has become a day of gathering with family to open gifts and eat.

The year 2020 taught us many valuable lessons. Some of them were hygiene lessons about washing our hands properly, and some of them were about learning to slow down and smell the roses. Even though 2021 has also had its challenges, there have been good also. We have been able to travel more, hug our loved ones, and enjoy family get-togethers this year.

I want to wish you a heartfelt Merry Christmas from Joe and me. Jesus is the reason for the season, so I’m giving you the same gift I gave you last year.

Last year, I watched this Christmas special on Christmas Eve morning and again on Christmas. It is a new tradition for me, and it brings tears to my eyes every time I watch it.  I hope it moves you in the same way.

Verse of the Day

Matthew 2:10 – 11

10 When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. 11 On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

Have A Merry Christmas!
