Todays Verse: “But you, Bethlehem Ephrata, though you are small among the clansof Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.” Micah 5:2
Todays Goal: If you have not already done this, then take some time and make some cookies to give away, not as a Christmas gift, but just as an extra gift to make someone smile. Make some cookies and give them to the mailman, or drop some by the bank you go to, you could bake some cookies and give them to the neighbors children out playing, or the Salvation Army people standing out in the cold ringing their bell. You get the idea. Have your kids help make the cookies then they can help share them with someone they choose too. Warm someones heart as well as their stomach by showing Gods love and sharing what you have made. I am sure you can think of many other reasons to make cookies, so have at it!!!!!

Something special to do: Remember those cookies you made today? Well I hope you saved a few, because one special thing to do with someone or someones you love is to sit by the tree, have some candles lit and a plate of cookies and glasses of milk (or snowman soup!) on the table and take turns telling favorite moments of Christmas past then when the cookies are done and the milk is gone, sing one favorite Christmas Carol and then go to bed early thinking about the wonderful memory you just made with someone you love. You will need to relax a little, Christmas is on your doorstep and about to come in!!!!! Only 5, really only 5 days to go!!!!!!!!! What have you got left to do before Christmas Day?
