๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ When Death Comes At Christmas…

The first empty grave is only the first grave to empty, for on the last day all graves will be emptyโ€”those of all we mourn at Christmas who have died in Christ.
December 28 is observed by many churches as the โ€œFeast of the Holy Innocents,โ€ the young boys around Bethlehem slaughtered on the orders of King Herod, who hoped that he could destroy newly born king he had heard of from Eastern magi.

What Your Husband Really Wants for Christmas
Forget the ties and BBQ apron, your man would much rather see these gifts wrapped up on Christmas Day.
I love Christmas shopping. Iโ€™ll spend weeks before the big day searching for the right gift that conveys just what that particular person means to me or our family. Nothing elaborate or overly expensive but something that is practical and comes from the heart.

I never wanted a stepmom. And I certainly never wanted my kids to have a stepgrandmother.
But when my first daughter was 6 weeks old, my mom left my dad. It had been a long time coming. And from every professionalโ€™s advice, he certainly deserved it. No one faulted her for it.

How do we find the holy balance of treating our bodies like temples, but not to the extent that we become health-obsessed this holiday season?
Ah, the holidaysโ€”when weโ€™re bombarded with all things buttery and comforting. It begins the week of Halloween, with the deluge of sugary bite-sized treats my daughters bring home and it ends around January 2nd . . . or 5th . . . or 8th.
