Joy!

output_Ye9Roj

I just love Christmas time, especially now that I have kids. It’s so nice to see them enjoying the season – family, food and festivities …. and of course both the giving and receiving of presents.

Our kids were extremely lucky to receive this awesome trampoline – a gift from all their grand parents who all pitched in. So generous! We gave it to the kids early because we are away from home for Christmas. In fact we are already on our holiday, visiting family in Christchurch.

I can see this trampoline is going to get a lot of use! (From us adults too – it’s strong enough to our weight! Yuss!)

Seeing the joy on these kids’ faces when playing on their new tramp or when opening presents reminds me of the true meaning and joy of Christmas – to which these simple joys don’t even hold a candle to.

Luke 2:10-11 …But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord.

Merry Christmas from my family to yours!
