Please pause here to note my beautiful picture...okay, we can move on.
~ Description ~
One of the most beloved ministers of this century reminds us that Christmas means the birth of Jesus Christ--the gift of God with us. Marshall also celebrates the family customs that make the holiday so special. Wonderfully illustrated, this Christmas keepsake is perfect for traditions and family reading.
~ My Review ~
This is great little short book, a sermon actually (and one that Dad has read from in his Christmas sermons several times). My family has an old copy (in the above picture) that we bring out every Christmas season and place on the coffee table next to the family Bible and a few other Christmas books.
"So we will not 'spend' Christmas nor 'observe' Christmas. We will 'keep' Christmas – keep as it is... in all the loveliness of its ancient traditions. May we keep it in our hearts, that we may be kept in its hope."
Beautiful. What Christmas should truly mean to every Christian <3 I would recommend this to anyone.
Have you read this book?
Does your family have any special books you bring out at Christmas?
Do you take pictures with plaid, old books, and dried flowers? :)
