The thing that I really love about this truth when it comes to Christmas is that there are some very unique smells I associate with the holiday season.

Well, tomorrow He can be the Messiah. Tonight, he is just my precious baby.
God had taken a bad and broken day and turned it into a thing of beauty. That is what Christmas is all about.
