Merry Christmas from Our Homestead to Yours

Merry Christmas from The Prairie Homestead!

I wish I could send each and every one of you a real Christmas card, but since that would be rather difficult, I’ll stick to the virtual version instead.

We are sticking close to the homestead this Christmas and are looking forward to having a quiet Christmas day with just the 4 of us. (Actually, there are over 30 of us if you count all the animals. But you know what I mean…)

I hope your holidays are filled with family, friends, fellowship, and good food. Perhaps you’ll be enjoying a large gathering, or maybe just a quiet, personal celebration, but regardless, don’t let the real reason for the season be lost among all of the holiday trimmings.

The fulfillment of a prophecy…

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” -Isaiah 9:6

God with us…

“And the angel said to them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.” -Luke 2: 10-11

True Love was born in a stable…

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” -John 3:16

Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!
