Merry Christmas!

I hope you all have/had a wonderful Christmas celebration this morning! :) I know our family had a great time together. I wrote a poem a couple days ago, and I thought I'd share it with you all! It gives you a small picture of what Christmas morning in the Eddy house is like as well as sharing the deeper meaning of this holiday.
Enjoy! :)

I call this:

Christmas Morning:

Christmas morning dawns bright and clear,

The yells of siblings in my ear.

A pillow can’t block out the noise,

Of screaming girls and yelling boys.

“Come on, wake up, and come downstairs!”

Aren’t they in bed with teddy bears?

Finally I’m dragged from bed,

First my feet and then my head.

Propped on a couch with blinking eyes

Each present filled with a surprise.

Wrapping paper and bows galore,

Excitement mounts up more and more.

Thanking my parents, giving hugs,

Footballs, jewelry, toys, and mugs.

Suddenly the hubbub ceases,

And finally quiet increases.

All us kids look up at Dad,

Who smiling, opens his iPad.

“Luke chapter two,” the story starts,

How Jesus came to save our hearts.

We listen, and the story we’re told,

The story that will not grow old.

Jesus, who came to save us all,

A better gift than mug or ball.

Only ask and if you believe,

Then this great gift you will receive.

Jesus will make your heart his home,

Never will you be all alone.

Victory in  Him, the battle won,

God loved us, so He sent His Son,

Who died on a cross with our sin,

Rising from the dead, so we will win.

This Christmas as you celebrate,

Don’t forget to love, not hate.

Like Jesus when he came to earth

From throne above to humble birth.

God bless you all through this next year,

Remember that God’s with us here.

Merry Christmas!

Almost Christmas!

Only five days to go! I'm so, so, SO excited!!!!! (Can you tell? :P) And not because I get to spend time with my family that morning opening up presents, but because it is the celebration for Christ's birth! Unfortunately, we probably will be having a green Christmas...as usual...up here in Western Washington, but hey, God might give us a miracle! :P
Just for fun, I thought I'd post a Christmas song played by one of my favorite YouTube artists, The PianoGuys. Actually, just Thursday night we, (Mom, Dad, Andrew, Sarah, Margaret and I) got to go to a live concert by them in Seattle! It was AWESOME!!!
Enjoy a little "Merry Christmas" from the PianoGuys! :) God Bless!
