A very Happy Christmas to you all from the Sunnyside Family!

Thursday, December 22, 2011

I'm going to take this quick chance to slip on here &  wish you all a very blessed Christmas for 2011.  

~This year I'm taking the time to celebrate our Savior's birth with our precious families & to ponder about why we take part in different traditions ~ how is Jesus' gift represented in each one & if not, why are we doing it?

~  I'm taking the time to reflect on why He came as that most precious babe & how very closely Christmas is linked to Easter (these must never be thought of as separate events).  

~Most of all I'm taking some time to be thankful for the ultimate blessing that Christmas brought ~ the chance for my salvation.  What is life if we live it without the assurance of eternal life?

I'm going to take the next couple of weeks as a 'blogation' & return happy & rested mid January 2012 ( can you believe how quickly this year has flown ~ almost 2012 already)!  

And from all the family & menagerie here at Sunnyside Farm we want to wish you a very safe & Happy Christmas & a blessed year in 2012!

I can't believe how quickly this year has passed either.... just can't believe we're almost in 2012.
I hope you too have a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Look forward to 'seeing' you in the New Year, all being well.
