And the days march on

I am just getting into the Christmas spirit and have almost finished my Christmas shopping! I am so excited to start all the great traditions of the season.

To start off the reading (which happens to be about my favourite thing to do with the kids during this season), I read this book. By the end I was choking back the tears. I wasn't too sure about it at first as it takes place in the future, but it ended up being just awesome. It takes place in a time in the future when Christmas and anything to do with Christ is outlawed. Then the main character comes across a drum and it is the drum of the little drummer boy. He finds the story of Jesus and wants to play the drum for Him. The passion in the boy is portrayed so well.
As the days go by I will write about the things we are doing to celebrate the birthday of the King. The one who deserves all glory! Hope the start of the holiday season has everyone in awe of the wonderful gift that the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords has given!
