A Christmas Message from Our Little Acre


Christmas is upon us, having rushed in as it does every year. Anxiety runs high - will we get it all done, will we find the right thing, will we be late to the party, will we stay healthy? Invariably, Christmas gets here, right on schedule, whether we're ready or not.

But imagine Mary, as she traveled to Bethlehem with Joseph. I'm sure she was hoping the impending birth of Jesus would hold off until they could get back home. But time waits for no man, not even when it's the Son of God.


So Christmas comes, in spite of our readiness or lack of it, and we rejoice in the reason we celebrate Christmas in the first place. Not for the presents (although we like them), not for the culinary delights that are prepared (we like those, too), but for the birth of Jesus, who we as Christians believe is God come to Earth in the form of a man.

We at Our Little Acre wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and for those that don't celebrate in the way we do, we hope your holidays are good ones as well.


Romie, Kylee, Simon, Baby, Jilly, Jack, Luna, Boo, Max, Sunny, and Lola.

Amen to that. It's crazy how some things get forgotten when we worry about all of the little detail, the big picture seems to get forgotten.

I just got finished reading the sequence of events during your power outage. What a deal! I was wondering why it was warmer in the basement. Usually, ours is cooler than the rest of the house.

That was a wonderfully put Christmas greeting. A belated Merry Christmas to you, too, and Have a Blessed New Year.
