What's Special for YOU at Christmas Time?

Mark Koopmans came up with the idea for 50 States of Pray, and even though I'm not in one of the 50 States, here's a Christmas message especially for YOU all the way from South Africa :-)


For me, the best thing about Christmas is family time. We all live in different parts of the country now, so it's great to get everyone together, have fun, exchange presents, and eat fantastic food!

I hope you all have a wonderfully blessed Christmas with your loved ones, and a fun new year! I'll be back in mid-January, after my husband and I have completed our move across the country to Cape Town. Woohoo!

Perfect words to remind us what Christmas is really about. Like you, we'll be spending it with family.

That's a beautiful message, Rachel. I agree, family time is my favorite too! I always look forward to getting together with everyone, as we're spread out also. I hope you had a very merry Christmas =)

On a side note, I wanted to check with you and be sure my email for The Labyrinth Wall Monster Party came through. I emailed it the other day, but I know we've had weird email trouble before, so please let me know if it came through or not =-)

Talk to you soon and happy holidays.
