I'll be Home for Christmas

This has been a different kind of Christmas for our family this year.  There has been no time to decorate, send out Christmas cards, or finish all the shopping.  But, we are together, and that it the best Christmas present I could ever ask for. 
I've learned in recent months that "Home is where the heart is". Really, it's true.  It doesn't matter if it's in an apartment in good ole' College Station, my folks house, a crummy old hotel room, or even in some stables with a hay filled manger for a crib... You can be "home" anywhere. 
I know that my Redeemer lives!  I know that he loves ME, Jessica Lynn Payne. He loves me enough to suffer and die for all my sins and weaknesses, so that I can conquer death and live again with my family in Heaven.  

"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men." -St. Luke 2:14
