The first couple of years we celebrated Jesus' birthday as the James fam,
I made a special cake or pie that we'd put a candle in and sing
"Happy Birthday" to Jesus.
(the one when I had a 3 year old, 10 month old...and was prego. yeah...)
I forgot...until we were in the car on our way to our Christmas Eve service.
No problem. I'd just stop on the way home and grab something from the grocery store.
Give a prego woman a break, right?!
Problem: By the time we left the service, all grocery stores had closed for the holiday.
Wait a minute.....what is that glow?
Beautiful. A Christmas miracle.
As Justin exited the building with the
Thornton Gas Station box of
Little Debbie Christmas Tree Cakes,
I smiled an "exhausted baker, tired mommy, keeper of traditions,
problem of the missing birthday cake solved" kinda smile.
Some traditions you just have to keep. Stress-free ones?!
(not from Thornton Gas Station, but stress-free none-the-less)
It's my way of having my cake and eating it, too.
Have a super day in this Christmas season--
keepin it really about Jesus, All!
