With all of our imperfections, we begin and end each day at the foot of the cross. It is here where our story begins and we pray it is where it will end. "Jesus said: Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light." ~Matthew 11:28-30~
Listen to God's voice at the foot of the crucifix." ~St. Gaspar del Bufaro~

Happy Birthday Jesus!
This was a highlight to my day...Singing in celebration of Our Lord's birth.
I know there are so many cute ideas for making birthday cakes for Jesus out there, so thought I'd share this cupcake idea...We made red velvet cupcakes and found these little plastic Nativity figures at our local cake decorating supply store. However, I noticed they can also be found online, if you care to order for next year:) They were the perfect size for cupcakes! The Star of Bethlehem cupcake toppers were found at the cake supply store as well. I peeked around a bit online but couldn't find them. I'm holding on to these so we can re-use them next year!
Praying your faith was renewed, like mine, in the JOY of this wondrous day:)
(Dad was on duty at the Fire Department. We missed him... but he was with us in spirit:) ~Merry Christmas~
