Christmas Day

Quiet.  Slow.  Worshipful.  Playful.  Delicious. 

Our Christmas Day at home with just the six of us.  Learning a new hymn.  Eating our traditional gingerbread waffles.

"The Bible is not alien to the world of food.  In fact, feeding the hungry with good food is one of the primary ways that the Bible talks about the gospel of the redeeming grace of Jesus....But the Bible is even more direct when it comes to our spiritual hunger.  It tells us that Jesus is the only food that will ever satisfy the needy, groaning hunger that is in the heart of every one of us." 
~Paul David Tripp, "Come, Let Us Adore Him"
