Christmas X 7

By various authors and you, too, hopefully.

I challenged our TGBA authors to write a seven word sentence about Christmas. Today's post is the result of that challenge. I hope you enjoy it and will add your own seven word description of whatever comes into your mind/heart when you hear the word "Christmas."

Childhood memories from Christmases long, long ago.

Intentionally reflecting daily on Christ's miraculous birth!
Sharon Wilhite

Gail Smith

And from Robin, a seven word series:
