What’s your favorite part about Christmas?
A good question. So I don’t know why we didn’t think to ask the children this before.
Our family had been on a long journey, trying to find the “right” way to celebrate Christmas. (It’s okay, you can laugh – we think it’s funny too.)
It began years earlier when we were convicted on not bringing “commercialism” into our Christmas. Our first solution was to swing so far in the other direction that we did almost nothing. We just sat at home and stared at each other. But somehow that didn’t feel right either.
So back to the drawing board. What traditions do we keep and which ones do we ditch?
Gifts…or not? A tree…or not? Stockings…or not? Cards, cookies, crafts….?
We wanted to know what would add meaning to our Christmas celebration and what would merely detract…..
Today I’m excited about being a part of Karen Ehman’s 12 Days of Christmas and Giveaway! You can click here to finish reading the post AND to enter the giveaway. It’s easy to enter and I LOVE the Anderson Family Farm products, so I hope you take a minute to pop over there!
Today’s give-away is an Anderson Family Farm gift basket filled with a variety of goat milk products. Opening this gift basket, you will uncover a bottle of their limited, seasonal lotion, Christmas Blend. This lotion carries a fine gold mica that shimmers on your skin; it smells of Frankincense and Myrrh essential oils. These were the gifts of the magi to the infant Jesus all those thousands of years ago.
Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. Gifts for a King. Gifts given in that dirty stable where God gave the greatest Gift of all. The King who left the glory of heaven to be clothed in flesh.
Complementing the lotion is a generous assortment of molded goat milk soaps. As you dig deeper into the gift basket, you’ll also unwrap their beeswax lip balm, discover their travel size goat milk lotion, and find a lotion bar, which soothes skin chapped by winter. Finally, pull out the bath salts, which contain 18 ounces of French sea salts and Epsom salts for smooth silky baths and skin.
You can see more from Anderson Family Farm here: AndersonFamilyFarm. I’m sure you’ll enjoy meeting them.
And I’ll see you over at the Giveaway!
In His grace,
