As the holiday season is coming to it's close with Christmas behind and New Year's not far away, the thoughts of home have been more in our minds. Being overseas at these times does make the heart yearn for "home" and the traditions of the season. This season we have experienced some wonderful gifts from "home" that have brought such a joy to our hearts! We are so thankful for all who made these special gifts to us possible. As I am journaling this blog I remember the phrase, "keep the home fires burning". We truly have some incredible people in our lives who created an amazing home fire this year and the warmth was felt over these miles! (Here is a link to the World War 1 song: Keep the Home Fires Burning)
Here are a few photos to share the beauty of our season! And never underestimate the power of a "Merry Christmas" or a "Happy New Year" to someone. Being remembered is an amazing gift that you can give someone this season and in the days ahead!
