I absolutely love the Baxter family. Read every one of the books. As I read this book, the characters came alive. Each Baxter has
their own personality and a story to go along with it.
 
But this story goes deeper than all the others.
Probably because of tragedy. Pain is a part of life. How one deals with hurt sets the course in life. I love how the Baxters chart their course.
 
Tears fell as my heart warmed. Five-Stars.

I look forward to more Baxter family books. Looking
forward when the Baxters are on TV.

Vacationing at Disney World is every family’s dream and for the Mitchell family, it’s going to happen. The magic of Disney touched the family until they traveled home, when Riley, the family dog, became lost.

 

 
So much about this book, I enjoyed. The interaction between dad and son. The love between parents and children, especially in a place like Disney World. (Which felt as though I were there.) And the power of love emanating from a dog. (Riley caused a homeless man to have hope.)
 
The contrast between the homeless camp and family at Disney added an element to the story.
 
Another point I enjoyed: The point of view through Riley’s eyes. That element, like the first book, “Rescuing Finley” was so very good.
 
The setting is Christmas time, but this is a book for all seasons. Many tears fell as I read the story. I’m already looking forward to the next book in this series.

Several years ago, during Christmas, my daughter became sick. Kristina, then seven, couldn’t tolerate food or liquids. Drinking water hurt. We exhausted our attempts at the Medical Center here in Yankton, so to Omaha Children’s Hospital we went.

We were there over Christmas. Only one person stayed with Kristina overnight and it was my turn to go back to the motel room on Christmas Eve.

Walking from the car to the motel door was painful. Downcast and lonely, I felt. After entering the room, a thought dropped into my heart. Is this what Joseph experienced? He knocked on doors to only be rejected. “My wife will give birth; any room for us?” NO

Then another impression dropped in my heart. In a few hours, the heavens lit up with glory. I slept that night in peace.

The next morning I went to the hospital. What I saw when I walked in overwhelmed me. Presents filled the room.

The night pain, erased by the kindness of strangers.

Christmas Story

It was a warm time at my Mom’s last night. We started by enjoying a meal of ham and roast beef. Of course my sister in law brought her famous raisin cream pie. (My favorite) Then we went to my brother’s church. Small church of about 30 people. Janine, my sister in law is great on the flute and did a special. The lights were turned off and we enjoyed the candle light service. The Pastor had an unforgettable sermon. He spoke about a King wanting to win the hand of a maiden. He took off his Kingly robes and became a simple servant in a small village. Over time the maiden fell in love with him, then he revealed his true title. Jesus laid down His titles to draw us in love with Himself.
Then back to my Mom’s to open gifts. There were close to 20 of us. It was a wonderful time.

I’d love to hear your Christmas Story.
