I had the privilege of being invited to a friend's family Christmas party here in Abu Dhabi last night, on Christmas eve ...
Home cooked with love, roast chicken, sausages with pork bacon and all the trimmings ... It was wonderful!
Christmas cake sugi-style :-) and a Watermelon-inspired jelly too!
This was a wonderful treat, and I gave thanks and thought of all those of us who are away from our families this Christmas ... it reminded me of, Luke 2. So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.
