We hope you have a Merry and Blessed Christmas!
We’re taking a break from blogging this afternoon and all day Christmas. We’ve shared some links to some great food and last minute gift ideas below… but first we want to share something from our heart…
Although we spend countless hours finding great deals to help you save money as you shop for Christmas, we want to let you know that all of us on the Fabulessly Frugal team knows what the REAL meaning of Christmas is. As we bring 2015 to a close and reflect on the year, we can’t help but recognize the blessings we’ve been given. Despite personal struggles we’ve each experienced, we are grateful for the GIFT that our loving Heavenly Father gave us… His Son. I can’t imagine a world with out the hope that comes through Christ. I’ve found the content on this site to be uplifting, ecouraging, and inspiring. Feel free to check it out… there are also some great videos by many YouTube stars… my favorites are by Lindsey Stirling and David Archuleta (with Nathan Pacheco).
And here are some other favorite and uplifting Christmas videos we’ve enjoyed this year. This one I thought was so beautiful… it’s a beautiful metaphor for the freedom found when we turn to Christ.
And this one is one that we LOVE to blast at my house… another one chalk full of YouTube starts making a record of the largest live nativity….
AND this one is a new one that I’ve fallen in love with this year as well…
We wish each of you a wonderful Christmas with your families and loved ones!
