The Greatest Love Story of All!

Merry Christmas my dear friends!

Just a quick post tonight. I’m currently snuggled up on the couch with my sweet little rosy cheeked niece, and we’re watching what else… a Hallmark movie 🙂

But I wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. One that is full of special moments with loved ones, gut busting laughter, meaningful conversation, and peace that comes from Jesus, born this day.

And as we celebrate the Baby in the manger, may we not forget the reason He came to earth this holy night: He came to embrace the Cross. To give His life in sacrifice, out of an unimaginable love for you and me.

A love that not only is shown in the precious wounds on His hands and feet, but also communicated through His very name: Emmanuel, meaning “God with us.”

A thrill of hope – that God would come to earth in order to just be with us. And give His life so we could be with Him forever.

It turns out that the Nativity story is not just a Christmas miracle, but actually the greatest love story of all.

And take it from this Hallmark movie aficionado…I know a good one when I see it.

But in all seriousness. Merry Christmas, my dear friends. Sending you all the love in the world.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

  1. Merry Christmas! May you and your loved ones be filled with peace, love, and joy through both this season and coming year. You are blessed and a blessing to this world! 🙂

  2. A thrill of hope…

    What a phrase! It always gives me a shiver

    Interesting how the best Christmas stories and songs always have some glimpse of the darkness and sadness of this weary world

    Hoping you have a Merry Christmas!

  3. My dear friend,

    For you and your family blessed Christmas days in peace and harmony.
    May we all remember the birth of Jesus Christ and make us aware of how much he suffered – for us. Real Christmas starts from within.

    Love and peace to the world
    Warm hugs to you, my dear friend – MERRY CHRISTMAS!

      • Thanks a lot, don’t forget me during this Christmas especially during boxing day. I love to have a gift too. This beautybeyondbones is really amazing. When I was going through them it seems a lot of wonderful talent you got there. I will let people know about your work of greatness. Merry Christmas

  4. God Bless you continually Caralyn, and I know He will, as you always bring the Truth of His Love in your posts. The Love of God is shown in Jesus. And as you proclaim so clearly, the real purpose of the Christ coming to earth from the Glories of Heaven, was to make His way to Calvary, and the cross. He did that so willingly, for each of us.
    But HALLELUJAH, there was Victory when Jesus walked out of that tomb.
    Without the cross, there was no need for the manger, because the purpose in the incarceration was the death, burial, resurrection of our Lord. And He is coming again, Double HALLELUJAH!!

    Merry Christmas Caralyn, and a Merry Christmas to your Mom and Dad. And may each of you experience a God directed and blessed 2019.

    Luv, 😀🌹❤️😘

    • Thank you so much George. Amen — Victory indeed! Thank you for much a beautiful reflection. Merry merry Christmas my dear friend. Hugs and love xox

  5. Merriest of Christmasses, dear friend. As always, I love you and God bless you. I gave your book to my son for Christmas to help build him up from years of verbal abuse from his step parents. I pray it helps and thank you for writing it. Love and hugs! XO 😄 ❤

    • Aw Tonya, merry Christmas, you beautiful soul. God bless you as well. And wow – I am so touched by that. I will definitely be praying for him as he makes his way through my book. I’m so sorry to hear that he went through that verbal abuse. Breaks my heart. No one deserves that. You’re a good mama 🙂 sending lots of love and merry merry Christmas!
