Christmas is the time of year to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
It's also a time for giving, and gifts given from the heart truly are the best. That is what I'm trying to do this year.
This will be my first Christmas without my precious Mama, and I'm going way back to my childhood memories when Mama and Daddy would fill our stockings-which happened to be tube socks-with oranges, apples, tangerines, nuts, and candies. This will be the tradition that I will carry on with my family for every Christmas going forward.
My first-born grandson will be reading from Luke:2 on Christmas eve, which he began doing as soon as he learned to read.
There will be Christmas dinner and my goodness, there will be sweets. My Mama was the queen of sweets and whatever she made, it was delicious. These Cinnamon Sugar Pecans will be gracing the table along with many other goodies for the wonderful family which God has blessed me with. They are simple to make, taste yummy, and just make the house smell like Christmas! Let's make some!
