A Child is Born!

 (St. Charles Christmas)

His name is Jesus, born of the Virgin Mary.  We already have the best gift of all that our Father gave us in a town called Bethlehem.  Today, on Christmas Eve ... as the world slows down, families gather, church doors open and candles are lit ... share your blessings with others as you give thanks.   Praise God for your blessings ... those known and those on their way. 

There's excitement in the air, but not because of man-made traditions -- although they are fun and unite families -- our true excitement is for the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ.  Breathe it in and take more than a moment to remember why Jesus, the Son of God, is our saving grace.  

God created this baby in a virgin's womb because of His love for us. Jesus saved us from darkness and that's why we must shine in His love by always forgiving others and letting the peace of heart which comes from Christ, always be present in our hearts and lives.

As you celebrate the birth of Christ through praise, worship, song, dance, laughter and food ... please pray for the safe return of our military troops fighting in Iraq.

"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men 
on whom His favor rests."   Luke 2:14

Miracles and Blessings ... Kiki here, iCafe Woman Moderne wishes you all a very Blessed and Joyous Christmas.  

While you're home for the holidays, curl up with your favorite child and read these delightful children's books.

Here are a few of my favorite innovative desserts we featured during the year at iCafe Woman Moderne and Joan B. Average, Scriptwriter.  We especially enjoyed the edible fashion and accessories. (we profiled them twice.)  But this little white dress covered with pink roses was my favorite.  I wish I had it hanging in my closet.

This next sweet favorite is a polka dot wedding cake  in the top left corner, adapted from the movie, "Because I Said So," starring Diane Keaton and Mandy Moore.

Next, we have those cute chocolate Stilletoes from Gayle's Chocolates.  (unfortunately, no relation)

Remember those cake and chocolate handbags from Horchow's?
