My wife Anita collected Precious Moments figurines for a long time. I suppose she still does to some degree. When we got married the wedding cake topper was a Precious Moments cake topper. So for our first Christmas as a married couple it seemed like the perfect ornament was the Precious Moments "First Christmas" ornament.
We spent that first Christmas morning in our simple little Married Housing room at Charleston Southern. I remember Anita waking me up at four o'clock in the morning and sending me on a scavenger hunt all over campus to find my new guitar.
I'm sure that my kids will grow tired of hearing these stories but I never get tired of remembering them and telling them. I'm a blessed man and every year I'm reminded just how blessed.
