Christmas – The Reason For The Season!

Wow, now that we are officially past Thanksgiving, we can get full swing into Christmas! This is hands down my favorite Holiday. I don’t know if it’s the combination of Love and Laughter, Giving and Gifts, or Family, Fun and Friends but this is the most wonderful time of the year!
We must all keep in mind the true reason for the season, which is JESUS CHRIST! I have children, so the concept of a child being born, raised, tortured, crucified and then buried just to raise again isn’t an easy one. But that was done ALL FOR ME! WOW! Yes He deserves all of MY praise! I surely can not sit here and say I would send my child through that for “people”, what a sacrifice. Don’t we just LOVE HIM!?! John 3:16, “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.”

Christmas is not about a Wii, or PS3, or Gucci, or Toys, or even Lead-Free Toys. It is about a very life-changing, not random, unselfish, sacrificial ultimate act of LOVE. So while you are shopping and caroling, and eating, and laughing, and baking, and doing what many of us do at Christmas time take time to remember the true meaning of the season and show the honor and respect HE is due..
Blessings, Regina

    Thanks for the reminder! It is SO easy to get caught up in the materialism of it all and forget the true gift Christ gave to each and everyone of us! My daughter was too young to understand at all before…and she will still get the very basic, toned down version….but I am really excited to share with her why we celebrate Christmas! Blessings Regina! Thanks for always reminding us what is most important about this holiday.
