It’s officially time to count down to Christmas!
This year I’m changing Christmas…
I’m not going to put a huge focus on the presents but more
on the presence
of the Greatest Gift ever given!
When we decorate our tree, we’ll talk about the tree that
He gave His life on
and He did it all for us!
When we decorate our home, we’ll talk about how Jesus
came into our world with no home
and when we put our children to bed at night,
we’ll tell them how the
Greatest Human to ever walk the earth
was laid in a manger
and had no bed of His own.
Oh yes, we will be giving gifts and decorating and eating
a Christmas feast as we have done
all the years before
we will turn our focus on the
Reason for the Season
and remember that HE is the reason we have Christmas,
the reason that we celebrate!
We have already entered the season of
what a beautiful privilege we have to celebrate
the One who has saved us!
And I can only imagine how Mary must have felt,
knowing that she was carrying
He is our hope, our joy, our salvation
and may we all
turn our eyes toward the Heavens
and thank God for such a precious gift!
