Christmas time—oh so sweet!!

nativity gift

Christmas is my favorite time of the year!  There seems to be more peace, more camaraderie, more hope and joy as the days creep ever closer to Christmas day.  However, as a society, we often focus on the gifts–what we will give, what we will get, black Friday, cyber Monday, holiday specials, sales, coupons!  The list goes on and on.  Christ has been almost completely removed from Christmas, but not in my heart, nor my home!

Though Christ was not truly born on Christmas day, it is a day we celebrate his birth.  It was his birth that brings hope for a future, meaning to life, and joy midst the pain.  Through his sacrifice on the cross, we are saved when we claim him and fall obediently into his arms.  What a blessing to know that God is there, that he cared enough about us to send his only Son to be our salvation and our light!  What a beautiful thing to behold another human being laying down his life for those he loves!  What a miraculous event to be conceived through the power of God!  So as you trim your tree with decorations and lights, as you put up the evergreen decorations and bring out the Nativity seen….remember Christmas is about what Christ has done for us.  He has given us the most precious, priceless, and valuable gift…ETERNAL LIFE!

All my love and may the joy of the birth of Christ carry you through the days and years to come! ❤

  2. Christmas is a beautiful time of year to ponder the gift of the Christ child to us…I do not let the hollowness of the “marketed” Christmas version take away my joy:-) I love all things Christmas, things that bring joy to the soul. Christmas music soothes my spirit!

    For some reason, I am feeling a gentler, and more joyous spirit in the air this year. When you make the extra effort to greet or catch the eye of a stranger, you usually will inspire a smile and some good cheer:-)

    We need to BE and spread the True Christmas Spirit:-)

    Love and Christmas Blessings,

  3. More peace? More comraderie? You must live in a different town than I do . I have already witnessed a big argument over a parking space at a shopping mall and it’s only just begun. But you are definitely right about it being about Christ. He came to give us abundant life, peace, joy, and eternal life. It’s up to us to accept it and live it. I abhore how commercialized it has become.

    • I live a city that is filled with arguments and crazy shoppers right now as well. Just the vibe tends to be more mellow except at the shopping malls and other retail stores!!! I feel you!
