Christmas-Jesus-Greatest-Gift

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.
~ John 3:16

Reverence and awe
He sacrificed all for us
Bringing salvation

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! ❤

The Gift of Christmas LYRICS:

Here’s the gift of Christmas, the world at it’s best
We mustn’t forget why the gift of Christmas
Can help remind us remember the rest

Who said that Christmas, yeah
Was only for kids, yeah

We may think it isn’t
But we all know it is

Don’t forget the sad ones
The poor ones and the rest

Let’s all come together
And make this one the best

Here’s the gift of Christmas, the world at it’s best
We mustn’t forget why the gift of Christmas
Can help remind us remember the rest

Don’t forget the child
When born was showered in gifts

How quickly we forget
Just what Christmas is

The wise men and the shepherds
They started up this thing

So long it’s been tradition
Make sure it doesn’t end

Here’s the gift of Christmas, the world at it’s best
We mustn’t forget why the gift of Christmas
Can help remind us remember the rest

Here’s the gift of Christmas, the world at it’s best
We mustn’t forget why the gift of Christmas
Can help remind us remember the rest

Another child dies while Mama cries
Wise are the eyes that realize like sunrise
Keep growing and showing
And while the tears, they keep flowing
There never knowing where the other meal will come from
So we jumped off the rack to give back with a track
It’s so easy to help, and help is the fact
‘Cause while the turkey you’re carving could be a child starving
We all need a lift and love is a free gift

Now at Christmas time everybody will sing
Make all the children smile and grin
Some of them small, some of them look thin
All they need is a little loving
So all of the people just keep moving
Once a year you have to give something
Christmas time and it just now begin
Watch how the children start dancing

Here’s the gift of Christmas, the world at it’s best
We mustn’t forget why the gift of Christmas
Can help remind us remember the rest
