Merry Christmas! – A Time For Family

1409260_26919826Christmas has always held wonder for me. I love buying gifts and seeing the delight on the recipient’s face as they open them. Especially really little ones who don’t know your suppose to open the paper instead of chew on it. But more than the gifts, the time with family is treasured as we remember the birth of Christ.

Yesterday my youngest son surprised me during our family devotion time. I asked the kids to say one of the verses that go with the Christmas story and encouraged them to say what comes next. Out of nowhere my five year old says, “In the City of David.”

As you can guess I was a bit surprised because I haven’t done that verse this Christmas yet with the family. Where did he learn it? Charlie Brown’s Christmas.

 

But there it was in the middle of a cartoon. The meaning of Christmas. In all of the lights, decorations, shopping, presents, and even sadness for those who’ve lost family this season, I pray that none of us will lose sight of the meaning of Christmas.

We celebrate the greatest gift of all time. We celebrate it with gusto because it is the very fabric of our faith. 

May you find joy in the reason for Christmas this year. May you find peace in it’s promise. May you find comfort in its message of hope for the future. 

I will be taking a break from blogging to be with family and celebrate this season. My next post will be on January second. My prayers are with each of you whether you look forward to this season or you face this season with new challenges, remember you are never alone. God be with you!

Merry Christmas From My Family To Yours!
