the REASON for the SEASON.


Last night, I attended the Pre-Christmas Worship Celebration at church. Words cannot describe how beautiful this event truly was. Four ministers in training all spoke on the word of Christ and the true meaning of Christmas. As I listened...I felt tingles through out my entire body and tears flowing down my cheeks. The words spoken, hit me like a ton of bricks. This holiday has become so very commercialized that so many of us truly forget about the REAL meaning of CHRISTmas. We blog and talk about our holiday plans, the gifts under the tree, the oh so delicious recipe's were gonna make, and the beautiful white Christmas we all want. But, what about the ONE who makes all of this possible? Is it too much to ask, to give him praise and Thank our Lord and Savior for giving His life, so that we can live. I don't think so. And, I'm sure most of you can agree. I cannot imagine my life without Christ and thank Him numerous times everyday for my many blessings. Its one thing to count your blessings, but its another to know the Blessor. Recently, I have strengthen my relationship with God and my life has improved tremendously. And, I know it will only continue to get better. Of course none of us are perfect and He knows this. I'm not a Saint. I'm only human like you. My point is...its so easy to get wrapped up in the "busyness" of the holiday season; however, we should NEVER forget the REASON for the SEASON!

Merry Christmas to you and yours!

How true are these words!!! I'm so guilty of everything you said, so thank you for the reminder. I have a relationship with Christ, but it's def not near as strong as it should be and I appreciate your words. I wish I had been in that service with you. I love it when I'm so moved to tears by a lesson/sermon. Glad you had a great Christmas!!!!
