I hope that you’re home is filled with the spirit of Christmas! Christmas has changed quite a bit in our house since we’ve had little ones roaming around. This year we’re especially excited because Cameron will at least have some idea of what is going on.
We try not to go overboard with Christmas gifts for the kids. They just had birthdays last month and they already have rooms overflowing with toys. We stick to a few fun gifts, some necessities, and leave the spoiling to the grandparents! (They’re good at it!)
Kailey is finally at an age where she recognizing December 25th not only as Christmas, but also as Jesus’ birthday. In an effort to keep our focus on the Reason for the Season, we’ve been discussing why we do certain things this time of year. I think this message can benefit all of us, at any age. I hope it can be a blessing to you!
We decorate the Christmas tree with lights
symbolizing that Jesus is the Light of the world.
The gifts under the Christmas Tree represent the greatest gift of all,
Jesus, and the salvation He offers.
The Christmas tree represents the cross on which Jesus died
to cover a multitude of sins… your sins and mine.
As we gather together with family and friends to open presents and share a meal, let’s remember the Reason for the Season – God’s Only Son took on flesh, lived a perfect life, and then was crucified for US so that we may live in HIM. Life gets a whole lot brighter when you have the gift of eternal life.
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
