I love this time a year, not for the same reasons I did as a kid or even for the same reasons as I did when I was unsaved. I love this time of year and all it stands for and no matter how politically correct you are it is still CHRISTmas! I find it ironic as I am writing this I am also thinking of the poor people that were just out with their children and shopping with friends and such when that guy in Oregon decided to take away their feeling of safety last night at that mall. I heard on Fox News earlier them talking about the guy that was killed and they said a life taken too soon but was it really. All our days are numbered. Each and every one of them God knows. In all of this we can find peace and joy knowing that if we are saved Christ came as a baby and was born , And was born to DIE!! Christmas is about hope. WE have hope in knowing where we are going after this life, this whole life is just temporary! Everything in it, IS JUST TEMPORARY. So, this year please remember to keep it about what it should be about. yes, as a family we give our kids presents but we also daily remind our kids what it is all about. And these politically correct people may say Happy Holidays or call it a Holiday Tree but as we know and have heard several times YOU CAN'T FIX STUPID. (oops , if my kids were reading this they would say mamaaaaaaaaaaaaa you said the s word,lol). But, on a ETERNAL SERIOUS note- if you do not know Jesus as your Lord and Saviour the biggest gift you can give your family and yourself this year is you turning your life over to Jesus. To be saved and also have the hope in knowing where you will go after this life is over because NO MATTER WHAT YOU GET FOR CHRISTMAS THIS YEAR-the best gift already came and it can be freely yours. All you have to do is ask Jesus in your heart, have faith in Him, and live your life for Him. I am so thankful for all that God has done in my life, for all he has given me,it is all so undeserving! So.. during this time a year I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and I hope your New Year will be blessed.
