I can’t believe it’s Christmas already!!! It seems like December 1 was yesterday. I finished my Christmas shopping. My family is going to visit my dad’s family in Michigan. Sadly, there’s no snow. :(
I’ve been thinking about Christmas and what happened on the first Christmas. Jesus was born! Nowadays we just sit around with Santa and cookies and Christmas trees? There’s something wrong with that, people. I want to remember the real reason for Christmas, Jesus’s birth. Often I find myself greedily grabbing goodies for myself, instead of looking at what Jesus has done and giving goodies to other people.
I mean, in the end, it’s not about “the spirit of Christmas” (although that is a lovely thing, too.) It’s about the Christ in Christmas.
On a lighter note- watch this hilarious video by Christian comedian Tim Hawkins: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ey_IL57a-b0&feature=related
Merry Christmas, and God bless us, everyone!
