Christmastime is easily most everyones’ favorite holiday! The lights, the tree, the music, the food, the family, the remembrance & celebration of Christ’s birth bring us all together for wonderful memories that will last a lifetime.
Aside from the cold weather, I’d have to say that Christmas possibly tops the list for me as well. However, I also love Easter, Thanksgiving, & The 4th of July for what those celebrations mean in my life! Mainly, anything that celebrates FREEDOM, whether it be spiritual, political, financial, or any other kind of freedom within a moral nature, is a holiday well worth celebrating to me!
I have a wonderful friend named Mandy who goes all out every year to bring a Christmas celebration to her closest of friends! She spends all day cooking such delicious dishes & she creates the most beautiful dinner setting you can imagine. She even gives each one of us a gift! We spend that time catching up & reinvesting into our friendships with one another. It really is a beautiful way to celebrate God’s love for us!
I hope you all have the happiest of holidays! I know it’s so cliche to say that “Jesus is the reason for the season.” I know it’s easy to get distracted by the traditions, the busyness, the shopping, & the glitz. I pray we all will take the time to thank God from the deepest parts of our hearts to show our gratitude for His son, the blessings He’s give us in our everyday lives, & also for the ability to be a blessing to others. So make sure you bless others this Christmas season!
Merry Christmas & God bless you!
