The shopping is done, the stockings are hung, presents wrapped under the tree. Busy days and activities, family time and memories being made. It's been a busy time here... Looking forward to this next week before Christmas to slow down a bit, to take it all in,
to reflect on the reason for the season. Jesus!
Of course it is fun to bring in all those fun traditions that come with the Christmas Season.
We didn't forget to celebrate Saint Nicks Day.
We attended lot's of activities with friends.
And decked the halls with boughs of holly....
This time of year gets busy with shopping and the rush of life. But, personally I like it slower paced. To give time to the rightful things that should be remembered and reflected on. We tend to forget the reason we celebrate Christmas. I don't want the hectic season to shadow the light of Christmas. The celebration of the birth of Christ. Remembering the love He gave to His people when He came in the flesh. He shed His blood for those who believe in Him. He has saved His chosen children. He is a gift to the world. Don't forget, this incarnate gift. He is King and deserves our worship and praise. It is and will always be the most ultimate gift you will ever receive.
Don't take Him for granted. Glorify Him in all that you do. Make Him your Lord and invite Him in as a part of your Christmas this year, and always...Every day. Blessings...
