Merry Christmas, everyone! It has been awhile since blogging on here, but today I received a picture that is just beautiful -- and true. It has me thinking about the true reason for Christmas -- not the material gifts we give (which I just bought more of today), not the hustle and bustle (which I'm not a huge fan of -- stood in line for a return at a store today for a really LONG time), not the Christmas Eve Service that we'll attend, not even about the family traditions we take part in or celebrate each year, but Christmas is about Jesus ... the little baby who was born to us so long ago. The little baby, who grew up to be a man who would die on a cross to forgive my sins and yours. This man, Jesus, who loves us so much, is the real reason for Christmas!
Merry, merry Christmas!
