So Christmas Is Here
So what is really important about Christmas. Well it is a time when we as Christians can teach people about the birth of Jesus Christ. We can touch the lives of others and hopefully help them learn about what Christmas is all about. Now if you don't believe in God I am not here to preach to you and make you feel bad. I am just saying that it is a chance to get the word out to people about a wonderful savior that is here. We can reach out to families that want to know more about what this season is about.
It is also a chance for family to spend time with each other. We get one day to sit with each other and look back at all the amazing things that happened during the year. I saw an idea on Pinterest and it was to put a slip of paper in a jar telling each time something good happened then on New Years eve take them out and read them so you can remember how good the year really was. Me and my daughter have been doing this so I can not wait to pull them out and remember the awesomeness that was 2013.
Christmas is a time of togetherness. So make sure that you slow down. Take it all in together. Make sure you say I love you to the people that really matter most. Even if you had a rough year there is something to be grateful for, even if it is just that you made it through the year and now have another to turn things around. Just take the time to enjoy it. Even if you don't have a ton of gifts to give you get to be with people you care for and that is worth more than anything you can purchase.
I probably wont write the next two days so I hope you guys out there have a blessed and wonderful Christmas. I hope your time with your family is the best part of your year.
