Caught Up in the Christmas Rush?

Caught up in the Christmas rush? Not really enjoying the season? Stressed about family, or money, and the big dinner? Well, I totally understand. But you see Christmas isn't all about the gifts and the money...that's nice and all, but that isn't the reason why we celebrate Christmas. Christmas is about Jesus Christ the Savoir who was born. Luke 2:11 "Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord." The savoir who came down from heaven to proclaim that he is the son of God. It is the time to rejoice and be glad that Christ was born. Without Jesus Christ being born on this night...he would not have been able to die on the cross for our sins. I am truly blessed to know the Lord. Without Him my life would have no purpose. I am truly grateful, and thankful that God sent his son to be born. So as we all look forward to this special Christmas day, remember that Jesus is the reason for the season. I wish you all a Merry Christmas!! <3



Christmas Symbols, that I thought were so neat!

1. Meaning behind the gifts: Matthew 2:1-11, John 3:16. Wise men brought gifts to baby Jesus to honor his birth.

2. Bells: John 10:16. Ring out to bring lost sheep back to the fold.

3. Star and Lights: Matthew 2:9-10. Star that told Christ is born.

4. Colors: Red = His blood. White = Purity. Green = Everlasting Life

5. Wreaths: Gods everlasting love.
