Merry Christmas

 Merry Christmas! I can not believe Christmas is here already, but I'm so glad it is. It's a time of laughter, and special moments with my family. I have been so blessed this year, I have so much to be grateful for. I am so thankful God sent his son to come on this earth to be born. As I read the story of Jesus's birth I learn something new every year or even think about the passage differently. Its like every year something new and exciting pops out at me, and says "Jenna, did you think about it this way?" So this year it just really touched me how the wisemen followed the star, and how they fulfilled their mission, which was to find baby Jesus. So as I was thinking about how they must have felt and exactly what was happening at the time, I loved how the wiseman didn't care what Joseph and Mary thought of them. They came for one purpose, to worship baby Jesus. They didn't care how they looked when they brought gifts, all that mattered to them was to see their King. I love this because that's what it should be about, being with the Lord and not caring what others might think of us. Worshiping, loving, and proclaiming that Jesus is Lord. Not only today do I want to remember this, but throughout my new year as well! I hope this touched you in someway, and I hope you have a Merry Christmas!
