The Reason for the Season - Merry CHRISTmas
As we put our finishing touches on all we have done. Finish the buckeyes (peanut butter balls for all of you who are not from Ohio), cookie plates ready to hand out, finish any last minute gift wrapping, set the clothes out for church, finish dinner plans and Christmas morning breakfast plans...etc... We need to not forget the whole reason we have Christmas. It is to celebrate the birth of Christ. It's not about Santa and stockings and food. It is about our Savior and his birth.
Dave always reads the Night Before Christmas to his kids on Christmas Eve...but we always read the real Christmas story out of the Bible on Christmas morning.
Enjoy your family, friends and the celebration...just don't forget the real reason for the season..and please don't take give in to saying...Happy Holidays. If you are a believer then be proud to say, Merry Christmas!
