Merry Christmas

This year has been difficult for some of us. But remember the true reason we give gifts, have a holiday, and share in the love and warmth of this season.
Because God gave us a gift first. He gave himself, in human form, to die for us on a cross so that we can connect with Him for all eternity.
That is the gift this Christmas.
And to take that gift, and love others, that is our gift to the world, in honour of Jesus Christ.
My dearest wish this Christmas is for you to remember this.
Love and have life. This is why we have Christmas.
Merry Christmas

You are so right about the true meaning of Christmas. I have been pleased that most of the Christmas cards we have received this year have had a religious theme. Some of the words have touched my heart so much that I plan to share them with my email pals.

A blessed Christmas to you!

Great post! That has been what has kept me sane during the craziness of the holidays this year. Remembering that it is not about what gifts you get or give to others. It's about celebrating God's gift to the world. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
