I Love Christmas

I Love Christmas

I love Christmas!  I love the lights, the busyness, hunting for the right gift, wrapping and giving, cooking and baking, the decorating, parades, Christmas parties, concerts, and the special love people have at this time of year.

I love Christmas!  I decorate my house beginning on Thanksgiving evening (if not beforeJ) because I want to enjoy every minute of the beauty this season affords.  Some say, “too much trouble,” especially since I live alone, but the tree and lights bring such peace to my spirit as in the quiet glow I read, reflect, and renew.

I love Christmas!  Because of my love for Jesus.  I love this season of celebrations for HIS birthday.  All the preparations are for His party, His special day. Though our party may seem simple to some, HE and I have a grand time.   I just think He is so worth it all.

I love Christmas!  I love the fact that the Jesus I came to know as a young child continues to walk with me daily as I grow older.  His constant presence, unfailing love, and sweet peace—His presents to me through the year—remind me of the miracle of His birth and the true meaning of this season which is love.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 
John 3:16
