Christmas Eve Thoughts

As I was baking Christmas Cookies this morning, I was listening to our liberal media. There were a few on the morning show saying how Christmas "sucked" (i hate that word by the way) And how everything about Christmas "S". I said to myself out loud, (yes I frequently talk to my self aloud) I LOVE Christmas! I love everything about Christmas! I love decorating, parties, Santa, The nativity, Church, the music, shopping, family, friends. I love everything about Christmas!
I felt sorry for the ones who feel like Christmas "s"! Where is their faith? Where is their family? Yes, there is a bunch of hustle and bustle during this time of year, But there are also times of quite! I try not to get caught up in the "hustle and bustle". I love to watch Christmas movies on the Hallmark channel while wrapping gifts. I love to watch Christmas movies with my family cuddled up on the couch. I love to see the joy of my family and friends when they open a gift I have purchased for them. I love to go to church and sing about the birth of Jesus! I love to go to Christmas pageants that children are involved in! I love to help those in need! Christmas is when we celebrate the birth of our Savior. We celebrate the miracle of Jesus! I want to pass on the joy that Jesus gives me to others.
I pray that you will slow down today... enjoy your family, friends, and attend a Christmas Eve service! Christmas is about the birth of our Savior... Celebrate!
