Today I’d like to share a few thoughts from my children on this holiday season.
First, from my 17 year old daughter:
Growing up, I always knew that Christmas was about Jesus and celebrating His birthday. As I’ve gotten older, I have noticed that not a lot of people acknowledge what Christmas is truly all about. Instead, they focus more on Santa Clause.
Also, I have seen a lot of people shorten Christmas to “X-mas,” which disturbs me because it is like taking Christ completely out of Christmas. My family and I will continue to say Merry Christmas and to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas.
When I asked my 10 year old daughter, “What does Christmas mean to you?” she responded with, “Love, peace, and joy.”
While Christmas has now come and gone, we trust that our readers have kept Christ in Christmas and that your holiday was filled with love, peace, and joy straight from our Lord and Savior who was once a little baby laying in a manger … baby Jesus!
