Merry Christmas to you all!
It’s the 25th of December today and my most favourite day of the year!
I am keeping this short and sweet as I’m sure you will be spending the day with loved ones and not scouring the internet reading random blogs! To be honest, I have snuck away from my family for a few moments to get this done while we are all recovering from our enormous and ever so delicious Christmas dinner, but I am itching to get back to the family to play some of the games the kids got for Christmas, so short and sweet this will be!
My prayer for all of you reading this, is that you will take the time to reflect today on what it really means. Yes, the festivities are fun, the food is great and I LOVE spending time with my family, but when it comes down to it, today it’s all about Jesus!
That’s right, what’s most important about today is not the pressies, it’s not the rellies arriving on mass and it’s not even about the houses covered in lights, but it’s all about the day we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Saviour who came to save us all.
If it wasn’t for this baby’s birth that we celebrate today, I honestly have no idea where I would be, definitely not where I am today with so many blessings in my life!
I cannot tell you how grateful I am to God for sending his son to earth to save us all from a life of sin and shame. I for one am grateful and today is the perfect day to reflect on this.
So as you go off and spend time with your loved ones, please take a moment to appreciate where you are, what you have, and to think about the man who gave His all for you to have this Blessed life.
