I remember being so excited about Christmas as a child. The anticipation. The laying in bed hearing noises and wondering if it was Santa I heard.
Now, I watch my own children. Trying my best to raise them in a godly home, I watch the wonder of the season in their eyes. How they touch the tree. Watching the lights.Flicking the ornaments. The quietness. The stillness. The holiness of it all.
We talk about the true meaing.
The birth of our Lord, our Savior.
I wonder how many people really truly believe.
Not in Santa.
The first gift.
The only gift that matters.
Oh, how I love Him. How I want to please Him.
Awesome, Holy. Wonderful.
Because of Him, I live. Because of Him, I have a hope and future. Because of that gift of His life. Of His death. Of His Resurrection.
Thank you, God, for the wonder of the season. Thank you, God. for your Son, Jesus Christ.
