Thanksgiving has passed, and Christmas is upon us. In fact, our Christmas festivities already began last weekend, will continue this weekend, and not end until the week after that.
It’s easy to get caught up in all the hubbub that surrounds this season – decorations, lights, gifts, get-togethers, food…the list is endless. Let’s stop for a minute and remember the TRUE reason for the season – Jesus.
A few weeks ago I was at a craft fair (looking for Christmas gifts, nonetheless), and a wooden plaque that read “Celebrate Jesus” caught my attention. These two words are so simple, yet so profound, aren’t they? They pricked my soul, causing me to stop and think about the upcoming Christmas season.
