We just finished watching the movie Christmas with the Kranks tonight. My husband bought it on Tuesday. It's a funny movie but it has me thinking that I can't believe it's that time of the year already. One of my favorite holidays, Thanksgiving, is a week away and then after that the count is on until Christmas. It's too bad that people are made to feel pressured in one way or another to buy a ton of gifts and to get the latest and greatest for their loved ones. When in reality what they're doing, in my mind, is robbing others of the true meaning of Christmas and filling it with worldly possessions. I purposely, well actually my husband and I, don't buy our kids a ton for Christmas because we don't want to fill their heads with a false notion that that's what Christmas is all about. We want to keep our family reflecting on Jesus, He is the true meaning of Christmas not what's under the tree. It's sad to see so many shoppers out there trying to beat the hustle and bustle of shopping in order to get the best deal. I say get what you wish for those you love and if they don't appreciate it, then they're missing the meaning behind it in the first place.
I truly wish each of you a wonderful, safe and peaceful holiday season as it is approaching us ever so quickly! May each of you seek to find Jesus as the true meaning of the season and to keep Jesus as your main focus. What a wonderful gift God has truly given us in Christ Jesus our Lord! Blessings to you!!
