Honestly, I’m not a huge Christmas person. I believe that Christmas is a mere representation of God giving me (and you) the greatest gift in the universe, the gift of Jesus. I do not ask for Christmas gifts nor expect them. (Sidenote: The Christmas Wishlist post was mere a goal list for things I wanted to buy myself because I had just acquired a new job) The real meaning of Christmas has sort of been lost by many. I hope when I have kids that things such as a Christmas Day Church service won’t become outdated because people want to “spend more time with their families”. I love my family as much as the next person but even when we are together someone is on their phone, another on their computer, and finally someone wines up in the kitchen. Thanksgiving is about food why make Christmas about food again? Oh well. I need to stop being like Ebenezer Scrooge and start being more like Tiny Tim! “God Bless them, every one”
One last thing, this Christmas I want to thank God for my beautiful (and cute) cousin Amy Jegede, she is only 2 months but never the less a representation of God’s goodness. Also if you don’t know the real reason of Christmas, here is one place where the birth of Jesus can be found. Luke 2, the whole thing. While reading this passage this year one part really stood out to be in verse 34 Luke writes: 34 Then Simeon blessed them and said to Mary, his mother: “This child is destined to cause the falling and rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be spoken against, 35 so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your own soul too.”
The bible has made the most accurate predictions in the world. Everything that has been prophesied in the old testament came to past in the New Testament. That why I let God rule my destiny, because He (and He alone) knows my plan & purpose!
In conclusion, Merry Christmas… And I will be announcing my Christmas gift to y’ll shortly. (as in three days time, hopefully)
