It is not just “Looking a Lot Like Christmas,” It Is Christmas!
Happy Christmas Eve Everyone!
Christmas Crazy has come to an end! The month long anticipation(who am I kidding!)…or the year long anticipation if you are truly Crazy for Christmas, has come to an end! The tree is trimmed, the cookies are baked, the presents are wrapped(hopefully!😁), and the song running through your heads is ‘Silent Night.’ We did it! We made it through another year of Christmas Crazy!
So, I have a question for you.
Are you ready to party?
You heard me, I said P A R T Y!
Jesus is having a birthday and He deserves a party!
At the end of the Christmas Crazy, we too often find ourselves overwhelmed, overtired, overspent and truthfully, just over it!
We sing ‘Silent Night’ because we just want to lay down and take a nap! However, the Truth is, it’s time to PARTY! It’s time to sing Happy Birthday to Jesus and put Him first in all of our celebrations!
Do we honor Him, celebrate Him and put Him first?
Or, does He simply get our Left Overs?
Isaiah tells us how worthy He is of all our time, not just our left overs!
When we celebrate Jesus and “throw Him a party,” we are setting an example for others to follow!
This week I received a text from my daughter. She was at my granddaughter’s Christmas party at her school. The teacher had asked the students to write down their favorite Christmas tradition. My daughter sent me a picture of my granddaughter’s writing.
This Christmas tradition was passed down from my grandma to my mom, to me, and now to my children and grandchildren!
We throw a birthday party for Jesus! We go to church together for Christmas Eve Service, then we come home and open up our Christmas jammies. We then light the candles on Jesus’ birthday cake, sing happy birthday to Him, read His story from the book of Luke, say prayers and fall asleep prepared to celebrate Him the next day!
JESUS DESERVES A PARTY! HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS!
Afterall, CHRISTmas is all about Him!
Merry CHRISTmas everyone!
See you in the (almost) New Year!
Speak Truth Love
