The Christmas season is such a fun and festive time full of anticipation and surprises. I fully embrace all aspects of this holiday but I never lose sight of why I celebrate Christmas. I am so proud that even as our children are writing their "wish list" to send to Santa in the North Pole, they are asking us to read them the Bible story of when Baby Jesus was born and they want to talk about what He means to us. They are learning what we know to be true; that the true gift of Christmas is not wrapped under a tree but is God sending Christ to walk among us and bring what we needed most, a savior. The only gift that keeps on giving.
Happy Christmas, everybody!
