Spinach Dip ready to go in the oven tomorrow. Check.
I think I am organized and ready to go.
This year Christmas is on a SUNDAY!
I wish Christmas could always be on Sunday, on the Lord's Day. Seems Fitting to me!
I love that so many will be spending some time tomorrow worshiping our Lord Jesus-
THE GREATEST GIFT EVER GIVEN TO US!!!
Its not all about the presents, and how good my food is, or isn't. The focus needs to be on CHRIST- Christmas is the celebration of the baby JESUS! It is easy in this commercialized world for me to almost forget at times, IT IS NOT ABOUT HOW GOOD IT ALL IS. IT IS NOT ABOUT THE PRESENTS! The key to Christmas is that the greatest gift ever has already been payed for and delivered to us.
Christ Jesus was born, died for our sins on the Cross,was buried and ROSE again, that I may have eternal life.There is nothing more special, nothing more essential, nothing compares...NOT A THING.
This is why I wish every Christmas was on a Sunday, to really Remind ME, and everyone what its all really about! I wish we had a church service each Christmas Day at least.
I hope that this year we are able to really share and emphasise with our kids this MESSAGE. Yes, we do Santa. Yes, we do presents, Yes Mommy makes tons of yummy food. But why??? TO CELEBRATE THE BIRTH OF CHRIST JESUS. Its not about them, or me, its about HIM.
So back to FOOD, what am I serving this year?
