Merry Christmas From The Humble Homestead!
It's that time of year!
Time to embrace the Christmas Season and all its hustle and bustle. But let's not forget the real reason we celebrate Christ-mas. We have so much to be grateful for and especially the birth of our Saviour. As the commercials promote buying cars and expensive jewelry as a Christmas gift for a loved one let's remember that celebrating our Saviour doesn't cost a thing. That spending time, baking cookies, or playing board games with our family doesn't cost a thing either. We tend to get so caught up in the gift-giving that we forget what we should really be dwelling on and that is LOVE! The Love that Jesus gives us freely if we will just let him into our lives and the Love we get from family. I am at fault for getting caught up in the gift-giving and trying to give my kids a nice Christmas there is nothing wrong with that as long as you don't go into debt for it. But the Lord quickens my spirit when I start getting overwhelmed and reminds me that I need to slow down and just meditate on him and his word. I need to read books with my girls and play games. I need to bake cookies and just be in the moment with them. Life is hard and unpredictable but one thing that is always constant is JESUS! So I pray that you have a wonderful LOVE filled Christ-mas. Let's savor the moments we have today and not dwell on what's to come because you never know what tomorrow may hold. God Bless and spread some Christmas Joy!!!
