The True Meaning Of Christmas !

Our society seems to be so much more commercial these days when it comes to Christmas. You can walk in any store days before Halloween and already the Christmas decorations are coming out and pre-packaged gifts are on sale.
However, we need to remember the real meaning of Christmas as adults so that our children will not end up so caught up in Christmas being about getting presents and Santa coming that that’s all they will be looking forward to.
The real meaning of Christmas of course is the birth of Christ. Without any of that there wouldn't even be a Christmas. Even if you don’t do it now, you can start a new tradition of reading the Christmas story from the bible each Christmas Eve so that children begin to understand the real meaning of Christmas.
We all think our children are special when they are born and each and every one of them are, however, when Christ was born in Bethlehem there was no baby more special than Him. He was not created the way other children are created. He was created by a Heavenly being and that is what made Him so special...Kristen Carol Anderson

  1. Amen Dr Fred!! We are working on this very thing. Chase knows Santa is coming (so he better be good!) and he also knows it's Jesus' birthday. I am trying to put in his 4 year old mind how it all fits together.
    Lots of love...Leslie
