Daily encouragement as you follow His path

Christmas Day 2011

Today we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, God’s greatest gift to mankind.  This year has been a tough one for me, so I am especially focused on the birth of our Savior this year instead of the commercialized version of the season that the world promotes.  I am grateful that though my failures are numerous I am loved and forgiven.  I humbly accept the gift of salvation offered by Jesus.  As a mother, I am making sure that my children stop and “get” the real meaning behind Christmas.  That’s not to say that they aren’t excited by the many presents Santa’s sure to bring.  Our family has deliberately prioritized what’s important – not just during the holiday season, but every day throughout the year.  From now on, we’re doing life differently.
