My kids get out tomorrow for break, so I have been scurrying around trying to make sure everything that needs to be handled before I am full-time Mommy again is complete. My evenings have been spent making memories and addressing Christmas cards, so I apologize that this little blog has suffered!
A couple of days ago I read an interesting post I thought I would pass along. I don't intend to start a debate here...I believe deep, rich, true faith is far more than just 'what we do' (i.e., going to church on Christmas Day or not) but I do think what we do is often an outward representation of what is going on in our hearts.
While my 'list of reasons' might look slightly different than this author's, I thought the post had some worthwhile points to ponder.
Will we make Christmas Day 'all about us,' our traditions, our comfort, our memory making, our convenience or will will rearrange things to 'accommodate' the observance of the One who went to such great lengths for us?
What message does it send about what we really worship: the Giver or the Gifts?
