Christmas meaning

A trip to the airport is in the works for today. DD and baby come in this morning from Tx. I hope that we get a white Christmas for them. The house is in order. The sheets are drying so I can make up a pretty clean fresh bed for her. She is so excited about coming home and we are equally excited.

My prayer this holiday season is that you find the true gift of Christmas and open it with care. Jesus is that gift. He came to this earth as a baby over 2000 years ago. Imagine Mary wrapping up her beautiful newborn and laying him in that manger trough. It wasn't because they were poor that they had to stay in the stable with the animals. It was simply because there wasn't any room in the inn. Don't let that happen again. Don't keep Him outside in the cold because there isn't any room in your heart and home for Him. He created the entire world and then He came to us as a baby in order to redeem the world that He lovingly created from the effects of sin that was never to be a part of this world ever. The work has been completed, the gift purchased, paid for in blood, and it is waiting to unwrapped, opened and accepted. Don't let another Christmas go by without opening up the most precious gift of all.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16.

May your Christmas be filled with the love of a baby born.
